How to Build Bed Swing

I built one of these years ago for my mom and had the hardest time giving it up once it was time to hand it over because I just loved it so much. However, at the time I really didn’t have a good place to hang it anyhow. Now that we’ve moved into the woods, I decided to build one for myself and hang it out in the yard where I can see the nice scenic views out to the east.

If you’re interested in building your own, I have put together a set of detailed plans found here.  I know that sometime folks prefer to hang these sort of swings from a free standing covered structure…like a mini gazebo.  Well, I built one of those too : ) Take a look here if you’re interested. Also, if the bed swing is not really your thing and you’re more interested in a standard porch swing, I have a FREE template to make your own porch swing found here as well as a how-to video to go with it found here.

These are some of the things I used to make this project.
