DIY Porch Swing for under $30

I’ve been wanting a porch swing for some time now so this past weekend I decided it was time to make one.  My goal was to keep this build as inexpensive as possible and I’m happy to say that was definitely achieved!  This swing only cost around $30!
Here’s how….


I used scrap wood to make the frame and supports for the seat


I cut down a pallet to make the backrest for the swing


I attached the two pieces together with screws


For the seat slats I used a broken down pallet and some fence board


I decided to craft drink holders


and after A LOT of sanding it was worth the worn fingernails!


I bought a porch swing chain kit at Lowe’s and 4 screw hooks and that was my only expense!


We have already enjoyed some lazy afternoons relaxing in our new swing!

$30 well spent!
