After the top rail is in place, take the remaining 1×2’s and install directly below the top rail. (See pictures below.) Install the 21″ pieces on the sides and the last 46″ along the back.
|Now that everything is installed, you can make it pretty! I actually designed this swing to accommodate a crib size mattress, BECAUSE they are considerably cheaper than buying foam to make a cushion. Another bonus for all my sewing illiterate friends, you can slap a crib sheet on it and call it good!|
Add some throw pillows and you are done! Now sit down, open a nice cold Diet Coke and relax in your new swing!
