Door to Hanging Daybed

Door to Hanging Daybed

Is there anything better than swinging? Whether it's the freedom of furiously pumping your legs, trying to get your swing level with the top of the bars, a lazy afternoon spent swaying in a hammock or rocking in a chair on the front porch, there's something about that back and forth motion that taps a primitive chord in all of us.

With the help of a few scraps of wood and some chains, This Old House reader Kodie Ketchbaw transformed an old door into a swinging daybed that would be just as welcome in a city apartment as on a country home's front porch. It's a daybed that we wouldn't mind spending the night on. For more reader reuse ideas, click here/
