Although there are many great products at IKEA that we use in combination with our children, that doesn't mean we don't have the desire to dress a few up now and again. Take for instance this hacked skateboard swing!

The ecorre swing from IKEA is just fine in its own right at $15, but that doesn't mean that it has to be middle of the pack. Once the board was removed and a skate deck was added, this swing went from so-so to how high can you go? Awesome!

Over at NotCot they've documented the full procedure (which mainly involves changing out the seat) and there are plenty of skate deck swing photos to have you drooling. For safety reasons we must suggest that you use new decks instead of older ones as they take the most wear in the middle where they'll need to be supporting weight.
