Back-to-school season can engender conflicting feelings once you’re not actually in school anymore. On one hand, there’s the smug satisfaction of never having to do homework or get picked last for dodgeball again; on the other, there’s the nostalgia of shopping for fresh notebooks and running around at recess. If you’re feeling more of the latter, why not bring the playground to you? Try out one of these indoor swing tutorials to include a sense of whimsy in your home. Just remember: Safety first when you’re hanging a piece of furniture from the ceiling!

Hammock time

Sure, a hammock is at its best between two trees. But put this sweet hammock chair from Rachel at A Beautiful Mess next to a window and it will come close to feeling like summer all year.

Nautical notes

Yearning for a beach vacay? Turn a standard pallet into a seaside-inspired swing with this tutorial from Mandi at Tidbits from the Tremaynes

Tasseled and bright

Natalie at Design Love Fest designed this vibrant beauty for the outdoors, inspired by the swing in her grandparents’ yard. But you can totally hang it inside instead to add some color and fun to your life year-round.

Hang out

If you prefer your swinging to come complete with a backrest, try out this tutorial from Jennifer at The Chronicles of Home. Add on as many blankets as you want to keep it cozy through the winter.

Why knot?

Don’t tie yourself in knots. Tie yourself a chair instead, like Savannah at Classy Clutter did. (Just note that she says this DIY takes a while.)
