DIY Project from Sweet Paul: Easy Hanging Bench

September 1, 2010 | By | Comments (0)

My apartment has a roof deck that we share with our neighbors in the building, and while there are some assorted chairs and tables out there, they aren’t really comfortable enough to spend a lot of time in them. Essentially I just want something that’s comfortable enough that I can spend some time in it reading.

 

We do have a tree that hangs over the deck, so for a while I considered a hammock, but I came across this DIY project on Sweet Paul’s blog, and it might just be my Labor Day weekend project.

It looks easy enough. The bench shown is actually an IKEA bench minus the legs. Although, I couldn’t find the exact bench on the website. All it would take is the bench, some rope and  a few tools, and you’re in business.

 

It just looks so cozy and serene. What do you think? Would you rather have this hanging bench or a hammock in your back yard?
