How to make a Pallet Swing - SuzelleDIY

{Video} How to Make a Pallet Swing!

Did you know that this coming Sunday, the 9th of October, is South Africa’s very first official “Garden Day“? No? Well, neither did I.

Luckily, our gal SuzelleDIY brought this fact to my attention while I perusing her latest DIY videos. In celebration of Garden Day, Suzelle show us how to make a fun garden swing out of old wooden pallets.

Now to be honest, I have had my fill of pallet-related DIYs and furniture designs. The whole pallet idea was fun and unusual when it first started trending a good few years ago. It also played right into the extremely popular Industrial design style which further boosted the pallet fad’s popularity. Like with most quirky fads, everyone jumped on the pallet DIY bandwagon. My Pinterest feed was filled with hundreds of pallet furniture and decor ideas. Some were brilliant and beautiful, but unfortunately most were tacky and unrefined. I soon grew tired of the fad.

That being said, I can still appreciate a clever pallet DIY idea – especially if its use is appropriate to the space and home style, and if it is refined and well thought through. Suzelle’s Pallet Swing ticks all those boxes which is why I am sharing it with you today! It is a fun and playful idea for the garden or backyard and the design is uncomplicated and tasteful. The addition of pretty bunting and colourful cushions makes for a happy and inviting scene!

Sigh, wish I had a tree branch big and strong enough to accommodate such a fun swing in my garden! I can already envisage myself spending hours on it reading and sipping refreshing cocktails.

Have a happy Garden Day this Sunday guys!

P.S. Marianne – I like your leggings!
