We are so blessed to always have friends join us each summer to swim & hang out at our pool, so we wanted to spruce up our sitting areas and treat our guests RIGHT! The cost of a new swing is about $150-$200, which didn't seem sensible since all they needed was new upholstery. I had Ben help me measure and off to the fabric store we went...not my kids' favorite place to go. I found this adorable fabric that matched my pergola curtains (like in one of my first blog entries here). I got 8.5 yards for $4.50/yard!! Woohoo!! So, I brought my sewing machine downstairs and went to work! Here are a few before & after pics! Ready to be "just-a-swangin"???
