DIY Porch Swing

I have been wanting to make a DIY porch swing that will fit a crib mattress for our front porch since we moved in. I finally finished it and it was easier than I expected. Since I used plans from Plank and Pillow it took me about 3 hours to build.

6- Thread the jute rope through the U brackets and then up through the rings and back down again. Tighten the U brackets to hold the rope in place. Then tie a knot in the rope for more stability. I zip tied my knots as well so they won’t loosen.
