If you love spending time outdoors even when it rains, you can make this diy covered swing bed and enjoy. I love this idea because I love to sit outside and watch it rain. This idea could be done on a regular wood swing but the swing bed would be really nice to read on or to just pass some relaxing time swaying slowly while listening to the birds and just being one with nature. I love the tin roof because you just know the rain would sound so nice dropping on that tin.
With the space of the swing bed you could even sit and crochet or knit and have space for your yarn and supply bag. This tutorial is really about the frame, support and roof system because the bed was ordered from a fellow that makes them. There is a link provided with the tutorial if you wanted to look into ordering one. You could also make your own with this pattern or this one made from pallets.
There are many different diy swing projects online. Whether you go for a bed swing or just a wooden swing if you put a roof over it you will get much more use from it that you would otherwise. No worries if it is gently raining or if the sun is shining on it you can still enjoy thanks to that tin roof. You can see the tutorial for this support and roof on Mobile Bay Mag.
