A couple years ago my hubby and kids bought me one of those cool covered swings at WalMart.. you know the kind with the frame and the awning type thing over it.. anyway, the awning ripped long ago... the sun and weather finally 'killed' the cushions and the canvas that the cushions sat on.. I was sitting there looking at it yesterday and thinking.. :/ Scary huh?
What if I took the swing off.. and used the frame, which has pretty scroll work in the metal, as a type of Arbor.. I thought it might look really nice to find a stone bench to sit underneath it and plant different climbing flowers
at each of the four legs..
I don't know if I have the awning frame still.. but if I do, I thought about stringing something between the front and back beams on it.. so it would spread/climb up onto it too, creating a bit of shade.
What do you guys think?? I said this to my husband and he just looked at me like, "you have your pond, aren't you satisfied?!"
He said not a word, but I could just 'tell' what he was thinking.. :P
I even know right where I would put it.. though we will have to move the portable basketball hoop that my daughter has there..
I am excited.. tell me your thoughts!!!!
