    I've been reading about the turtledog stand and noticed that my kids old swing looked familiarůso I rushed out on the first sunny day and perfect fit.

    Great repurposing. I had looked at my granddaughter's swing set but it was still in use. Then got my aunts lawn swing frame and am using it every night.

    Looks good!! A little elbow grease, some paint, maybe a couple mods to it, and you'll be styling.

    I really like that stand Olddog!! It looks like it was meant for hanging. It's very easy on the eyes(compared to some of the stands I've seen)

    What mods do you suggest? And yes I agree mine is NOT easy on the eyes. That's why I keep my eyes closed in my hammock. Lol.

    I would definitely paint it(maybe green or brown or both!). It looks better than most swing sets(when I said that to Olddog, I didn't mean that yours in particular looked bad). As far as mods... I'd think I might try rigging some shelves on the ends(for gear) with home made giant Grizz Beaks to cover them.

    Shelves and a Bigger tarp would almost make it a vacation home. Works for me. No prob. On the comment. Life's good.
