My cousin, the intrepid car booter, bought something for £25, got the seller to dismantle and pack it, asked if we'd like it as she didn't have room herself and brought it up from Yorkshire a couple of years ago. It had resigned in the garage all that time, the summers hadn't been that good so we never bothered to put it up but this year is different. I am retired now so I started pestering Mr FF as soon as the warm weather came and this week I got all the pieces out and laid them on the lawn.
I had to look at examples on the internet to try and work out how to fit it together, I don't think I'm spatially aware or maybe I'm just a bit dim. I was surprised that they are still sold and also at the price of them, anything up to £500. Can you guess what it is yet, these aren't all the components, but the metal pieces made this
Yes its a swing seat. I remember these from when I was a child, we never had one but I can recall visiting gardens that did and I always wanted one. Its very retro, the cushions are not as garish as some I remember, quite restful and very comfy
Nothing was missing, it even came with stays to stop it swinging and its own wet weather cover, such a bargain. We have it on the lawn where it catches the late evening sun, though its good at all times, a nice shady place to relax during the heat of the day and long enough for one person to stretch out. Weather permitting Mr FF and I will be swinging this weekend.
