I attached a shower curtain to the left over frame for shade.......
Then I placed 2 wicker lounges in the area where the wicker swing used to hang. Now instead of swinging.....H & I can lay in our lounges and spend the afteroon drinking iced tea and enjoying the summer.
The canvass cover that originally came on the swing wore out many years ago. This is how H fixed the left over canapy to hold a different kind of cover.
Chicken wire is how he fixed it!
H attached chicken wire to the empty frame with hose clamps and that enabled me to cover the frame with a light weight sheet or other fabric without it falling between the bars.
I attached my shower curtain to the frame by threading fabric thru the holes that the shower curtain rings would normally go Then I just tied the curtain to the frame.
Here's another angle showing how I attached the shower curtain to the frame......and also how the hose clamps hold the chicken wire on.
If it's really sunny I let the shower curtain loose on the back for more shade. Today I chose to tie the back of the shower curtain together and attach it to the back of the frame.
Here's another angle showing how I tied the shower curtain the frame.
I'm loving the new look....although I will miss the swing.
