Playtime: 6 Stylish Indoor Swings
When the weather isn’t cooperating, we can’t help but think about reinventing our house as an indoor play space, complete with a playground to keep our little monkeys from swinging off our clothes rack and shower bar.
These indoor swings inspire us to think outside the (sand)box.
1. While this leather-upholstered swing might be a little over the top, it’s fun to fantasize about living in a loft and being able to plunk down $800 to install this ultra-hip, modern Svvving in our living room.
2. The trouble with indoor swings is they usually accommodate just one little bum. That’s a challenge when you have more than one. Haba’s Ship’s See-Saw Swing ($269) can handle 2-3 little people, maxing out at 175-pound capacity. There’s no limit to the imaginative play.
3. Though it’s been discontinued, Ikea’s Svava swing offers inspiration for DYIers. A hula hoop and some kite fabric will get you started. And let’s face it, will be easier to replace if the dog mistakes it for a frisbee. (photo credit: wee-stories.com)
5. This Martha Stewart DIY project could run you less than $100 if you have a spare tire and some rope in your garage. The enamel paint freshens up the look and also manages to alleviate the tire-marks-on-clothes problem.
6. Haba holds court when it comes to most-coveted playroom decor, and this butterfly swing does not disappoint. While discontinued, you may find a used swing on craigslist, ebay or other kids resale sites.
