I feel like this weekend calls for a few lazy days to sit around, read a book, take a nap, and just relax. And if any of those things are on your agenda this weekend, I have the perfect DIY for you. Here is a do-it-yourself way to make an outdoor bed swing in an afternoon.    

Manda form The Merry Thought whipped up a bed swing using recycled pallets, which I know is a controversial material for some, but I personally love the way this tutorial turned out.

If I made one of these, I would be in the backyard every weekend for naps and some swing time. What about you?
