I love porch swings. They are beautiful yet simple, comfortable yet small enough, and swinging is an extremely relaxing thing to do. Most readymade swings cost a lot and I would love to make them on my own instead. The experience and the effort put in are rewarding. So, here are thirty porch swing ideas for me and you that we can most definitely do, all by ourselves.
White always stands out and goes with almost anything. This particular porch swing has a porcelain hue to it which is striking to look at. Cleverly using white rope for it only adds to the appeal. Contrasting the all white subtly are yellow and green pillows, striated and vibrant.

This swing has a really simple yet bold design. I especially love the arms. They look robust and imposing yet very aesthetically pleasing. The backrest, on the other hand, is a little too low and might be deemed inconvenient by some. But, if you’re someone who doesn’t have a problem with it, then this will be a lovely addition to your porch.
I love the color of this swing. It perfectly complements the abundance of white in its environment. A very sailor like color scheme, I believe. It is also quite simplistic in its design and is something you can make on your own very easily.
I want this swing on my porch. It is beautiful in every way possible. I love the curve at the lower end of the seating area and the shape of the arm rests. I like the empty spaces on them and the heart on the backrest. It is neat and looks very aesthetically pleasing. Even though it is traditional, it has a few modern elements that blend well with the other style.
This neat little porch swing has a lovely backrest and armrests, carved in a more old-fashioned way. It feels right at home in your backyard. It is a lovely option to sit and swing on during the evening and enjoy the mild breeze.
I love pallets. I love making things out of them and the one thing they are most useful for is the porch swing. The great thing about pallets is that they are extremely cheap to buy, which is why making a porch swing out of pallets is as cheap as $30.
