Enjoy winds in the summer with hanging outdoor porch bed. They are an ideal resting place for sleepovers for the kids, nap afternoon or nights when the house does not seem to have any air. This vintage-inspired hanging bed is a recycled bed spring and is hung as a swing. A great place to crawl and read a good book is this simple project Make sure to get back memories of the summer in Grandma’s house. Drill straight down through the lower frame of the spring spring, at all corners, with a 3/8 inch cemented carbide drill. Put an eye bolt through the drilled holes and secure with a nut. The nut is on the underside of the frame and the eye is sitting on top.
Look for the support rules on your porch ceiling. This is very important to ensure the safety of the hanging outdoor porch bed. They are usually easy to find. Look for seams in your roof and a pattern of nail heads, screws or recesses. Measure the width and length of your bed feathers. Use these dimensions to mark the four corners of the ceiling. When the preliminary marks are made, move them over the nearest roof rails. Use a little less than your 5/16-inch turn nuts drill holes in both brands. This will make it easier for the bolts to screwed into place and also prevent the partition of the wood roof. Screw the turning hooks into the guide holes.
Measure from swinging hook to desired height down the bed. Place an “S” hook in each eye bolt on the bed. Attach one end of a chain into an “S” hook and the other end in the swinging hook over it, in the ceiling. Repeat for the remaining three corners. Your bed is now hanging. Place a matching skirt size outdoor porch bed or a cover that matches your bedding, on the feathers. The bed skirt comes camouflage bed springs, as well as decorate your veranda. Carefully put a mattress over the bed skirt without moving it and dress the bed with sheets, blankets and quilts. Fill the bed with piles of pillows for daytime and nightly lounge.
You may need an assistant to hold your springs while attaching the chain and hanging it. If none exists, place a chair in each corner and support the bed springs in the seats. If you’re outdoor porch bed springs have rusted on them, spray with a clear acrylic sealant before mounting the hanging bed. To prevent rust from moving to your beds.
