Here’s how you can easily fix a broken swing in your backyard!

Swings tend to rust, break and look old over time. These broken swings are generally taken to professionals who charge a sum with which you can buy a new swing altogether.


Tips On How To Fix The Broken Swing

Today, we will show you how you can fix the broken swing in your backyard using polypropylene lawn furniture re-webbing, a needle and upholstery thread.

Staple the edge with a stapler to remember where you started from. It will also provide a temporary support till you finish the process.

Step 1:

Cut the worn out canvas and throw it away. Repaint the whole swing to cover any rust stains. Wait for a day for the paint to dry.

Step 2:

Begin with the process of re-webbing. Take one end of the webbing, fold it up to an inch and wrap it around the top left side of the metal frame.

Step 3:

Take the webbing and wrap it vertically around both, the back and the seat, and go back and forth all the way down the swing. A little over halfway, staple the second strip of the webbing to continue the weaving.

Step 4:

Once you’re done re-webbing the whole swing vertically, repeat the same process horizontally. Use a stapler to attach the strands. At the very end of weaving, wrap the last strand around itself and staple the end.

Step 5:

Now, remove the stapler pins with a scissor and use an upholstery thread to weave the swing.

Step 6:

Place a nice, warm cushion over the seat and your swing is good to swing.
