So what was the final cost of my swing?  The headboard was $10, the cushions were around $50, and the materials to make the swing were close to $50.  So, I got my back porch swing for $110.   What a deal!

Once my swing was done, I was in the mood to decorate!

I wanted something different… of course!

I decided to make a garland to go around the large oak tree that comes up out of the center of our patio.

I grabbed four mason jars…

…and painted them with different colors of chalk paint that matched the colors of the swing.  Next, I grabbed some antique light bulbs and tied on some little burlap flowers to the top.
