    Oh, I love this! My grandparents used to have something like this on their back porch. I remember lying there and it was just wonderful. Bring on the weekend…and a glass of lemon aide! ;)

    I’ve seen something similar done in a child’s room before. I’ve always thought it looked so cozy. Kind of a throwback to lemonade/sweet tea and porch swings, where you actually knew your neighbors

    Please have a lovely Midsummer Night’s Eve.

    Take Joy, as Dear Tasha said!

    oh my kids would love this on our porch.
    or even…you could hang something like this from a tree…like a giant swing.
    a family swing.

    hmmm….
    i will keep this in mind.

    have a great weekend! can’t wait to see the beach house.

    I could just see the kids swing in the swing, I know my kids would have a blast, but could be scary.

    I love this. We are going to add this to our screened in back porch. Got a question. Do you know where to purchase large rolls of material for outdoor porches to make curtains. Can’t seem to find a site. Material that will resist fading and mildew.
    Thanks Sonya in Tuscaloosa Alabama
