One of my daughter-in-laws asked if I could build a child swing seat for their first child. And as any self respecting LJ would say, I said “sure” I can. (Never built one before, but I’ve seen ‘em here and there.)

I was allowed to paint it in the colors of my choice. So why not green and yellow? Anyways, it’s done and they’ll see it this Easter.

Thanks all for the kind comments. His Dad owns a John Deere so I thought it would be appropriate. The little guy is only 6 months old so he should fit in the swing seat for a couple of years.

Well done! I’m sure the kiddo/s will enjoy that for many years. Nice touch to even paint the chains in John Deere yellow and green.
