Doing It Yourself isn’t always the easiest or cheapest option, but odds are you won’t find anything more satisfying than finishing a DIY project with your own two hands. Each week, we’re going to showcase one cool DIY project tutorial from around the web.
In all honesty, the thought of making a hammock would have never even crossed our minds if we didn’t come across Meg Kemner’s DIY Two-Tone Sail Rope Hammock tutorial on Design Milk (Meg’s also responsible for the images). We’ve thought about busting out the masonry bits to mount a hammock on the balcony or in the parking lot because, well, Summer, but we were just going to pick one up from the local big orange box. With enough Boy (or Girl!) Scouts knot knowledge, a whole lot of rope, some wood, tools and time, you can make your own that’s way cooler than any you’d find in a local retailer. Your siesta awaits.
