My inner child is obsessed with indoor swings. Basically anything that hangs from the ceiling, I want it. With the mosquitoes being so bad here in Michigan, my toddler really hasn’t had time to enjoy her swing and let me tell you, she loves to swing! Momma decided to think outside the box and decided to order an indoor swing or hanging chair, whatever you want to call it.
I ordered this hanging chair from Amazon. Can I get a heck yeah for 2 day shipping?! I then stopped by our local Home Depot and picked up 10 feet of this rope here that can handle up to 695 lb of a working load limit. I wanted something strong enough that would last a long time, look cute, and be safe to hold up an indoor swing.
We installed an eye hook into a stud in the ceiling and then tied double overhang knots on either end to secure the hanging chair to the hook. My husband has an arborist background and is super handy when I need creative knots!
Now, along with Ryan’s reading nook in the other corner, she has a spot where she can relax, kick back and read a book. The swing is just low enough that she can kick her legs out and push herself around. You can also hang this swing on two hooks instead of one if you would rather have it swing back and forth. But being an indoor swing, I really just wanted it to pivot and hang in place, especially in a toddlers room!
I was actually inspired by a swing I saw at Pier One Imports. But after seeing a price tag of $120 I knew I could find something similar and get more bang for my buck. I spent just around $60 for this one and can’t even tell you the difference between the more expensive one and the one I purchased.
I’d call this a mom win. What kid wouldn’t want an indoor swing in their bedroom?!
