Summer is just a few weeks away and we can’t help but think about outdoor sleeping arrangements. Our favorite option: a cozy canvas hammock.
Here’s a utilitarian example that we love for outdoor lounging. It’s available for sale–or you can whip out the sewing machine and make your own from a painter’s drop cloth and some other hardware store parts.
Above: The Le Beanock Hammock in white canvas is $641.48.
Above: Make your own hammock using a large 20-by-20-Foot Canvas Drop Cloth; $149.55 from Gemplers. Consider doubling up on the canvas for your hammock by splitting the large drop cloth in half, or sewing two smaller pieces together.
Above: Source four Stainless Steel Grommets with Washers in a 3/8″ size; $11.98 for 24 from My Tarp.
Above: The 3/8″ Zinc-Plated Steel Chain is $94.97 for a box of 30 feet from Home Depot.
