Mum uses B&M egg chairs & stick-on flowers to transform her girls’ swing set into ‘something more cosy’
A MUM has turned her kids' old swing set into something a little more suitable for her now 1q and nine-year-old daughters, and people are absolutely blown away by the stunning results.
Carina Bennett, 33, from Rowley Regis spotted some egg chairs from B&M which she thought were perfect for the new look and used them to create a more grown up and "cosy" design.
The old set of swings had a bright blue metal frame and standard plastic seats, typical of any ordinary swing set.
But now, the girls have a stunning grey and pink coloured set which is draped with pretty flowers – and has huge egg chairs to relax in.
The whole thing was super cheap to do too with the swing chairs costing just £30 each from B&M
Carina also used six cans of spray paint which she got from Poundland and used a bargain flower garland from Amazon which she wrapped around the frame.
Carina told Fabulous: "I was going to throw it away so decided to upcycle it and make something abit more cosy and grown up for my 11 and 9 years old.
"I decided to use my annual leave wisely – I started on Tuesday and had it finished Wednesday."
Unsurprisingly, her daughters are obsessed with their new set of swings, with Carina admitting: "My girls love it and feel much more grown up. We called it a cosy swing where they can read and chill out."
The crafty mum shared before and after snaps on Facebook where it quickly garnered over 8,000 likes and comments.
"Wow, didn’t expect all the love," she wrote, admitting she was "feeling pretty chuffed" with the new look.
Gushing over the new look, one person wrote: "Oh wow that's so pretty well done you've done a great job ."
"Thank you for this, was just about to sell my girls swing. But think I will keep it now," another admitted.
Hundreds more used word such as "amazing," "stunning" and "genius" to express their thoughts.
While dozens more tagged friends and family to suggest they give it a go themselves.
