DIY Hammock Chair

Is there anything better than lounging in a hammock, reading a book, under a tree, in the middle of summer? Well sure there is! Think about it, just bring that hammock inside where it is air conditioned and bug free! You don’t have to worry about your sweaty fingers sticking to the pages or having to reapply sun screen after the sun shifts. Thanks to this post from A Beautiful Mess you won’t have to bring your hammock stand in too—you can make a hammock chair! 

Here’s what you’ll need:

3/16" stainless steel quick link (holds up to 660 lbs)
black fabric paint
paint brush

drill and 3/8" drill bit
