The easiest way to remake your old swing is with a shiny new set of hanging chains for it. Unless you have invested heavily (cause they are quite expensive) in a set of stainless chains, you will be replacing your hanging chains every 5-7 years. As with any metal not stainless with time it will begin to rust. Good news is replacement chains are reaitvely inexpensive (less than $25).
