Treated pine is the most economical material for making swing beds. That makes treated pine swing beds the most affordable and at the same time the most versatile. While pine is soft and vulnerable to weather, mildew, splintering and warping, but once it is pressure and chemically treated, pine becomes much more resistant. A good quality paint also helps, and treated pine swing beds come in some really beautiful colors. You can also choose one of many lovely trendy stains or purchase your treated pine swing bed untreated and do it yourself. There are many styles to choose from and whether you will go for a more modern, with industrial style metal frame, sleek contemporary model with thin slats or a traditional wide slats model, you will find a perfect swing bed for your porch. Many models come fully assembled if you are not comfortable putting your swing bed together once it arrives. They come in a few sizes – crib, full, twin or queen. The size will depend on the size of your porch or your plans for using your swing bed. If you plan on sleeping in it, larger size will provide you with more comfort. You might want to choose a nice weather-resistant mattress and pillows to complete the look and add to the comfort.
