This copper and leather swing has become the most popular seat in the living room since it’s been up. It’s also such an aesthetically pleasing addition to the space; made from my favorite materials white leather and shiny pink copper, it works perfectly with the rest of my living room. This piece is actually incredibly easy to make and the epitome of my new summer credo “don’t forget to play.”

1/ Take measurements. Cut out a rectangle out of the leather that measures approximately 23cm x 50cm. This can obviously be changed depending on personal size preference.

2/ Depending on how thick your tubes are, create a hem on both ends of your leather for the tubes to go through. Don’t leave any extra space but make them exactly the same width, this way the tubes will stay in place tightly. I added a double hem to mine while sewing with the polyester thread to reinforce the swing.

3/ Put the tubes through both the hems, and put the rope through the tubes.
// I teamed up with Urban outfitters for a three-part blog collaboration, this copper-leather home DIY was one of the posts I made for their website. But we also chatted about my sources of inspiration, daily routine and how I grew up in this interview.
