One of the hardest things about living in a constant project is taking a break – so I have been looking for a well priced lounging option that would encourage us to hang out in our back yard. Well hammocks.com had a great sale on these steel hammock stand kits (basically the two brackets cost 19.00 – the hammocks and pressure treated 4×4’s not included – but still it was an amazing deal (they seem to not be offering them anymore unfortunately). My sister’s boyfriend and our friend Maneesh (pictured) helped us put them together just in time for our weekend barbecue. The steel parts were originally a putty brown but we sprayed them black and I think the effect is pretty sharp. And seriously they are SOO comfortable!
