Summer is just a few weeks away and we can't help but think about outdoor sleeping arrangements. Our favorite option: a cozy canvas hammock. Here's a utilitarian example that we love for outdoor lounging. It's available for sale—or you can whip out the sewing machine and make your own from a painter's drop cloth and some other hardware store parts. Above: The Le Beanock Hammock in white canvas is $641.48. Above: Make your own hammock using a large  20-by-20-Foot Canvas Drop Cloth ; $149.55 from Gemplers. Consider doubling up on the canvas for your hammock by splitting the large drop cloth in half, or sewing two smaller pieces together. Above: Source four Stainless Steel Grommets with Washers in a 3/8" size; $11.98 for 24 from My Tarp. Above: The 3/8" Zinc-Plated Steel Chain is $94.97 for a box of 30 feet from Home Depot. Above: The Nite Ize Stainless Steel S-Biner is $2.94 from Home Depot. For more DIY hammock inspiration, see  Swing from the Trees  on Gardenista. Go to DIY to peruse all our latest projects.
