Spotted at Babylonstoren in South Africa: A simple tire swing painted green adds a citrusy dash of color to the garden.

Above: To create your own tire swing, consult the step-by-step instructions at My Mommy's Place or WikiHow.

Above: Consider using low-VOC Benjamin Moore Kiwi 544 Aura paint on a well-cleaned tire.

Above: Another option: the Leaf Green Loll Swing, made from recycled plastic; $250 at Design Within Reach.

N.B.: This is an update of a post originally published June 8, 2012.
