Repurposing old furniture has become more and more popular because it’s a nice way of recycling and a cheaper and doable way to own a new functional piece of furniture. If you have an old trampoline that you are wondering what to do with it, here’s a brilliant idea for you to turn it into a jumbo swinging bed.

All you need for turning this project into reality is:

  • A trampoline
  • Strong rope or wire
  • A big piece of white sheet
  • Long white curtains


The trampoline frame has been covered in soft padding and the whole trampoline mat is covered with a sheet. The frame is suspended from the ceiling by strong rope to make a large suspended swinging bed or relaxation area. In our experience some extra strenghtening may be required to the trampoline frame to keep it perfectly flat when suspended in this way.   We would suggest if you want to try this yourself do some tests before you start to cover the frame in padding.  Rather than tie the suspension ropes to the frame try passing them underneath the trampoline mat and up the opposite side.   This has the added benefit that it will provide more support to the centre of the trampoline mat and prevent it sagging in the middle.  Also, you will need to ensure the suspension ropes are strong enough to carry the greatest potential load and of course take great care to make sure the ceiling beams are capable of supporting the weight.
Enjoy and Relax!!!
