Trampolines are fun, no matter your age or athletic inclination. But what to do when you’ve got a wrecked trampoline on your hands? Here’s an excellent adaptive reuse idea: turn your broken trampoline into a circular swing bed! This project will require some skill and brawn to pull it off. A tripod frame can be built to support the trampoline bed or attach it to a good strong beam or ceiling. Just add some soft cushy pillows, bumper pads and mosquito netting…you won’t see the kids for hours.

We’ve seen various examples of high-end, designer loungers that are hung from ceilings or tree branches. If you love the look and would like to make a version of your own, it could be as simple as converting one that you have already or finding one second-hand.

UK-based Atlantic Trampolines explains how to recycle the undamaged trampoline parts on their website, where the idea is to make use of the trampoline frame ring, the trampoline bounce mat and springs. 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 a strong rope to make a large swinging bed or relaxation area.
