Hanging outdoor bed

I made this hanging outdoor bed for our screened in porch using Ana's plans. This was one of the first things I've built, and the plans were very easy to follow. I wanted all of the outside trim to be decorative but it was much more expensive, so I settled for just the top piece. I love this web site and am about to tackle the Board and Batten project. Thanks Ana!!

I love this plan! One question, does anyone have any suggestions for how to add arms or a back to it to lean against? Or what types of arms/back would look best? I can't figure out where to put them so that the ropes/chains wouldn't rub against them.

I really like this as it is so great as a relaxation element for a tranquil space.
