This weekend my husband and I got an urge to build something.  We decided to make a daybed to put in a corner of our living room that wasn’t getting much use.  We drew up the plans, quickly headed out to Lowe’s, bought some 2 x 4’s, brackets, nuts and bolts and came home and got started.  $50 later we had built my new favorite place in our house!

I made the mattress cover using MADE’s fitted sheet tutorial.  I just adjusted the size for a twin mattress rather than crib sheet.  I still need to make more pillows, but I’m having a hard time finding patterns that match well with that lovely Joel Dewberry print on the curtain.  Any suggestions?

Here’s how it looks in the corner of our living room.  It’s such a great use of space!  Perfect for curling up with a good book, or using as extra seating or sleeping arrangements when we have guests over.

My husband created up the artwork and I just love it!  I think it’s perfect for the space and the colors really work nicely with the fun lighting and fabrics.

Ok, back to lazy lounging on the daybed!!
