Id like to take a twin size mattress I have and make a
daybed out of it in my loft style apartment (read
small) so as to provide sitting space and spare bed for
However daybed frames are outrageously priced it seems!
Anyway to make a daybed frame?
Also, does anyone out there own a daybed and how well
does it work as per above?
Know anybody that sews? Buy some STIFF foam slabs, and make a thick
wedge-shaped cushion to sit on top of the bed the long way, to serve as
a backrest. Cover it in fabric, and make a throw for the bed itself out
of the same fabric. If you want to pretty things up, build a tall box
frame to hold some of those flat storage boxes underneath, and create a
spot to stash the bed pillows and such during the day. I saw multiple
articles detailing all this decades ago in the DIY magazines, to put in
a den so it could do double-duty as a guest room. If you don't look too
hard, it sort of looks like a couch when company is over.
And I forgot....by the time you spend money for extra pillows, frame,
you can probably buy either a low-price chair or loveseat that convert
to bed, or a futon that converts. I would ck. garage sales and goodwill.
