In some homes, it can be a struggle to find space for storage, work, entertaining, and rest. Especially if you have guests come over, it can be difficult finding a place for everyone to sleep. That’s where daybeds come in. They can function as a comfy couch during the day, and instantly become a bed once the sun goes down!
Whether you’re looking for a cozy spot to curl up with a book or a relaxing corner for a combination guest bedroom/office, it’s not too tough to put together a DIY daybed. You can even make one out of plywood on the cheap. Even if you’re not a master carpenter, a simple plywood daybed is a breeze to put together, and it can fit in any unused corner in your home! If you have a twin mattress set at your disposal, you can easily convert it into a daybed by changing its orientation and adding legs. All you’ll need is a set of wooden legs to screw into the bottom of your box spring! If you want to create a spot to snooze out on the patio, a shipping pallet daybed is a great – and simple – way to create one. Check out tutorials for these and more relaxing daybeds below!
