We have an ongoing effort to make everything everything in our little house do two things. I fell in love with this daybed thingy from Pottery Barn which costs about $1200 or so. And I wanted 2 of them, end to end along the living room wall. Not in the budget. Se we designed our own.
I sketched it out and made a cut list. Tyee did all the cutting yesterday and I started painting today. We'll see how it all comes together!
This is what we're using for a couch right now.
