DayBedG

What’s a better way to unwind during the weekend than to rest on a beautiful and comfortable outdoor space in your home? This project will give you a great place to read, relax and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine.

A daybed can be used as a space for an outdoor reading room or sitting room. Over-sized cushions along the back can transform the daybed into cozy seating, too. And if you have space on your deck that isn’t quite an alcove or an entryway, a daybed can turn it into comfortable nook.

You’ll definitely enjoy spending more time outdoors than in your bedroom when you have a daybed like this on your porch or deck.

DIY Day Bed - Cushion Cover

This is one DIY bed that’s easy and fast to build! It’s also very easy to adjust the dimensions to fit your available outdoor space. The owner-builder of this project even shows you how to cut and shape the foam base!

Need a movable day bed for your outdoor living area? Simply attach locking wheel casters and you’re good to go! If you prefer this to be a permanent fixture you could even build some storage into it.

And to make it complete, why not add a small table for refreshments and snacks?

Could you use a daybed in your outdoor living area?
