under the sycamore

There's something kinda cool about a daybed in the kids room. Versatile - yes, aesthetically pleasing - definitely, but there's also an element of sophistication and independence for the kid in question. When I was about 10 years old I read a novel about a girl who rearranged her bedroom to make it seem more grownup; this included turning her bed into a seat to make it more like a lounge room. Of course after I read this I had to try it too. I spread a huge pink sheet over my single bed then lined the pillows up along the wall to make the bed more sofa-like. The effect was not at all like these gorgeous examples above, but rather more like an odd, lumpy, giant pink-wrapped package.
The lesson here? Help your kids realise their decorating dreams and they won't sully your house with strange creations. (This is a joke - I don't usually joke here and the Baby Space teenager some people tell me they don't know when I'm joking. Please do encourage your kids to be creative with furniture.)

  5. Oh my gosh...the first image!!! AMAZING! I have been researching iron cribs, and it seems that a lot of them can have one side taken off to convert it into a daybed like this. Sold.

  6. ha ha i bet it was a beautiful lumpy package. like when a child gives you a mud pie and you smile at their efforts and thoughts of you. ha ha just teasin! I am sure it wasn't that bad! I remember one of my friends having a day bed growing up, I was always so jealous. You can be so imaginative as a child with a day bed. It makes for an excellent boat.
