Small Day bed

My niece is here for the summer! We needed a guest bed fast, that didn't take up an entire room! She chose this day bed!

Her bed is in the computer room, so there isn't enough room for a twin size bed. I modified the plans to fit a standard crib mattress. Now, when she isn't using the day bed, it doubles as a lounging spot to read. It is soooo cute!

For the storage baskets, I cut shipping boxes to size and mod podged fabric to them, and added some cute little knobs.
