For those who are unaware, we’ve bought ourselves a foreclosure house (a.k.a. ‘a project’) + have big plans to re-do.
We’ll be down-sizing, so I shall attempt to create a spare bedroom/sewing studio combo. Good luck with that — my sewing room looks like a tornado blew through it. Yikes.
Anyway, this means thatI have spent the entire a.m., online shopping for daybeds — which means I now know that 80% of all daybeds look something like this:
I like to call these the ’10-year-old boy’ daybed collection. Since I dress like a 10-year-old boy, this might not be a stretch.
But I digress. Next up, here we have a few variations on the daybed that I kind of liked:
I’m on the fence, re: this one: It’s wacky + vintage-looking, which is kind of what I’m all about. I dunno.
My favorite, thus far, would be this plain Jane platform-style daybed:
Now, here’s where it gets good. Pottery Barn has the coolest upholstered mattress for daybeds. There’s my PB love kicking in!
My fabric choices are this black ticking stripe or a gold-tan solid called honey. Nobody loves the ticking stripe more than I do! I prefer navy (of course), but maybe I could embrace the black, instead. Either way might be wrong, because we’ll have issues with black dog hair. See below:
Since the dogs aren’t going anywhere, I might see if I can get a similar mattress custom-made by an upholsterer — something a tad more black dog hair friendly. Do I hear something in a medium-to-dark gray? Denim? Stay tuned!
