Tuesday’s Tips: Turning Twin Beds into Day Beds…

I’ve seen once on tv where they took a twin bed, pushed it against the wall horizontally and added pillows to the back thus creating a day bed for a small room that doubled as an office/guest space. I thought the idea was brilliant seeing as though one wouldn’t need to purchase new furniture if they already had a smaller bed on deck. I found the above picture from www.myhomeideas.com. They too used a twin bed to convert into a day bed. They also created additional storage by lifting the bed on top of cinder blocks gift wrapped in metallic vinyl fabric and plywood (also wrapped in vinyl) from a home improvement store. They used a total of 3 yards and this was such a clever way to add bins, baskets and storage underneath. Perfect for a small room without ample closet space.

Giant pillows stuff underneath this spray painted coffee table also creates extra seating…

What a clever way to have storage and a home office in one! I’ve done a post before on converting closets into desk areas Here. But I never thought of using a bookshelf for it. This would work too (mainly for laptop users). A great way to repurpose something meant for a whole different intention. It’ll work even better if some of the items on the bottom shelf were removed for a foot rest…

Here’s the budget friendly finished product of a room makeover. Office space, bed/couch, even a little seat for eating. I love the pillows and purple/silver combo.

Lovely colors in the wall art & perfect pillows to match…


I’d love to lounge on this daybed and watch a thunderstorm or read a book. It’s such a cozy nook with plush fabric selections. Built in drawers under for storage and a chandelier for glam purposes.

A cool reading area for a kid’s room. This was created by pairing two twin beds together. I hope this post was some sort of inspiration for you.
