The only one who didn't seem to mind the chaos was our cat, who thoroughly enjoyed lounging on my netting in the sun.
I've had this old cast iron bed, which was originally a crib, for a long time, stored, and waiting to be used.
It really is my new favourite spot in the house to curl up with a book, and a coffee, and just relax, while basking in the sunlight, overlooking the yard, and watching the curtains gently blow in the breeze.
This is the view coming into the room from the deck. The daybed works nice as a couch.
We still wanted to be able to walk through to the deck. Plus, with more seating outside, it's a great extension on the room while entertaining!
You may recognize these cushions from the living room, before I redid it. I figured they could be reused in this space since they go perfectly with the decor anyway!
I didn't want to paint the bed, so I decided to go with clear lacquer instead to seal it. I made it into a daybed by taking off one of the sides.
I had a few old corbels and vintage finds lying around that I used on the shelves above the bed.
