Making it Yours (MiY)

Making it Yours 7: Window Daybed

It’s been far too long since the last Making it Yours (MiY) series! I’m back at it, this time with the Window Daybed.

MiY is all about the way a piece of furniture can see you through several rooms and several phases of your life. It’s not just about the furniture, it’s about the way furniture can fit into our lives and become something more, something versatile, even something sentimental.

Check in later today to see the daybed get its start in a bedroom for a young boy.

    Yay! I love this series! Love it! I’ve been considering this daybed for our guest bedroom/office/current room of shame. Wish they hadn’t discontinued the overlapping squares daybed (but that’s what I get for waiting so long to make the purchase!).

    Can’t wait to see where this goes!
