Just over 3 years ago we bought a daybed for our lounge as my Mum was visiting us from Spain. She has stayed on it a few times now as have various friends. But in recent months it seems to have become a dumping ground for bits and pieces we do not know what to do with.
There are towels and bedlinen on it as when our new boiler was fitted the removed our airing cupboard shelves where they were kept. My colouring and crafting things and a few magazines and my Hubby’s Warhammer kits have also ended up there.
As you can see it was quite a mess. I decided that it was time to turn it back into a daybed, a place where I can sit and read, colour and blog.
I managed to clear out some of the things that were underneath the bed and fit most of my crafting things and big colouring boxes under there. That was already a big chunk cleared off.
I then set about finding empty and half empty drawers around the house for me to put the linen and towels in. I was actually amazed at the amount of empty drawers we had and am now utilising that space.
There was an old magazine rack under there as well. I cleaned it up and now have a lovely holder for my colouring books and some of my pens too.
