My husband built our daybed and I upholstered it. I made 3 large pillows and the mattress was covered by sewing the fabric as if it were a fitted sheet. This way it can easily be removed for cleaning or swapped out for a regular sheet if our daughter needs to sleep here. We cut the legs off an old table for the front legs of the daybed. We love reading on it and we are so pleaded with how it came out.
