Daybed Plans

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! If you saw my last post about plans for my daughter’s room, then you know that we are building a daybed.  This is the first time we’ve ever built a bed, so we’re excited and a little nervous at the same time.  But, I’m confident we can do this project, and that it will turn out great.

I scoured the internet looking for daybed plans that would meet our needs, and while I found a few that were close, none of them would work as-is.  I soon realized that I was going to need to modify any plans I found online.

I started my online search where I always like to look for furniture plans…Ana White. I liked the simplicity of the Hailey Storage Daybed, but I needed the back and sides to be all the same height, and I wanted to fit a trundle underneath.

The other daybed plans I found were for the Daybed with Storage Trundle Drawers. These plans accommodated a trundle underneath, but I needed the sides and back to be taller.

So, I combined the two plans and came up with my very own hybrid creation. Here is a SketchUp rendering of my daybed plans.  I’m brand new to SketchUp, so it’s not a perfect representation, but at least it gives you an idea of what the bed will look like in the end.

I’ll share our materials list and instructions in a future post.  In the meantime, you can follow along with our progress here on Welsh Design Studio and on Instagram.
