A DIY Upholstered Floor Bed

Green Eyed Monster

It was time for Sunny to graduate to a "big girl bed" and her parents went all out - not with cash, but with work and ingenuity - to make her a fabric-covered floor bed.Ashley and James started with an Ikea mattress and created this colorful beauty with basic materials (wood, hinges, batting, fabric). They break the project down for you with a photo tutorial on the Green Eyed Monster blog and estimate they spent about $65 (minus the mattress and found wood).

Clearly, Sunny loves it and so do we!
