How To DIY an Easy Hanging Daybed

How To DIY an Easy Hanging Daybed

On the few warm(ish) days we've had so far in Seattle this spring, I've taken to lounging outside on a cheap beach chaise. I love relaxing in the shade, staring up at our giant fir tree with the scent of freshly cut grass enveloping me. I would love it a million times more if I had a wonderful daybed like this, though. The best part? It's pretty easy to make.

The twin-size daybed, created by DIY maven Ana White and featured at HGTV, really doesn't require much more than wood planks, rope and a mattress (you could also use camping foam). I'm not particularly skilled with power tools, but even I could handle this, especially since many hardware stores offer complimentary cuts with a lumber purchase (because summer is more fun with ten fingers!).

The only caveat is that you have to have somewhere to hang it, which I don't, so for now I'll just daydream on. But someday, my shady naps will be taken in style.
