How To Make Queen Bed More Sofa-Like?

Good Questions

Q: Due to a toddler who has developed a taste for late-night adventures, my husband and I moved our bed from the top floor to the first floor, where his bedroom is located. The only place to put our queen bed is in the front room, so we opted to toss our old couch and make the bed into a couch-slash-bed. Trouble is, we're stumped on how to do that. Buy two headboards and attach them to the ends? Pile it with cushions? What do we cover it with? Basically, we're trying to create something that reads "couch" well enough that we won't be embarrassed to have friends sit on it! Help?Sent by Kelly
