We've been staring at this photo for the past ten minutes or so, trying to figure out how exactly this aft deck transforms from a double bed to a dining area. It looks like the "bed frame" is actually a low table, with a futon mattress on top...? An interesting solution...

But this has inspired us to look at vintage coffee tables a different way: instead of chucking it, wouldn't it be interesting to use some of its elements to create a new bed frame? Take something like this table for example: the painted table top could be repurposed as a part of the headboard; and the legs reinforced to support a mattress and frame.
We could be crazy. After all, it is Friday.
