If you're low on cash for furniture, or just want to try something unique, make a daybed out of shipping pallets. You may spot some on the street, but you can also ask a local warehouse if they have any to offer or sell cheaply. Paint or spray paint a pair of them to match a cushion, and then stack them. You can either order a piece of custom foam to fit (try FoamOrder), or use a few small floor cushions or one long one as a makeshift mattress. I love how this one was painted white to blend in with the wainscoting. What do you think?
