Sleeping Bed

I had a tough time finding a photo of what I have in my mind. This however looks very inviting and a peaceful place to grab a magazine and dream away on a warm afternoon. I'm searching for a an old iron or wicker daybed, or porch bed that I can place in my shed. Right now I'm using the loveseat but its not working out. I'm finding that when we finally get to use the little cottage, we feel like stretching out and snuggling up. We've been enjoying movies out there at the end of the day. Baldyman is finishing up the trim painting and then when thats done, it will be doing the little brick patio in front of it. I also am going to hang lights around the top. We are at the very end of finishing it up. Where I live there arent very many antique stores or estate sales. If there are estate sales, they are outrageously priced. A twin size would be perfect. If anyone had ideas on how to locate something affordable and comfy...drop me a note. I did find one new antique dealer where our trailer is and I hope to get there this week. Its one of the cleanest, reasonably priced and neatest stores I've seen in years. She carries a ton of stuff, its all organized and its super super clean and in super condition. I'm hoping she will come across a little porch bed for my cottage!

Have a great weekend!

What a great idea to have a bed outdoors! Sometimes you can find good deals advertised in local newspapers, Craigslist and on ebay, or online in general. We bought our white leather sofa at an online furniture store and got it at a price way below store prices.

A daybed would be great! Have you thought about a futon too? Maya has good idea - I would check Craigs List. Is there an IKEA by you?

I found one years ago in an antique store, just the frame. It wasn't much money for it. (twin size)I bought a replica at a mattress store and paid 3 times that much.
Your little cottage is coming right along. So cute.
