So last week I told you about the changes I'm making to my craft room to accomodate my new daybed, and yesterday I mentioned a little more. Now, I'm ready to show you a close-up of where my daybed has been placed. There is definitely still work to be done on the room, but I'm pleased with the progress so far!
First, I definitely decided to put the daybed under the window at the end of the room, instead of along the wall just inside the door. I also decided to slide the bookshelf down into the spot I'd initially picked out for the daybed. I'm not sure what should go into the place where it was, but I'm sure something will find its way there. Here is the view from my desk (please ignore the mess on the desk--I'm not ready to deal with that, yet):
It's almost funny to me that I'd never considered this layout, since I love how symmetrical and orderly it is now. You can't tell, but there is a space between the desk and the bed so you can walk through. One of the things I love about my desk is how you could walk around it (this is more useful when I'm using it as a craft table...not so much when I use it as a catchall), so I'm glad that the daybed actually makes use of that space, too.
I plan, someday, to recover the daybed, but since it is an upholstered mattress rather than just a covered cushion, I think it will be some time before I am crazy enough to take on that project (or smart enough to hire it out). In the meantime, the soft gold fabric works for me.
