Outdoor Rooms: DIY Hanging Daybed on Sunporch

How fun is this? A kind blogging reader Dandelions and Daydreams pointed this lovely idea out to me (thank you!) and I loved it so much I wanted to share it all with you!
Such a cozy spot for a Sunday afternoon nap!

    Oh, I love this! My grandparents used to have something like this on their back porch. I remember lying there and it was just wonderful. Bring on the weekend…and a glass of lemon aide! ;)

  8. M.Kate

    I’ll chase my kids away and keep the bed all to MYSELF!! Even lock myself outside the house and keep the keys so they cant come out!! I am dreaming now :) happy weekend

  9. Beverly

    Now, that is just fun.

  10. Ann Marie

    oh my gosh, my husband would love this. he’s a big fan of sleeping outside.

  11. Diana

    Outdoor rooms are so great – this one especially!

  12. Barbara

    I’ve seen something similar done in a child’s room before. I’ve always thought it looked so cozy. Kind of a throwback to lemonade/sweet tea and porch swings, where you actually knew your neighbors

    absolutely love this idea…reminds me of my grandmother’s porch swing in South Carolina….so southern… Fay

  14. Katy

    oh my gosh…i absolutely LOVE that!!!

  15. A-M

    What a wonderful idea. Must do it! I will scheme it into my plans of our terrace. So much inspiration… so many changes to our plans… our builders are building with gritted teeth!! A-M xx

  16. Mari-Nanci

    Ohhh I love it! I want one. But … Don’t have a screened in porch even. Oh well… :-)

    Please have a lovely Midsummer Night’s Eve.

    Take Joy, as Dear Tasha said!

    The closest we could get to sleeping in the great outdoors!

  18. Lisa

    I have absolutely no place for this, but I love it!!

  19. mara

    Yet another reason I think you are a genius.

  20. Joni Webb

    aren’t they just the cutest kids!!!

  21. megan duerksen

    oh my kids would love this on our porch.
    or even…you could hang something like this from a tree…like a giant swing.
    a family swing.

    i will keep this in mind.

    have a great weekend! can’t wait to see the beach house.
    8 weeks?
    that went quick.

  22. Laura Ingalls Gunn

    I showed this to my 19 year old daughter and now she’s like it in her bedroom.
    Cute idea~!

  23. suzy

    That so rocks! xo, suzy

  24. Down Pillow

    That looks so cool – would make me totally nervous though :-)

  25. pam

    I could just see the kids swing in the swing, I know my kids would have a blast, but could be scary.

  26. Sonya Holley

    I love this. We are going to add this to our screened in back porch. Got a question. Do you know where to purchase large rolls of material for outdoor porches to make curtains. Can’t seem to find a site. Material that will resist fading and mildew.
    Thanks Sonya in Tuscaloosa Alabama
