Guests will only visit if you have enough comfortable beds for them - I can't say I blame them.
In our tiny house of 500 square feet, we don't have enough room for a designated guest room, but we do have a special way of making them feel welcome; our Upcycled Day Bed.
It does double duty as a bed for guests, and as a couch for extra seating.
As an added bonus, it's actually a captains bed with three drawers for storage below the mattress.
Any kind of storage is welcome in this tiny house.
I use the drawers for storing blankets, sheets and pillow cases, both for the bed, and for the mobile massage table when my therapist shows up once a month for my treatment.
Found in the recycle center, for a great price (free) this captains bed and the little dining buffet were abused and abandoned. I've given them both a new home, with a few coats of paint, and some TLC.
One thing that pulls them together and unifies them is the curved features - although both from different eras - the bed is circa 1980, and the buffet is from the mid fifties or a bit later, they each have similar lines. Making some rustic hardware also gives them a complementary feel.
Two coats of white paint makes a big difference.
The three drawers hold bedding for the guests.
Pillows and bolsters make the day bed into a couch for extra seating, and are moved off for sleeping.
The upcycled buffet makes a headboard to lean against and provides a spot for a lamp and other articles like books and a glass of water.
