Mercedes Corbell Design + Architecture
I used a hollow core door from the lumber yard, cut to the length. 36" wide door is nice- can fit "stuff" at the back and still have space for laptop etc at the front. But even 24" wide door would work. You can order the door with no door hole, but I had extra ones bored- use for feeding cords through. Order it "primed" (painted with a coat of primer) and then you can paint it. This one was painted with a roller after it was installed. All very inexpensive and easy. Good luck!

Where do you get the day bed ?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lawrence Karol added this to Expert Talk: Dreaming of a Daybed
Pick a pattern. This daybed was selected for its patterned motif and cozy enclosure."The room's saturated turquoise-blue color is a surprisingly relaxing backdrop for a space designed for lounging, listening to music, visiting with friends, reading or just taking a nap," says designer Mercedes Corbell. Daybed: West Elm
