Every summer I have told myself that I would build a DIY Outdoor Day bed! I always see them in magazines and they are so darn expensive – some of my favorites can run upwards of $4,000! Well, this summer I finally broke down and designed/built one! Spoiler alert – I LOVE IT! And, I was able to build one large enough to accommodate a twin mattress for about $200 (and that’s WITH the optional pergola top)!
