There is nothing better than a room that attracts guests to relax and feel at home. To make an inviting room, install a king size daybed that visitors can use during the day to sit and watch TV, and then creep in at night for a restful sleep. Here is a simple plan for renovating a double wooden bed frame for a daybed / guest bed that promises a five star rating.
If the headboard is longer than the footplate (as the headboards are usually), use a saw to cut the legs of the end face down so that the headboard and footboard are of the same height. Use a drill to create new holes in the gable where it will be attached to the king size daybed frame. Gently sand the end, footsteps and bed (if they are made of wood) and dust off the residue. Pay particular attention to grinding down rough edges where the headboard was cut.
Apply two layers of paint to each part. Black or white color is both good choices for a gender neutral room. Use two layers of primer before painting if the finished product will be a white or cream finish. Allow one to two hours for the paint to dry between coats and before handling. Put back the headboard and footboard to the bed frame. Choose simple colors and fabrics to dress the king size daybed. Buy a comforter in a neutral, soothing color like cream, brown or blue. Choose four coordinating king-size cushion shams, a handful of square throw pillows and a prop up pillow.
