Make It Monday - Outdoor Napping... Yes Please!

I have an antique iron headboard that has been sitting in the backyard for quite some time. I painted it a cream color and have left it sitting in the elements in hopes that it would rust and wear naturally. That isn't happening so I think I will force the process with some good old fashioned paint remover.

Anyway, I would love to have a frame built for it and turn it into an outdoor bed. Maybe something like this...

Do you have an outdoor napping spot???? Do you want one now???

Oh my we have something else in common. I am working on one too. I will post one for you to see as soon as we finish it. I think every one should have an outdoor napping space.

I have always wanted one. When I was growing up, my grandmother had a daybed on her (enclosed) front porch. It was just the best place to lie and read and listen to the raindrops on the roof.

Those both look so cozy. I could use a little nappy right now. It's been a long day.
