Crib turned Porch Daybed

I cannot tell you how happy I am to have this daybed complete. It's been over a year since I decided to do it and I don't know what took me so long.  

I followed these suggestions and sawed about 9 inches off the legs. We also added a piece of plywood under the mattress to reinforce the seat so adults could sleep sit on the daybed. Instead of making a cover for the mattress, I decided to use a crib sheet. Thank you, Target.
The daybed is in our sunroom and it is the perfect place to curl up with a book. The girls love playing on it, and I'm sure there will be a few naps on it this summer. All we need is a few more pillows.
