Oh im so going to give one of these ideas a go once our youngest grows out of the cot! :)
Sharlene says ...
I can't decide what I like more, the desk or the flower planter - will be a few years before we stop using a cot so I'll need to remember this.
Sarah says ...
Loving the day bed!!!

I want to curl up on the day bed! Just add a few more cushions and it would be a lovely place to read books with my beautiful boy!
