hi
in january i am going to be moving into a dorm room. i went and checked it out and it is really tiny. it comes with a bed and i was wondering if there was a way to create a day bed look from an ordinary bed? i was thinking of making tons of pillows and putting them in the middle of the bed. what about the ends of the bed? i really want to make the zipper pillow i seen on craftster but i am need of some more ideas for pillows and well any other dorm room ideas any one has. also how should i go about making a floor pillow. if anyone has any advice for me im all ears. my theme for the room is going to be romantic , girly, my conforter is pink and white roses. so far i have one little pink pillow and matching pillow cases to my bedspread. all right thats all for now. i hope someone out there can inspire me.

so i did some research and found out that bolster pillows can make a normal bed look like a day bed. now im wondering if anyone has an idea of how to make these.

I don't have any ideas, but thanks for the ideas! I'm trying to make my room look more hangout-y and less bedroom-y and I've been going for the daybed look by wrapping my blankets into bolster pillows but it's just not working  Shocked So thanks!
