Hello

The Goth-In-My-Pocket has just moved into a bigger cot-bed and I now have an old, battered traditional wooden drop sided cot with no future other than the tip. I cant sell or give it away as its really battered. My husband suggested using it for firewood.

I have seen online many cots turned into desks and chairs, but wondered if anyone could think of anything more interesting to do with them? Because the chair/desk ideas really would take up room that we dont have...

thanks in advance for any ideas Smiley

If it's a slat sided one, you could take the sides, put them on the wall so the slats are horizontal and hang things from them. Give it a good coat of paint and maybe the batteredness won't show so much.

Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
