How to disguise a hospital bed

My Mother-in-Law passed away, and we are keeping the hospital bed. I'd like some ideas to disguise the bed to make it appear to be a twin bed. Thanks in advance.

    I am sorry to hear that. I would purchased a pretty bed spread and throw pillows.

    Perhaps buying a bed skirt with slits on each corner so it will drape down to the floor would help disguise it's hospital bed appearance. I believe spray painting the metal frame and some fresh lovely bedding would also make it look less sterile. Please post a photo of before and after when you've completed the project. Good luck.

    First of all, I'm so sorry for your loss! I would suggest you create a day-bed effect by pushing the length of the bed next to the wall so that the wall becomes the back of the "couch". Select a cover that makes it look more like a couch, and use big pillows for back support. Good luck!
