Make Your Own Canopy Bed


Can you tell that I’m still in *dream* mode? Last week, I shared this affordable and pretty DIY for making an upholstered headboard and today, I am dreaming of canopy beds. We’ve been trying to decide what to do with our own bedroom in our new house and I’ve been researching inspiration all over the place. I think I found what I am looking for after checking out the latest Lonny mag. Inside,  love Lonny EIC’s – Michelle Adams – has created her very own custom and totally affordable canopy. How did she do this? She use curtain rods and attached them to the ceiling. Super clever and chic. Using fabric – she finished the canopy style. What a neat and easy solution to making the canopy bed style work. It’s perfect for renters or home owners as well as those of use that like to mix up their design style often.

What do you think of this make your own canopy bed? What fabric would you use in your own bedroom?
