We’ve gotten a few questions about our canopy recently, so Gwyneth and I thought we’d share how we put together our version and some other DIY takes that we think are pretty dreamy.
If you’ve been following, you know that most of what we do is designed to solve a small-space challenge, and most of our ideas come from my Mom. Our canopy was no exception. With our bedroom footprint being only slightly larger than our bed, we needed to draw the eye up to create the illusion of space. Without a real bed frame, we had no idea how to make it happen. Then Mom sent us this photo from Better Homes & Gardens:
Floor to ceiling fabric created the illusion of space, and swing arm cranes as fixtures meant we could recreate this with minimal investment. Sign. Us. Up.
So there’s our Better Homes & Gardens inspired version! Here are four others that we find rather charming.
Elle Decor featured these dramatic curtains hung from ceiling mounted rods:
While definitely more than a weekend project, this wood panelled headboard from House to Home is a serious statement! We also love that this surface works for hanging a mini chandelier.
Rie over at Home and Harmony created this dreamy tent to cover a popcorn ceiling she didn’t love. Rie, love your quilted tie shams too – we’ve got them in sage!
