Every gal dreams of having a romantic bedroom with all the little feminine touches and this simple canopy can change up the whole look of a bedroom and make a huge difference in how you feel.
When sleeping in a canopy bed, a night of sweet dreams is inevitably guaranteed. There is nothing that makes a bedroom feel more romantic or luxurious than fabric cascading from the ceiling. But, unless you were born into royalty, a canopy bed can be hard to come by. Therefore, you must resort to getting a little bit crafty when decorating your bedroom.
A canopy doesn’t necessarily need to hang over the whole bed, but looks fabulous located just at the headboard. That’s the cool thing about a DIY project… especially when you have a small home or a small budget. You can be creative, live out a few decorating dreams, or move onto new ones! So I imagine more than one or two of you have been dreaming of a canopy bed like one of these…you’ll never feel like you have a boring bedroom again.
Also consider draping it around a sofa or a reading chair, hanging it over an entry table or fireplace mantel for drama, or use it to play up a focal point in any room. Oh, and don’t forget, the bed!
Combine this treatment over your love seat with a few floral or lace pillows for a wonderful cottage look. Add it over an entry art display for an elegant backdrop, or use it over your little princess’s bed for a no fuss special room treatment! You could add fringe or beading to the bottom edge with a glue gun.
This project holds a huge range of possibilities for adding romance and charm to your rooms, on a budget! Basics are easy! Think of it like hanging curtains, just from the ceiling instead of the walls.
