I've always adored the look of a canopy bed, but with figuring out how to put it together, and then there's the whole commitment thing...would I really want it long enough to make it worth the price?! BUT... look at this clever way to make a faux canopy bed, and quite frankly, I'm actually loving it more than real ones! I love how the drapes come all the way from the ceiling, making such a strong statement in the room.
Just hang some curtain rods on the ceiling and attach whatever curtains you like! When you're tired of the look, simply take down the rods and you can reuse them somewhere else in the house!
