Maia's Room Make Over - DIY Canopy Bed - Part 5

My daughter Maia has always wanted a canopy bed, as I think all little girls like. So I thought I could make one for her, as I wasn't about to buy a whole new set of furniture for her. We will wait until she outgrows her bed for now!

Here is what I did...


TIP: To help me find the right measurements before I drilled holes into the ceiling I used thumbtacks to pin elastic bands to the ceiling so I could see exactly where to hang up my curtain rod!


Here is a closer look! I bought these rods at IKEA for $1.99 on sale, woohoo!


I had gone to the fabric store to look for some shear-type material, but for the amount, I needed it was going to cost me a fortune! So good ol' IKEA had the perfect curtains. All I needed was 3 panels so I had to buy 2 packages.


All I did then was sew the panels to each other, leaving pockets for where the curtain rods would be placed through. 


Since I didn't like the ends that the rods came with, I used my own round crystal beads and just hot glued them in place.

And Voila! Super quick and easy canopy bed! 

I hope you liked this tutorial and maybe even make one for your little princess!

Happy crafting :)
