10 Ways To Get the Canopy Look Without Buying a New Bed

10 Ways To Get the Canopy Look Without Buying a New Bed
Maybe you love the look of a canopy bed, but can't afford to buy new furniture. (Hey, beds are expensive). Or maybe you really like your current bed, but want to give it a bit of a romantic makeover. Here's an Apartment Therapy guide to DIYing your way to canopy bliss. An easy way to get the canopy bed look is to hang curtains from an L-shaped drapery rod that's been mounted to the ceiling. In this case, the curtains can't be drawn around the bed, but you definitely get that romantic look. Here are a few more variations on this look. There's also the option of hanging curtains only over the head of the bed. From Better Homes and Gardens: drape a piece of fabric over two swing-arm curtain rods, mounted on either side of the bed, for a super-easy canopy. You can mount a single hoop or curtain rod to the ceiling in the middle of your bed and drape fabric from it over the ends of your bed. From Country Living, a clever idea for bedrooms with sloping ceilings. (Images: as credited above)
