Master Bedroom: Easy Canopy Bed

I love canopy beds about as much as I love high ceilings... so I really love them.
Don't love the price though, and what if I change my mind and decide it looks too big for my small bedroom?

So I made a canopy for my bed that is both cheap and can be changed or removed whenever I want.

I hung curtain rods from my ceiling!

This can be done a bunch of different ways... a single rod at the foot of the bed, parallel rods at the sides, or rods going all the way around or 3/4 of the way around...

I hung rods 3/4 of the way around the bed.

I used Ikea's (now discontinued) Index curtain and corner rods, and some ceiling mount curtain rod brackets from the hardware store.

Finally, I had to do something... ummm.... unique? genius?  (I'd like to go with genius, but you tell me) to keep the curtain rods from dipping at the wall.

I used a borer drill bit to drill a well in a pair of medallions.  Then I screwed it into the wall and slipped my curtain rod end into the well.  The medallion holds the rod in place perfectly!  I can open and close the curtain and the rod stays put!  No glue or anything, and it makes removing the curtain to clean super easy!

In a couple of spots I managed to (luckily) screw the brackets into ceiling studs, everywhere else I screwed into plastic anchors in the drywall.  My toddler pulls on them too much for my comfort, but they've stayed in place for over a year now!

I think it looks and feels so romantic and luxurious...


Now I'm thinking of changing out the curtains for a lighter summer look... maybe add a little color?  What do you think?

Also, the house tour will be on Friday!!  At least the rooms that are clean will be...hahhaha...argh.  :)

  1. Love this. Where did you get the curtains??? I'm trying to find some like that in CREAM, having a hard time though, any suggestions?


  2. I love this idea! I have been wanting a canopy bed too. But they are very expensive. How much was the whole project worth? Do you know what can i use now that ikea doesnt sell those rods anymore?
    Thank you


  3. What a terrific idea! You'd never know this wasn't a four-poster or canopy bed without knowing how you built this. Beautiful comforter cushions and pillows to boot!
