So I had a little fun last week creating a canopy for my bed out of two vintage tablecloths. I thought it turned out rather cute!
I was inspired by this display at Ikea. I have the same bed and loved how they draped the fabric to make a simply canopy.
I sewed two tablecloths together. I took the fringe off of an old chenille bedspread that I had cut up for other projects and basted that onto one edge. I used inexpensive curtain rods from Ikea and pipe clamps.
The ceiling is slanted where the wall paper starts. Simply tucked the clamp in behind the paneling here without a screw. Next summer hope to take down the wallpaper and paint the pinewood paneling white.
I added old white shutters on each side. I recently bought matching night stands from Meijers which flank each side of the bed.
And a few of my key necklaces hanging on the shutters.
Another look - the pillows are also vintage hankies and fabrics.
