I have a canopy bed frame already. I'm looking for a howto/ DIY tips on how to cover it. My bed looks similar to this http://www.houzz.com/photos/17...-bedroom-other-metro ,But I want it to look something like this http://www.flickr.com/photos/14014535@N02/1427073808 . I've searched for days and everything I find just shows how to build a poster bed or create a canopy that give the look of a poster bed. Can anyone provide tips or sites that would help me create that look?
Hi and Welcome!
Love to see your project. Do you have fabrics selected already? Do you sew?
It's an easy DIY. You can either mount from ceiling or directly to the insides of posts.
This is one of my favorite pattern companies.
You can order the valance patterns too depending on the look you want for your canopy.
Good luck & again Welcome!

Thank you. I sew pretty well. I haven't purchased fabics yet just trying to find the best way to do it
think I recall on one of the shows? they started with a diy made rectangle of 2x4's mounted to the ceiling for a base...they mounted curtain rods to the exterior of the frame...
use a stud finder to have the most secure frame to the ceiling...the more secure the frame the heavier the fabric you can use..(like velvet, ect)
I've seen this project completed very easily and nicely by draping sheets and tying them over a 4 poster bed like yours, i.e. no sew.
