I posted my complete bedroom makeover a couple of days ago – where I re-designed my bedroom for under $125!
Today I wanted to show you how I made these bed canopy curtains for my bed for around $70.00 – this was the major expense in my bedroom re-design but it is also the focal point of the room. I saw this PIN on Pinterest two years ago and immediately knew I wanted to use it as inspiration.
You first need to start off with curtain sheers, I used (8) panels for this canopy and purchased them for $5.00 each at Big Lots. Here are the supplies you will need to purchase for this project:
I used the white garden hooks to hang the curtain rod from the ceiling – these easily screwed in and kept the rod secure and safe from falling. This is where you will hang the (4 63″ long panels from to start. Make sure that you place one garden hook at each end and then one in the middle to keep it sturdy.
Next come the curtain rods that are hung on the wall – I used two different sizes. The bigger one was screwed in first and then we added the second one which was a cheaper version, behind it so it would hide the seam between the two curtains.
You will want to hang the end of your 63″ curtain panels on the smaller curtain rod, and then you will want to hang your 84″ curtain panels on the larger rod so that there is no gap between the two.
I found this flowered mirror on clearance for only $10.00 – I spray painted it and secured it to the wall using a picture hanger, then gathered the curtains around it so you could not see the gap.
Let me know how this works for you and remember to check out my entire bedroom design for more pictures of this re-design.
