It all started with a set of curtains, I swear… I needed to switch out my daughters pink and not shear enough curtains with something that would let more light into her bedroom. Once I had done that I was left with two perfectly good curtains that I would definitely not be using in any other part of the house. Eventually, Charlie will be getting a bigger bed that can be expanded into an extra guest bed, but for now she’s stuck with these two toddler beds left over from when she shared a room with her brother.
This idea for the DIY canopies just came to me as a way to make her room feel a little more special, her room hasn't been touched since we moved back in. From there things just spiraled out of control. Unfortunately, I don't have any before photos, but the carpet and all of the furniture was already there I just added some art work, the canopies and the knobs on the dresser are new and the only thing that I actually paid for. The art work is mostly from a stash of stuff that I’ve made over the years and almost everything is stuck to the walls with 3M picture hangers, which are my newest obsession, who needs nails?
Get ready for the most complicated DIY ever, just kidding its super easy and involves zero sewing, nailing or screwing. Here’s what you will need
1 set of curtains (mine are from Ikea)
Obviously, these are toddler beds and I think that this would work well for a crib, but you might have to experiment for a larger sized bed. I thought this was a great idea for a little temporary decor if you have have a nursery or a temperamental toddler. Let me know if you try this DIY, I would love to see photos.
