Create your own canopy bed with curtain rods

Have you ever wanted a canopy draped over your bed, but didn't want to spend the money for a custom canopy frame and fabric? You can easily create your own dream canopy bed all on your own! Canopy rods can be a bit expensive, but curtain rods do just the trick.The only materials that you will need are curtain rods, fabric or drapery and tools to attach the rods, ideally a drill screwdriver and a trusty metal ruler. 

Finding curtain rods and fabric
Measure the perimeter around your bed, {including} the length and the width. When choosing curtain rods, make sure that they are long enough to cover the whole area around your bed. It is much better to have longer rods that go past your bed, rather than rods that cut short before your bed.Some people use three rods and leave the front side of the bed open, while others use four and enclose the whole bed with the canopy.

Colors of fabric and rods
Also, choose a neutral color for the rods, such as white or a faint color that matches the fabric or drapery that will be hanging down. A popular fabric choice is a light silk or transparent fabric that will soften and complement the rest of the room. Window drapery fabrics are also a good choice, as they can be priced lower compared to custom canopy treatments. 

Attaching the rods and canopy
Depending on the type of rods that you purchase, they will be need to be attached differently. Most types will need to be drilled into the ceiling or walls. Once the rods are attached, hang the draperies from them. You can tie the fabric back or let it hang down and completely cover the bed for more privacy.
