Lighted Canopy $10

I recently redecorated my daughters room. I wanted a simple but awesome looking canopy over her day bed. This is by far one of the easiest projects I've ever done. And all for $10!!!
Time: 20 Minutes Cost: $10 Difficulty: Easy
Before picture.
Box of Command Strips at the dollar store for $4.
Hung these on both the wall and the ceiling.
Hung two sets of curtain rods on the wall at the head of the bed. I used extra curtain rods I already owed. Which is why they're mismatched. You don't even notice when the project is complete.
Hung Christmas lights from the hooks on the walls and ceiling. I used old lights I already owned.
Hung two sheer panels of 84" length curtains from both sets of curtain rods. I then pinned the ends over the lights on the ceiling and secured them with flat tacks.
Purchased the curtains for $6 on Amazon.
The finished product!
My daughter is in love!!!

Materials I used for this project:

  • Sheer Curtains $6   (Amazon)
  • Christmas Lights $0   (Already Owned)
  • 2 Curtain Rods $0   (Already Owned)

      The Leds don't get hot at all. You could hold on to the bulb and not get burnt.

    BEAUTIFUL!! For anyone who doesn't have that kind of ceiling, and doesn't want to put thumbtacks into their ceiling, a regular desk stapler works on drywall, and leaves only a tiny pinhole not visible after removal. (I am NOT talking about a staple gun! Just a regular stapler for paper.)

      Yes it would hold the sheer fabric. I have done that. :)
