An Old Ladder Re-purposed as a Bed Canopy

room 01.10.15
I've always dreamed of having a canopy bed...somewhere along the way it switched from "pink and frilly" to "neutral and junky". I am very happy with how it turned out.

My engineer husband very securely attached the brackets to the walls and the old ladder to the brackets...no worries :) Then I draped 2 matching painters drop cloths over 2 of the rungs of the ladder. That's it...easy!

    I love your "original design" style,, I may need to borrow this idea as I am inspiring to open a Bed & Breakfast in the future. Thanks for sharing of your talents :)

    You got rid of most of the dust catching people complain about ! Love it! And your picture too. I confess I could see it with a plain door headboard. Not that I am capable of doing that. Thanks for sharing
