DIY: No-Sew Canopy Bed

Senior design editor Stacey Smithers creates a dreamy no-sew canopy bed with curtain rods and fabric.

Canopy beds often skew one of two ways: lovers’ paradise or little girl’s room — neither of which was what I was going for! But with the right fabric and furniture pairings, I created a look that’s airy and perfect for summer.

I love the hand-painted appearance of this botanical fabric — you could easily swap it out when the seasons change, but I think it’s perennially beautiful. The standard bolt of fabric is 54″ w., so you don’t even need to trim the fabric if you’re using it with a double or queen bed!
