Senior design editor Stacey Smithers creates a dreamy no-sew canopy bed with curtain rods and fabric.
I’ve been looking to smarten up my guest room and liked that this project gives big impact with little time commitment. 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!
