Home Home Decor The above drawing is the directions for creating DIY Canopy Bed. “You’ll need 2 drapery rods & a very long length of fabric. Install one bar right above the head of the bed and one at the foot and run the fabric behind the bed (you can tack it to the wall near the floor so it doesn’t move). I think it’s a beautiful and cheap way to create a very romantic and dramatic look for your canopy bed.”
