Make a Canopy Bed from Curtain Hardware

IKEA Hackers

Canopy beds are pretty but are often less than affordable. This simple IKEA hack puts to use some simple curtain hardware that, when mounted to the ceiling, has a beautiful canopy effect. Want to see how it's done?

This system found over at IKEA Hackers was created by using DIGNITET curtain hardware from IKEA. Instead of mounting them to the wall, they were instead affixed to the ceiling.

The look creates privacy and gives the illusion of a canopy bed without the insanely high overhead or high delivery fees. Even if you're not a fan of the look in the bedroom, it could still be used elsewhere in the home where a little privacy or secluded space might be nice. Check out more on this project over at IKEA Hackers.
