If you've always wanted a canopy in your bedroom but don't have much space, have kids or pets around, or don't want to spend the money to buy something expensive then this DIY is for you! Here's how to make a faux wood bed canopy out of PVC pipes that is compact, easy to assemble, easy to disassemble/store, and budget-friendly (just $35!).
What you'll need (bed size: full):
Four 76-inch long 3/4-inch PVC pipes
Two 64-inch long 3/4-inch PVC pipes
Two 12-inch long 3/4-inch PVC pipes
Four 3-way 3/4-inch PVC elbows
Wood grain contact paper https://amzn.to/2IzaVxm
Window scarf https://amzn.to/38Hz9Ae
Faux vines (I got mine from the 99cent store)

Step 1: Cut Contact Paper
Cut strips of contact paper that are the length of each PVC pipe and wide enough to wrap around, leaving about 2 inches of space at the the ends where the elbows will attach.
Step 2: Attach Contact Paper
Real wooden poles cost WAY more than PVC pipes at home improvement stores, so this trick is amazing. Simply peel the backing off of the contact paper strips, place the pipes at the edge of the contact paper and roll the pipes right over to adhere the contact paper. That's it!
Step 3: Assemble Canopy
Now it's time to assemble using the elbows! You can either do this in the bedroom or in another room where there's more space.
Step 4: Place in Bedroom
Place the canopy in its place above the bed and use wall stickers to attach it to the wall. I also later added fabric straps and push pins for extra stability so you don't have to worry about anything moving or falling, especially if you have kids and/or pets!
Step 5: Add Window Scarf & Vines
Dress up the canopy with accessories like a window scarf, faux or real vines, plants and even lights!
Your canopy is now complete! This compact accessory adds a beautiful touch to any bedroom. Thanks for checking out this tutorial! :) Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/miairajennings/
