Build a Wooden Crown Bed Canopy
Crown bed canopy – If you love the look of a canopy bed but lacks a canopy bed, a bed crown solution. A bed crown resembles a cornice box for a window; just hang a bed crown on the wall, not a window. In a bed-crown arrangement, the fabric is held against the wall. This is unlike a canopy arrangement, which allows the fabric to drape around the bed. Make your own bed crown requires little more than some plywood, paint and fabric. This do-it-yourself project is easy and relatively inexpensive.
Build a wooden crown bed canopy; Draw the shape of the front piece of the crown of half-inch plywood. Select a shape that appeals to you, as a scroll pattern, an actual crown or some other random design. Cut the shape out with a jigsaw. Cut two sides of the crown of the half-inch-thick plywood, using a circular saw. Apply wood glue to the edges of the side piece that attaches to the front. Secure the bow further by attaching L-brackets in the corners where the bow meets the front piece. Paint all sides of the plywood pieces, using spray paint or flat wall paint.
