Curtain rods hung from the ceiling to simulate a canopy bed. I hung our curtain rods from the ceiling in my living room at our B to give our ceilings more height. This is a great idea to add a canopy feel to one of our guest rooms without the footboard.
DIY four poster bed. Drill holes in the uprights to slide steel rods or metal pipes through to hang hammocks above the mattress. The rods can be removed for winter, and fabric can be draped to camouflage the holes.
