For a kids room. Center a rod attached to the ceiling and aligned with the middle of the mattress. Hang and drape a measurably long length of fabric into a canopy. It gives a tent effect. Kids love that. Plus, you can add and remove on a whim.
I love this canopy idea! This bed canopy was built from a planter, ribbon and IKEA drapes. I just hung the planter upside down on the wall. I then sewed ribbon to the top of the IKEA drapes to attach the drapes to the planter.
