Turn a Set of Sheets into a Beautiful Bed Crown and Canopy
I have always loved canopy beds and one thing I really wanted to do for the nursery was hang a bed crown above the crib with a canopy that draped over the sides, but after looking into the cost of buying a Bed Crown and a Canopy I realized my eyes were much bigger than my budget, so there was NO way that was going to be possible. So after trying other ways to decorate the space above the crib I realized that I wasn't going to be happy until there was a Bed Crown and Canopy hanging there.

Since my options were limited I decided that I was going to attempt to make my own Bed Crown and Canopy and low and behold it was much easier than I thought and the end product turned out WAY better than I imagined, so I wanted to share a step by step tutorial that shows how to turn a vintage shelf and set of queen sheets into a Beautiful Bed Crown and Canopy!!
