My "Big Girl" Ladder Bed Canopy...

My engineer hubby very  securely attached these painted metal braces to the wall above the bed...I  repeat, VERY securely.
 

And then he attached this  old rustic ladder to the braces....and I draped these painters drop cloths over  the ladder rungs...just like that, a Big girl junky canopy...sigh...did I say  I love it???  I do!!

 

We very sternly warned the kiddos about practicing their monkey bar moves while were not looking...but if they decide to be sneaky little monkeys, my husband assures me they wont be able to get that thing down...but shhhh, dont tell them that ;)
 

And of course you need  something special on the wall...inspired by a very special song...Forever and Ever, Amen by Randy Travis.  One of my moms favorite songs when I was a little girl.  

 

Does every little girl dream of a Canopy Bed? I know I did...
But somewhere along the way I grew out of "pink and frilly" and switched over to "neutral and junky"...but either way I am totally "in love" with my "new" old ladder bed "canopy"!!

StepIntoOurGarden writes: This is beautiful! It is one of those ideas that makes me smile and say: "People are SOOOOO creative!"

I LOVE the composition art above the bed. Knowing that you made it using a song that your mom used to sing to you makes it extra special. I look forward to seeing more of your creations.
