A romantic "ciel de lit"

For as long as I can remember, I have dreamed of having a romantic canopy over my bed, with soft, sheer panels cascading from it... I have, for a while now, been searching for any old charming piece with just the right "bones" that I could repurpose, and that's when I found this sweet, perfectly chippy metal plant holder (or, at least that's what I think it is!). By simply turning it upside down and adding sheer panels (bought at Ikea for under $10, then dyed with tan Rit dye), I have a dreamy ciel de lit! The search is over... For now!

  14. Hello
    Wonderful! Can I merely say what a relief to uncover someone who essentially knows what they’re speaking about on the internet?
