Oh, this is fantastic! My overview of marvelous home décor ideas with vintage ladders just got a new ladder home décor idea added to the list: an absolutely wonderful vintage ladder bed canopy.

bedroom furnitureCan not be simpler to DIY: Hang up a ladder with 2 over-sized brackets and hang 2 burlap or otherwise shabby chic curtains on either side from it. Simply drape the fabric over. Instant delight.

Personally I’d cover the brackets with the drape, but that’ s just details. I love how this bedroom makeover project came out! An inspiration for the weekend. What home improvement project are you meant to tackle, today?

  1. what a cute idea

  2. I just LOVE old ladders. I have my own take on this design too (like scrolled brackets instead) but this is fabulous!

    I have a few ladders that I’ve been saving for a number of years now just waiting on the hubby to get to the project they’re intended for. Right now though, the living room is getting painted for the first time in the 10 years we’ve lived here. I’m so excited about that!

  3. This is such a great idea! I agree with you about draping the fabric over the brackets… A couple of hanging glass stars right over the bed would be pretty too.
