Above is the frame work of the pseudo canopy bed frame up in place. It only has one post on the outward corner and the rest is screwed in place to the walls. I'm not sure the peak is traditional but it is what she sketched up on paper and thus I made it so.
Below is some wrap around curtain rods and bolts of fabric later. My MIL, on her final day in the country until springtime, sewed the fabric into curtains. My youngest daughter, who requested this for her birthday above all else consumerism, is a very happy camper indeed.
I would like to say I am going to turn my attention from this project back to the porch swing project languishing in the garage but as I write this, it has snowed, is snowing, and will snow all day along with a ten day forecast of barely above freezing for highs. There is still a chance for one more warm streak for me to finish it up but it may still be spring before it gets hung.
P.S. I didn't think the title of this post was a word. I didn't know if canopy could be used as a verb much less made past tense. But google assured me it was and could and so it is.
