20mm Angle Brackets, screwed into the frame and onto a piece of MDF, that'll hopefully keep the cat damage at bay (unless they know how to use a screw driver)
Due to the number of beds I originally catered for, the cheapest option for me I found for mattresses, was the quilt inserts at Kmart, that I cut a long strip of and folded it in to fit the size I needed
Pillow cases became Mattress covers
might need to work on that a little bit
a small baby blanket
and the original bedding (two very narrow pillows, and a doona - this has little frogs, glass slippers, roses and crown spaced over it, representing some of the princesses available with this brand)
For the canopy, I sewed on to the sides a split ring, I decided to do this 8 inches down from the head of the bed, as the likely occupant would be sitting up where the pillows are more than anywher else
and screwed into the ceiling a hook
now to test it out....
sleeping soundly (even though she's got shoes on) ZZZZZZZZZZZZ
Hey! I don't snore
You wouldn't know, you were asleep
Ooh my heads not in the canopy
a halo, the ceiling light still shines through, so she can read in bed
What do you think?
I love it.
Things I need: paint, fabric, beads, prop
