Fit for a Princess
Pottery Barn is one of my favorite catalogs in which to flip through and try to replicate some of their designs. At the beginning of the summer, one of their catalogs included a beautiful canopy for a little girl's room. Not at all liking the price tag that came with it, I decided to make Tori one of her own, but much cheaper. On one of my expeditions out to the antique stores in our area, I found the antique white "mosquito" canopy. It is in perfect condition...smells of lavender and has no holes! I couldn't believe the price...10 bucks! To make it more "princess-like," I purchased some shimmery rose pink tulle and ribbon. Then, I used some scrap booking materials to complete the dreamy look.
Tori has enjoyed playing, reading and sleeping under her billowy canopy. I arranged it so that it could be tied back when she is sleeping, so that she wouldn't get tangled up in it. The decorative features are held on by velcro so that it could be changed easily. This is something I have really enjoyed putting together for her, and I loved the fact that it was a fraction of the cost of the PB canopy.
