DIY Canopy bed
  1. Faux Canopy

If you’ve ever wanted to sleep under a canopy, but can’t find the space for an actual canopy-style bed frame? This is the project for you. The trick is to build a frame of curtain poles and ceiling brackets large enough to cover your entire bed, and then suspend it from the ceiling with ceiling brackets and hang curtains from the rods or attach netting to the frame for a softer feel. It’s simple and yet practical.

2. Floating herbs?

Hanging gardens are a great way to add greenery and herbs to your kitchen. These suspended vegetable gardens look great and create more space in the kitchen. To create a rustic effect fix your brackets over a window recess to create a hanging herb garden with minimal effort. With some simple changes, you will be able to enjoy fresh herbs throughout the year. Make sure your brackets are strong enough to hold the weight of the pots by using longer screws and suitable wall plugs.

3. Finial wall hooks

Accessorise your home by using your decorative finials as unique coat or scarf hooks in your hall or entrance. They are simple to install and come with their own screws, so fixing them to the wall is simple just drill a hole and insert a plug. Though if you are looking to keep your walls hole free go for command strips to keep them in place if you are going to be using them for decorative purposes only or for particularly lightweight items.

However, you may decide to reuse your curtain poles, brackets or finials, be sure to take that creative energy with you around your home and create a sustainable decor that will make your home stand out from the crowd.
