My thoughtful mother-in-law found this ikea bed canopy at a yard sale almost two years ago for Lucy's room.
While I really like it, I wanted to change it up a bit for Nora's new room. I found this sheet of linen scrapbook paper that I've decided to use as the color inspiration for the nursery.
With that in mind, I chose a rust red corduroy (that looks velvety) to alter the canopy. I cut off the old flags.
Then I made a template for my new flags.
I'm really happy with the way it turned out! It's sort-of a cross between between a flower and a circus.
Here it is up close.
Six weeks to go!
