About This Project
This is made from cedar, but I painted it anyway. Used a standard single mattress. I highly recommend painting everything first before you put the project together.

Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Primed the entire piece with Kilz and then used Rustoleum Spray Paint (Espresso). The canopy is made from Ikea curtains (19.95/2). I purchased 2 packages, each containing 2 panels. I then sewed the 2 panels together from each package, now having 2 extra long panels. To secure to the bed, I hand-stitched velcro fasteners to the curtains and wrapped around the top part of the canopy.
