1. Hang curtains overhead from the ceiling to the wall and down to the floor.

This will give your room the illusion of having lofty ceilings. You'll need three curtain rods and some hooks to get started. Then, you can flood your canopy with string lights.

See full tutorial here.

2. Or, you can get a similar effect using nails and a hammer.

And with nails, you can make your canopy super billowy.

3. Use copper pipes and wooden poles for a clean, elegant look.

With this approach, you'll create four canopies around the corners of the bed. It takes a little longer to assemble but the finished look is so worth it. Then, you can add an ethereal tapestry in the back and illuminate it with lights and lamps, like this mystifying gourd lamp.

See instructions here. You can get inexpensive sheer white curtains from Amazon ($7) or Ikea ($9).

4. Attach tulle fabric to a light fixture, like a chandelier.
