Sometimes during my many sleepless nights, I find myself tumbling. No really, tumbling on da Tumblr. Okay that was so cheesy but we gonna go with it. I recently moved out my bed in my room-don’t ask- because I believed that it hampered with my productivity *cricket chirp*. Obviously that was by no way a smart idea but still, I didn’t want a bed in my room anymore-I wanted something like a bed but more cosy and cute.
That’s where I came up with the idea of a canopy/fort. There are so many ways you can build a canopy and one of the easiest is if you have a bed of course, so in my case, it was a little different. I decided to use a hula hoop to create my little nook in my room and trust me, it was the easiest thing ever- it does help that it also takes up very little space and is E&I [easy & inexpensive]. Not to mention tumblr-ish especially with the fairy lights right?
So far, I spent two cosy nights in my canopy fort and it was soo comfy. I edit videos and read with my little bro and if I want to sleep, I can easily just pull out the comforter and make it a night.
What you need:
– a hula hoop: the bigger the hoop the bigger the canopy
– at least 2 curtains: 4 is ideal since it would be able to facilitate the 4 pieces of ribbon/tulle that would hold the canopy. I used 2 in this DIY and in the video, I show you how you can get around that
– fairy lights
– comforters, blankets, pillows
I will definitely be adding some more throw pillows to this stash soon enough!
BTW, this VS wall…should it be white or no? Lemme know!
