I started to think, how should I redecorate it. The finally I thought about first changing the look of the bed and get rid of the canopy at all. I upholstered that iron headboard. My husband helped me with that. He cut the piece of plywood according to the headboard style. Once he cut it then I upohlestered it with this beautiful blue fabric I purchased from Joan Fabric. Finally it attached the upholestered peice to the iron headboard. I think it turned out to be great.
