Full Size Canopy Bed – The sheer chiffon fabric on a canopy bed provides a whimsical feel to any bedroom. Whether you are making an awning for your little princess or the fabric that flows around the bed, it simply appeals to you, PVC pipe is just the material to use. You can build a PVC cabin structure for a full-size bed over the course of an afternoon. All you need is a hacksaw and some loops to secure the tubes. Measure the length and width of the bed.
A standard full size canopy bed measures 75 by 54 inches. Cut two of the PVC pipes into four 27-inch pieces and four 12-inch pieces with the hacksaw. Place the tube in a miter box to help you make a smooth and clean cut. Stand the four 75-inch PVC pipes vertically against the posts of the full-size structure. Secure the pipes with plastic flanges. Use two loops per position. Place a three-way PVC corner connector on the top end of the four vertical PVC pipes.
Insert the end of each of the 12-inch PVC pieces into the connectors. Place a two-way PVC connector on the ends of each of the 12-inch pieces. Insert a 27-inch piece of pipe into the fitting and attach the three-way T-connector to the other ends. Secure transparent fabric to the top corners of the full size canopy bed posts and wrap the fabric down and around the posts.
