I bought the fabric from Vogue Fabrics, a local fabric store. The sheer coppery-orange organza curtains are hung from the frame with fabric tabs which are held together with velcro, so they are easy to remove for washing. I kept one corner of the bed free of curtains so I could more easily watch thunder storms through the windows in the corner of my bedroom.
The top panel is made from the same coppery organza fabric. It’s held with velcro’d tabs on the end at the foot of the bed but hangs down a little way at the head of the bed (seen against the yellow wall in the photos). Painted stars are hung from that panel. The stars are the tops of star-shaped cardboard boxes that I got from a local craft store and then painted with acrylics. Besides looking pretty, the stars also serve a functional purpose – inside each is a 2 oz weight that helps keep the top panel from sagging downwards in the middle too much. I wanted it to drape a bit, so I added enough weight to keep the top from sagging too much but yet not so much weight that it was stretched taut. I suppose I can now say that the weight of the stars holds my roof up.
Wrapped around and hanging from the top of the frame are tiny white LEDs on bendable metal wires. Also draped from the top frame are panels of a very funky red fabric with shiny gold threads forming a grid with gold blobs appearing randomly at some of the grid’s intersections. Finishing off the design is a large paper star hanging at the foot of the bed that I got at the Christmas market in Chicago’s Daley Plaza.
