What I Used:
The How To:
My solution was to buy these bed risers. There were 8 in a pack and I used 4 for the edges and two smaller ones for the center support.
I had seen this idea a few months back on My Wee Abode. Julie had done a fantastic job of making a very pretty, pleated bed skirt. But I’m two lazy for that. Instead I came up with my own simpler version. I only needed to hide two sides of the bed because as you may have noticed the bed is pushed up against the wall. I started out by folding the canvas drop cloth in two lengthwise.
And here is the result. That 12 foot length was enough to cover the two sides easily. If I should decide to move the bed and expose the other side as well, all I have to do is cut the canvas lengthwise and use the other half (the other 12 feet that is now folded over) on the remaining sides.
This is so much nicer and pulled together than before when I was exposed for all the world to see what was underneath.
Not only am I hiding my storage bins but I also added more height to the bed with the risers. The solid light color of the canvas drop cloth serves to visually make the room look taller.
