This is what the bunk bed looked like before the change.
The grandkids are over and playing on it. Look how plain it looks.
If you want to learn how to make it, watch the video.
I do like the bunk bed better now that it is wrapped with a skirt on the top and bottom. I also changed the curtains.

Gorgeous 3-photo 8×8 canvas hanging with rope glue gunned on.
Watch this tutorial on using rope as a decorative piece around a canvas photo hanging for an idea.
I had redone this dresser in 2013 now this dresser is being cut in half for two uses. Watch video to view the transformation. To see what it looked like before visit Dresser makeover
Photo shown below is the two halves. I just put a 1/4″ plywood and painted the bottom half because it is going into a walk-in closet.
Don’t throw out your old canvas paintings because you can paint over them. Especially that busy paint job you outgrew.
Sometimes simplicity is all you need and that’s what I did for my daughter.
I painted a solid gray over the painting. I then used a paint pen to do the feathers. I didn’t have to worry about smoothing it because it wasn’t textured. If you have that issue then sand it down first. You may also have to prime over old paint work in case it is oil based.
This canvas picture frame idea is an easy project. All you need is Mod Podge, sponge brush, a 5 pack of 6×6 square canvas frames and chain from Michael’s, hot glue gun, and 5×5 photos.
First thing you need to do is put Mod Podge on the photo, then place the photo on the center of the canvas, lay it down on a news paper and press photo onto canvas. Do that with all 5 frames. Next, let it set for about an hour or so.
Now, take the chain and lay it over one side so that it strings over all the squares and leave enough chain for hanging then run down the other side. Take a butter knife and use that to space each one evenly when gluing the chain onto the canvas. You only need to glue the top and bottom of each square. It does get a bit tricky and messy. It is the one thing I don’t like about working with a glue gun beside getting burnt.
Once done, it’s ready to hang. Enjoy!
