Four-poster bed

Create a four-poster bed to be positioned in the middle of the room. Make the posts from lengths of 4x4. Cut MDF shapes and secure between the top of the posts for decorative detail as well as acting as a support for the canopy.
Bed

Staple sari material to the top of each post to create curtains and a canopy top for the bed. Dress the bed with black linen, a Damask fabric bedspread and cushions.
Side table
