I got married last year and bought 30 of these white umbrellas from Oriental Trading Post (for like $3/piece) for the guests at the wedding. They looked lovely, but I got home with about 20 of them and no place to put them. So.... there was this big space in my bedroom above my closet and below the ceiling that needed covering and I was in the process of picking fabric to sew curtains when I got this idea!
I hope you like it! I know it's really simple, but I am really liking the look. AND they hide all the ugly luggage and files that I have up there. Wo hoo!
