I've always wanted to have a canopy bed like this one! it's great, only thing is I wouldn't know what to use at the top to mount the damn thing. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated (or the name of the type of canopy or something I can use to find it on the information super highway)! : )

take an extendable curtain rod to a building supply warehouse, explain what you are doing and they will find you the right brace to use and tell you how to install it.

To me it looks like a wide dowel or section of pvc pipe with a ball finial on the end of it. It doesn't really have to hold too much weight, especially if you use a lightweight fabric, so I'd just nail a sawtooth bracket to the flat end of the dowel and anchor a screw into the wall to hang it on.
I googled around a bit and found this link

hope it helps!

 Wink Cool thanks. That actually is very very helpful and sounds like it would work and be a very cost effective way of making my canopy. and thanks for the link (my husband always says i'm terrible at googling stuff). I'm thinking of using some kind of black sheer fabric, but I'm not trying to make it look like a princess room, more of a goth/victorian/french/romantic to keep my current theme consistant.
