no previous part Part 1 of Oak Wall/Canopy series Part 2: The Piers »

This project is something a little different. It is a bedroom wall unit, not a murphy wall bed, but one with piers, headboard, mirrors and a light bar. The kind where the bed just sits in front of it. The twist on this one is I will be adding a canopy to it. This will be a canopy like the old waterbed style, with the mirrors in the top. I’ve built both the Accent style wall unit and the canopy in the past, but have never combined the two.

I’ll start with a style that I built before and really love. It is called the Accent Wall. It has a combination of wood and smoked glass doors. The shelves will be back lit to create a fiber optic effect.

Here is an Accent Wall that I built in 2003

Here is a picture of a canopy:

The canopy will be more of a style to match the wall unit

Pictures will be posted daily on my Current Projects link at or Or watch us build it live:
