As I said in an earlier post, this is uncharted territory. I’ve built a wall unit and I’ve built a canopy, but never combined them both.
I wanted to design this canopy so that I didn’t have to rely on fasteners to keep things from falling. I wanted each board to rest on another. The sides of the canopy rest on the headboard and the post. The footboard rest on the post. Each of them have a ¾” offset on the inside for the mirror grid to rest on. The mirrors will also rest on that same ¾” offset. Building it this way there is no worries about screws pulling out. Even though they might not need it I do plan on putting screws in the entire grid.
Here is the raw video of the canopy grid building:
