Draping Ceilings for the DIY Bride

Dyning Shades Photo Courtesy of Shaded Nation
Product from Ikea

Ikea makes a 'Dyning Shade,' (shown above in a picture by Shaded Nation), which is a great option for DIY brides who want to add a canopy effect to their outdoor wedding. This is a great inexpensive option for draping outdoors. Head over to your local Ikea store and check these out, they are a budget friendly $25.00 each. These shades, that look like sails, give a decorator look to your wedding. The shade comes complete with hooks and cords to hang it from columns, lamposts or trees. For indoor events you can get some extra strong magnets with a built-in hook (Model# 07218) from Northern Tool that cost less than three dollars which will let you clip it to the ceiling. Add drama and break up the space of your event space without spending a fortune.

Wow! I want to try some of these for over our patio out back, not even just for our wedding. I looked at them and they cut the UV rays too, I'd love them over my patio permanantly. Anyone know if they are waterproof?

My Ikea sold out of these, had to order some, can't wait to put them up to try them out!

Mine too JJ...everyone must be hitting IKEA for these darn things, I think it's the price point! Plus my IKEA had a big sale 4th of July which might explain it.
