    Love the headboard and bed spread. Where is the comforter from?

    The frame itself isn't too difficult. Just use 2by4s to form the base. You can choose and do the math of how many squares you want. Once you get your frame down, drill holes on the inside to string the lights through. I recommend clear Christmas lights with white strands. Then you would have to paint it white. For mine I did zigzags down the side with painters tape. It helped give it some color. The. At lowes they sell clear acryllic sheets. Roughly $55 for this size. Then buy frosted paint. And paint over several several several times. It gets very repetitive. Then hand drill or glue the sheet onto the frame. I started doing this and quickly realized it will never look as perfect at this one. Overall though, I love it. I probably spent about $200. It was not cheap by any means. But im sure there are ways to make it a little cheaper and easier.

    Zigzags and painted over it with a different color. Also the frosted paint comes in spray cans. Hopefully that helps! Best of luck!
