Skirting the Bedpost

There are those times when the most beautiful of beds poses a problem for the duster. You can see from the photo that the posts and rail on this bed do not allow for the standard bed skirt to drop. This is easily solved by making three separate panels of the skirt with no decking and either tacking it directly to the inside of the rail or using 1 inch velcro. Heavy duty, sticky velcro will adhere to the wood or you can use regular velcro, then staple or tack it with upholstery tacks. Velcro must be sewn to the fabric
