How to Make Your Hospital Bed Fit Your Decor

Hate the way your hospital bed looks in your living room? Try this tip from a family in Pennsylvania.

"To make our hospital bed fit better with our decor, we hired a seamstress through our local sewing shop. She measured the metal footboard and made a little fabric 'hat' for it. She also made a fabric pillow to match.

"We then added a dust ruffle with a coordinating stripe. The dust ruffle attaches to the bed with a special kind of Velcro -- on one side, it sticks to fabric, and on the other it adheres to metal. This way, the different positions of the bed don't affect the bed skirt.

"We didn't bother to cover the headboard; it's hidden by cushions."

I found one at a RESTORE store (that supports Habitatfor Humanity) like new automatic...no mattress of course ..but $50.00 and I was the proud owner......great for my back and nights with heartburn or aches and pains

I'm curious as to the type of velcro you used. We can't find one that is double-sided the way described here.

Thank you so much!!! I was happy to get a hospital bed to get comfortable, but it's so plain. My eyelet dust ruffle looks great on it and brightened my room.

What type of dust ruffle would one need to buy...also what is the kind of special velcro that is needed. Where do you suggest purchasing it?

This is a wonderful idea. Thank you for sharing. We will soon be in the 'hospital bed mode' and I will diefinitely use this idea. I even liked the idea of a strip bedskirt with a flowered pillow and covering for end of bed.
