And have all the dust and moths trapped in the light fall on top of you and on the bed linen! I'd rather not, given that there are tried and tested alternatives! Ditto for bookshelves over the bed - we made this mistake once, never again.

Obviously if it could be done by standing on the bed (having put a towel over the bedcover first I agree is a necessary precaution) I would have done so @leah_porter28, but the ceiling is too high. And no, I can't move the bed to make room for a normal ladder to reach it either
