For all the time I spent thinking about how to dress the windows in our new home, what style they would be, what color and texture fit my vision...I never gave too much thought to the curtain rods themselves.
They are important. And not just because their style and finish neeed to fit the room.
If you have large windows or multiple windows close together, you probably figured that out, too.
Getting the curtain rod to hang and function properly for over sized windows is really hard to achieve with a purchased curtain rod.
So we did what we always do when we want something just so around here- we made it ourselves! Twice actually.
And I documented it all in a helpful post I'm sharing over at a friend's site.
Her name is Anika of Anika's DIY Life and she is the kind of DIY-er that makes me feel like I can build anything, even though I hate to measure and sawdust makes me cranky.
You should have a look around her site. It's so inspiring. And definitely check out my tutorial on DIY curtain rods while you are there!
Happy reading and DIY-ing, friends. And whatever you make, make it yours!
