When we moved into our new home, I had a long list of to-dos, DIY projects, and furniture to buy. We grabbed a few new pieces and spruced them up – like our IKEA Tarva hack. However, my favorite project thus far has been making our own copper curtain rods. Don’t worry, it’s even easier than it sounds!
Initially, we were going to purchase a ten foot copper pipe and cut it using a copper pipe cutter (finally picked one up! Yay!). But, T. brought up our potential move next year and realized that more than likely, we’ll have different sized windows.
That’s when we had a brilliant idea. Instead of getting one copper pipe and cutting it down to size, we could buy two copper pipes (in 1/2″ and 3/4″) and create a traditional sliding rod.
We grabbed everything to make our copper curtain rods at Home Depot in one trip…and for under $30!
These are fairly easy to hang, but you might want some help! Having four hands is going to be a lot easier than two.
Not so bad, right?
