Allison from Golden Sycamore used Kee Klamp pipe fittings to put together a rustic looking curtain rod for her bedroom. The pipe and fittings were distressed using a unique heating method. The heating of the pipe and fittings discolors and ages the metal, giving the entire curtain rod some very unique character.
Easy way to save money! Buy cheapie curtain rods and wrap! You could choose wire, suede laces, rolled leather, sating "rat tail" cording, even cheap embroidery floss. Lovely and cheap idea for something a little different.
I have been trying to figure out our curtain situation for so long. Living in a lift with extra high ceilings and door walls have made this a challenge. After a trip to Liwe's we found inspiration using a metal PVC pipe and closet organizer facets. Can't wait for our finished product!
