DIY Industrial Curtain Rods

Curtain rods are one of those things that can really use up your decorating budget fast - especially if you need extra long ones. I love the look of industrial style curtain rods but not the price ($99 at West Elm - yikes). It turns out they are pretty simple to make just using parts from Lowes.

    This is way cooler than a plain old shower curtain rod. And I bet it's sturdier than them too

    @ Carrie @ Lovely Etc. Even better idea, then you can put it right where you stand and reach without having to deal with things in the way! Coolio! I'm passing this on to my daughter. A tip to those who try this, better hit a stud.

    I could easily see this in a contractors office, or a plumbers office, or even a teenage boys room. Maybe one of the old warehouses made into apartments. Very NICE!

    Someone else said what I was thinking. I think it's great when people use their creativity to avoid buying packaged products. The industrial look wouldn't work in our house, and we needed a rod that was 107 inches. We used closet doweling. It was cheaper
