I'm definitely not the first to make these, and after this tutorial, I'm hoping there will be some of you who will also tackle this DIY project. There were a few things I learned along the way, so you can learn from my mistakes!

    @ Missi...you'll have to let me know when you get it done! @ Ally...yes, it is seriously called a pipe nipple and I seriously felt uncomfortable having to type it.

    Great job Tricia. And Ally, there are loads of names like that in hardware supplies. When we first moved in our home, almost nine years ago now, I had the dilemma of finding the right hardware for our row of five windows placed close together in our sunroom so I came up with the idea (I'm sure someone else had done it even before that and I'd probably seen it and had it in the back of my mind) to use PVC pipe and fittings. After seeing my hubby use so much of it when installing our drainage plumbing that it was fresh in my mind. Even though I spray painted with an antique gold to match our chandeliers faux finish I wish I had used stained wood closet dowels in place of the pipe for a richer look.
