    VERY NICE. About 5 years ago, I did the same thing in my family room because I couldn't find curtain rods in the length I needed them in to place on my 4 window openings. By the way, I painted the rods (pipes) in black to go with my color combination

    very sturdy, kids wont tear down the rods when they are hanging from the curtains lol, My hubby does not have a delicate touch when closing or opening them either, more than once he has dislodged the rod. This would hubby proof my living room lol. some
