Found these awesome pieces that were from a stairwell. You see them all the time and I see people ask, "What are you going to plan to do with those?" Well take a look to what maybe the hottest new Trend!
We cut ( I should say my sweet friend cut these for me) and we used a double screw to attach them together. You can use any length you need but keep in mind you will need to support them with the weight of the curtains. Mine will be short because they are just for the decorative panels on the sides. I am choosing to leave them neutral because I decorate for every holiday and will add things to them as the seasons change.
After hanging up your brackets ( I used the ones from the Martha Stewart Collection because they have two holders for two rods). These will not be the moving kind of curtains on the sides. These are just for décor only. The second rod in the back will be for the actual curtains that open and close.
Getting ready to put the second layer of curtains in the back. For those of you who will be doing this, I just took the fabric and put it over the rod and safety pined it at the top....super easy!
Closer look at what it looks at the top
I used black out curtains in the bedroom. You can use anything you want! Let your imagination be your guide!
Now time to enjoy the cool and funky new curtain rods!

Be Blessed Everyone!
