Easy DIY Window Treatment Hardware Hack

Great ideas from The Homemade Home on how to make some rustic looking curtain rods. I love the color! And it adds a little flair to the normally unnoticed rods in your home.


All you need are copper pipes, measuring tape, and a pipe cutter and you can have your own custom hardware at a fraction of the cost.

According to The Homemade Home,

In the piping section of your home improvement store, grab up a pipe cutter, end caps, brackets, and a pipe {sized in thickness to what you will need.} After you choose your pipe, head over to the window treatments department and grab up some hanging hooks. {make sure the hanging hooks-I guess that’s the right word???-will fit nicely over the pipe. You can always do a rod pocket for your curtains as well.We just like the hooks.}

Deciding where your brackets will go on the wall, eyeball it and screw them onto the wall.  Cut your pipe according to the length you will need. Pipe cutters are simple to work: simply insert the pipe, tighten like a vice, and twist and tighten as you go. Just like above. Turn it until it snaps off at the correct length you need. Then simply slide it into place on the wall.

And depending on what color hooks you want, you can either buy em, or spray paint em!

i LOVE spray paint. Lifesaver.

When they are dry, place them on the rod, cap off the ends with the end caps, and place the panels on the window.

Anyway, happy home renovation, yall!
