Yesterday, I shared the DIY Playful, Modern and Mom Approved curtains that I made for the Big Boy Room. Of course, the look wouldn’t truly be playful and modern without a fun curtain rod, right?!?!
So I went in search for a playful, long, (10 FOOT!) and affordable curtain rod, with the vision of an industrial pipe. It didn’t take long to find these super fun industrial curtain rods at West Elm. I was immediately smitten!
However, I was quickly bummed at the price tag. I mean come on, I adore my child, but really don’t want to spend $100 bucks on a curtain rod for his room! Now you know, I have definitely taken the plunge when it comes to West Elm purchases with my chandelier and striped shower curtain, but this one seemed pretty DIY-able.
Yep, sure enough all I had to do was a little online searching and found some pretty amazing knock offs (like this– with some great tips too on how to get the parts even cheaper).
Come on, if these girls could do it, I could do it too!
This was such an easy DIY and cost a fraction of what it would have cost to purchase these! Just a quick trip to Home Depot and I had my supplies:
Wall Anchors: these babies are heavy
Beer: 1 each for your husband while installing
Installation is definitely a two person job, and I laid on some extra charm to convince the honey to install after work one night.
Oh and a beer helped too! 🙂
But the finished product is exactly what I had envisioned!
This room is almost done! So what do you think?
My kind of plumbing, XOXO-
