When I shared my living room and dining room progress a few days ago, I mentioned the need for curtains in those rooms to soften things up. I have actually had some inexpensive white curtains from Ikea for several months just waiting to be hung. Which can’t happen until I have some curtain rods to hang them on.
I am lucky enough to have a nice big bay window in the room. Unfortunately that means I need a nice big curtain rod to go with it. I definitely do not want to block any light in the room which means I need to hang the curtains high and wide so as not to block the actual window. This picture is a great visual of what I mean.

Which means I need a curtain rod that is between 110 and 120 inches long. If you have ever shopped for a curtain rod that long, you know they are insanely expensive. And if you have read this blog much, you have probably gathered than I am diametrically opposed to décor that is insanely expensive. But I am also opposed to décor that is ugly. Which pretty much always adds up to a DIY project.
So I went in search for some awesome DIY curtain rod ideas and blogland surely did not disappoint. Can’t wait to give one or two of these a try.

Wow, there is a lot of creativity out there. And I love that all of these curtain rods can be created with items from the hardware store for cheap. Off to Lowes I go!
What about you – ever DIYed a curtain rod? Or just found an amazing deal on one? Which idea is your favorite? I love them all but I am really crushing on that first industrial style version right now.
