A simple template ensures you hang the curtain rod at the same height for every window, and that your rods won’t be crooked. The one above was made using a couple pieces of cardboard and saved time otherwise spent measuring from the corner of the windows.
Allison from Golden Sycamore used Kee Klamp pipe fittings to put together a rustic looking curtain rod for her bedroom. The pipe and fittings were distressed using a unique heating method. The heating of the pipe and fittings discolors and ages the metal, giving the entire curtain rod some very unique character.
