Okay, so I have to apologize that I did not take before pictures, Sorry!! Anyway, I needed a really long curtain rod, but did not want to spend tons of money on it. You know how I am, I choose to say frugal and not cheap, but I do have my critics, haha.
So, to make my rod, I bought two dowel Rods and two finials. I used a nail and some Gorilla Wood Glue to attach my dowel rods together. Once that was dry, I attached the ends and brought out the spray paint, you know I love it!!
A couple of coats later, I had a super cute curtain rod, that hardly cost any money at all.
I know the pictures are not great, but to be honest I was too lazy this morning to take the curtain off of the rod for a better picture.
