Do you remember my brother Jon and his wife Kori's beautiful home? They had a long window that needed a curtain rod and their solution was genius so I had to share!
This is a metal Gas Pipe that they found at a Plumbing supply store. You can get a pipe up to 20 feet long! They then took the pipe to Ace Hardware to have them cut it to the desired length and thread the end so they could put a cap on it. The pipe did have some lettering written down the length of it but that is nothing that a can of spray paint won't fix! The only other thing you will need is some curtain hardware to hang the rod.
See how cool the end cap looks?
Like I said Genius!
And since I was taking pictures of their home anyway, I snapped a couple of their kitchen. They recently replaced the backsplash and countertops and it looks fabulous!
The countertops are Quartzite - looks like marble but it's not as delicate.
