Six months ago all of us moved to a new house which was a “home that needs repair” regarding Six weeks ago, we all finally switched our focus on our living room area that has been ignored while we handled other tasks. I think install brushed gold curtain rod will be a great idea!
Our family room offers 2 big west-facing windows and also a huge sliding door across the same wall. Because of the intensive sun rays from the sunlight, I desired to liven up the home windows for blocking of sunshine and also putting style to a dull room.
We have several articles on my blog site concerning DIY drapery and also handrail hardware, therefore i was not starting with damage for this job. Nevertheless, it was the very first time I utilized shower curtain rings as drapery rings. I purchased Three packages for $1.59 each at Target, that offered Nine rings for every panel.
To produce an eyelet for the drapery hooks, I threaded washers through the shower rings. Purchase them at any hardware store.
I utilized drapery hooks to install the drapes with the eyelet produced by the washer. Low-cost and found on amazon. The drapes possess a built-in system for attaching them to a rod using a pole pocket, back tab or with rings/hooks (just like I did!).
For drapery, I used the same “AINA” 100% linen panels that you could buy at IKEA for $60 set. Definitely the most effective buy I have discovered. Plus they appear very long so that you can hem to length, if required.
For brackets I used these polished brass.
For the brass rods, I visited a local raw metal supply. I considered some other rods, just like the property metal set from Restoration Hardware, but I don’t think those are generally solid brass. These types of tubes tend to be hollow, but they have a heavy duty wall thickness and also the metal is 100% brass. I selected a 1.5″ diameter, but they are found in any size. They have a gorgeous, a little bit worn patina. They may be unpolished/unlacquered so they will probably be easy to jazz up using metal polish or maybe will age in time, if desired. Brushed gold curtain rod costs vary depending on diameter and also length. I paid for $207 to get a 77″ rod and also 54″ rod. My resource has dispenses from coast to coast.
Place it all together, and bam !! BEAUTIFUL brass drapery for a great price (thinking about the quality). For extra light filtering, we included affordable bamboo roman shades from Home Depot.
A part of my cause of selecting brass was due to exactly how beautifully brass sets with a navy blue backdrop.
The AINA curtains in “white-colored” are actually an attractive Ivory.
I have not made the decision whether or not to cap the ends, however they look wonderful either way!
The layered texture really does so much for this space.
And also the clear rings just float over the brass.
Thank you for reading!
