Ok guys, I found an inexpensive way to add a sleek industrial feel to your home! I used galvanized pipe to make our curtain rods with no sew painters drop cloths as our curtains. I did 2 Windows, and our French doors for around $100! That’s 6 curtain panels in all! Here’s what we bought from The Home Depot or Lowe’s.
Galvanized pipe ( comes in 10ft pieces so you get them to cut lengths of your windows) I used 1″ pipe
floor flanges you’ll need 2 for each Windows
galvanized nipple 2 for each window
galvanized elbow 2 for each window. I used 3″
I also chose galvanized over bronze because the galvanized won’t rust over time like the bronze will. Just FYI.
For our curtain panels I used canvas drop clothes from Walmart. I bought 6, for my project. Make sure you wash them a few times before hanging them. Otherwise, they smell, shed everywhere, and are stiff.
I also bought drapery rings to attach curtains to for installing.
I attached a few pictures so you can see what I bought. Remember, to wipe pipe off with a good degreaser before installing.
Here’s finished product:
To get the ruffled look, just fold over 12-16″.
