Recently we redid a room in our house. I found some great fun curtains, but I couldn’t believe the price for curtain rods! CRAZY!! Tim suggested a piece of copper tubing that we got for free at a garage sale. We bought a copper cap for each end and my son polished it. I love it and it adds some a little shine to the room.
Use your imagination! I’ve seen branches that make great rods also, either natural or painted.
