I finally did it and I am so excited! I saw this rope curtain rod from Vintage Revivals and I have been dying to do this in our living room. Our living room just didn't look complete with our bare windows and I have been trying to come up with a creative idea for a curtain rod for this room.
tree branch curtain rods in our master bedroom, but I was looking for something different here, and this was just the thing :-))
Now, we have a finished room! It was so easy and so much cheaper than buying an expensive curtain rod! The rope we purchased at Lowes for .58 cents a foot, the boat cleat was from the marine shop for $10 bucks and then we purchased 5 of the long eye bolts for a little over $1 each.
The curtains were the most expensive part...Target for $29 for a pair.
