Introduction: DIY Curtain Rods and Brackets

About: Favorite color=orange. Self-taught techie. Fabric hoarder. Pinterest addict. I enjoy: crafting, blog-stalking, planning/organizing, shopping for unnecessary things, being outside, and playing sports.

I made my own curtain rods and brackets using materials I found at a hardware store! And, I was able to save over $200 in making them myself!

Materials:

10ft electrical conduit
1 Conduit Cutter
2 Conduit clips for every 1 curtain rod
2 1" "L" Brackets with screws for every 1 curtain rod
Metal Screws
Wingnuts

Directions:

Step 1: Determine the diameter that you want your curtain rods to be
Step 2: Purchase the electrical conduit in 10ft lengths, at the desired diameter
Step 3: Purchase all other hardware and tools
Step 4: Assemble the Curtain Rod Brackets using the conduit clips, "L" brackets, metal screws, and wingnuts. See attached picture for example.
Step 5: Cut the electrical conduit using the cutter to desired length for your window
Step 6: Mount the brackets at desired positioning on your wall.  
Step 6: Attach curtains to rods, and hang.
