I promised that all these Pinterest challenges wouldn’t be about food…so I will keep that promise (even though it’s sooo hard lol). Here’s a DIY that will help anyone while renting their apartment or home. It’s an easy way to add a little character to your space while maintaining the rules of your lease.
Pinterest Project #5
Do-It-Yourself Alternatives to Traditional Store Bought Curtain Rods found on Remodelaholic.com
I wanted to add curtains to the rooms (bedroom, living room, and den) in our new place because I feel it completes the room and brings everything together. I used this option because 1) drilling holes in the wall is a pain and 2) I don’t want to have to fill them in when we move out.
I’m glad someone thought of this because it was super easy and a quick afternoon project.
It just so happened that the large nickel command strip matched the curtain rod I bought for the living room.
For a little glam in my office, I spray painted, the regular white hooks and black curtain rod, gold.
I plan on doing the one in the bedroom as well but haven’t gotten around to it yet.
Medium Black Curtain Rods – $6.99 x2 = $13.98
Large Silver Curtain Rod= $8.99
Cream Curtain= $9.99
Tan Sheer Curtain= $6.99
Spray Paint= $0 already had
White Command Hooks= Box for $6.30
Silver Command Hooks= $5.98 x 2 = $11.96
The thing I like most about this project is that I can use these materials over again after replacing the strips on the back of the hooks. Win-win and no holes in the wall. Have you done a home decor DIY? Let us know if you have or are planning to!
See you next time!
