I think this curtain rod is really cute. I love the colors they used too.
Talk about thrifty.
- Tree branch
- Spray paint
- Basic mounting brackets
Take a walk and grab a tree branch a little bit larger than your window. Trim off most small shoots and branches, leave a few for character.
Scrape up some spare change for some spray paint in your favorite accent color.
Any hardware store has basic mounting brackets for a couple of bucks. If you look hard you will probably find some around the house.
Happy hunting, but most of all have fun.
