Diy Curtain Rods – The use of found objects to decorate can save time and money. To add visual interest and organic shapes to a window treatment, turn a tree branch into a curtain rod. Unexpected use of a natural element for such a common piece of household items can turn a window of monotony into the centerpiece of a room. Find a straight branch, preferably from a deciduous tree. Keep in mind that the curtains will have to slide along the branch.
Straighter branches are more functional, while more irregular branches may seem more interesting. Start branches and leaves before sanding the branch so it is ready for painting. If there is remaining dirt of moss, wash them with a scrubbing brush. This makes the paint adhere better and will make sure that your diy curtain rods will not chip it. For a cleaner look, peel the entire bark off the branch before painting.
Choose a color of latex-based spray paint that complements your room. The latex in the paint allows it to flex which can stick to the irregular surface of the branch. If you want your diy curtain rods to stand out, use a color that contrasts with the color of the wall behind it. Paint the branch while holding the nozzle of the paint can about 1 foot away from the wood.
