We got us these windows in the bedroom that have just had crummy, easily bent mini blinds up since we bought the house.
We found some drapes on craigslist that were being sold from a nice mid century house off 51st street, so we grabbed the lot.
Thing was, we didn't have curtain rods, or rings, but we got some rings on ebay for ultra cheap, and Julie picked em up in Round Rock, so we didn't have to even pay shipping.
Anyhoo, curtain rods seem pricey for no real reason, but galvanized plumbing pipes ain't, so to the plumbing dept we went.
The windows are kinda "L" shaped, with a spare lonely dood on a side wall. We grabbed us some couplers and tore it up, as seen in the picture tore up above. It took some planning, and that one 10 foot pipe just BARELY fit, but the curtains are up, and we can now get our swank on.
