    Above are the lovely West Elm’s take on the Industrial Curtain Rod. Thing is, I don’t really think they’re worth over 70+ US Dollars before taxes. Do you? In this blog, I’ll tell you how to get two of these rods, in your custom color & dimensions for under 20 dollars. If you’re doing the easy math, that’s less than 10 dollars a curtain rod! It’s fast, easy and the end results are pretty stunning.

    WHAT YOU WILL NEED FOR YOUR INDUSTRIAL CURTAIN RODS

    1/2″ Copper Tubbing Cut to the length you need.
    2 Flanges per curtain rod
    2 Elbow tubbing per rod
    Spray Paint
    Screws To Hang
    2 Joining Adapter

    We cut our rod to 36″ In length as that’s what we needed, and with the same piece of 1/2″ copper tubbing we cut two 1″ pieces that is between the elbow and the screwed end. Make sense? If you cannot cut these pieces at home, you can have all the cuts made at your local hardware store. In this case, it was Home Depot. See our quick video on how everything fits perfectly together. Pretty self explanatory, but just in case.
