A PB Knock Off....

This is a new rod I bought @ Lowe's...They are double rods...It can hold a curtain and a shear...

  • Screaming Good Idea****You could hang just about anything from it...A fun garland, a string of photos, or valance straight across with an initial...I could go on and on...The possibilities are endless...

It is a knock off of a Pottery Barn rod I had seen in the December issue...I wanted to just do roman shades in this area...But Mr. Screaming Meme wanted a say...I guess, why not? ;) He does reside here...

I decided to go with a minimal look...The rod has classic detailing...I didn't want to have to change all the rods in the room {at least, not at once}, since it is a Great Room...My Great Room is one BIG room...The kitchen, living room, and breakfast nook area {so large...I made it my dining room}...I painted the whole space the same color...You could easily paint it 2 or 3 of a similar shade...I fiddled with it and decided that I liked the same color through out the area...




Still dusty from sitting on the shelf all those months, patiently waiting to be purchased...I'll dust you off and make you shine, Pretty Girl!












Guess what, Mr. Screaming Meme? I am taking down those faux wood shades and putting them in the attic...I have plans for this space...Yes, I always get my way...One way or another ....;)












Check back...I am going to REVEAL my curtains, that are actually cheap sheets...Shhh!!!!!!! ;)

XoXo, Screaming Meme

Rods were purchased @ Lowe's $25.00- $36.00

Hi there! :) Thanks for the visit tonight. I am all about the idea of hanging sheets as curtains...very cool! I recently hopped onto the drop cloth curtain bandwagon. Love it! :) Nice to *meet* you. (I have family in Katy, by the way) :)

Jan @ bobbypinsboardwalk said...

Yes, I saw those too. I really love them. It will make things so much easier in the future. Of course, I didn't buy them because I still had the old hardware, which is more difficult to work with, but cheaper than buying all new. I look forward to seeing what you're going to hang!

I happened across your blog and found that you used sheets like I do as curtains. Such a great and cheap trick. I'm really liking your new slipcovers. Just maybe I will try too :)
