STEP 1– GATHER SUPPLIES
Electrical conduit – Pick out the straightest pieces of electrical conduit (aka EMT Conduit, or Electrical Metal Tube Conduit), you can find.
STEP 2– CUT CONDUIT
Cut the electrical conduit pipes to the required size using pipe cutters.
STEP 3– PAINT CONDUIT
– Use a Scotch Brite scrubber pad to sand the conduit pieces. – Spray conduit along with the coupling, brackets, and finials with some primer. This is the one we like.
STEP 4– ASSEMBLE THE ROD
Put the conduit and coupling together and set it all up on the mounted brackets, with the screws pointing up and back towards the wall.
STEP 5– ADDING FINIALS
– Using a utility knife and working over a cutting board or surface that is safe to cut on, shorten a cork. – Drill a pilot hole and screw the finial to the cork.
STEP 6– HANG UP THE CURTAINS!
Before putting up the curtains on the rod, add some paste wax with a cloth or paper towel to the top half of the curtain rod to help make sure the grommets slide nice and smooth every time you open and close the curtains.
