DIY Extra Long Curtain Rods, 2 Ways
1 – DIY Wooden Dowel Curtain Rods and Matching Brackets
I actually made these curtain panels and curtain rod for our last home, and I was SO sad to see them go! I bought a long wooden dowel and wooden brackets at Home Depot. Then I made a custom stain with wood stain and chalk paint.
The panels are actually drop cloths dyed blue! This whole thing really couldn’t be more budget-friendly.
2 – DIY Industrial Pipe Curtain Rods

And don’t forget to watch my quick tip for hanging perfectly level curtain rods every single time:
