If you're here often, you may remember me mentioning that I whittled on my birthday. Yep, whittled.
You may also remember that I had a nasty storm come through my area this winter, and it took down part of my tree. I used up all the tiny branches to make winter boxes, but I still had a large branch left.
It was destined to go into my fire pit.
I was staring at my curtains in my dining room. A boring curtain rod with a scarf that doesn't even touch the floor.
Then I saw this on this Internet.
Hm, I can do that!
So I sawed off the branches, leaving a few stubs. I whittled the bark off, and began shaping it.
I spray-primed and spray painted it white.
After re-mounting it, I bought another scarf to make sure the the bottoms pooled elegantly on the floor.
Of course, it's not as bold as the picture from the source, but I don't want it bold.
I love my dining room because it's a bit modern, a bit classy, and a bit rustic.
These curtain rods bring modern (being stark white), and of course elegant rustic to my dining room.
I'm smitten <3
See? Not in-your-face-noticeable. Just a touch of whimsy. Just how I like it =)
