A Different Kind of Curtain Rod

      I devised a different kind of curtain rod for our kitchen and breakfast room. 
 Our house backs to the woods, and I like trees, of course.  So I gathered together
 bundles of thin twigs (I actually purchased them from a floral supply warehouse),
tied the ends with twine, and now they are curtain rods.  To hold them up I
bought black wrought iron shelf brackets at the hardware store. 

I had swags over the rods which I had made, but just got these
 new  valances  from the Ballard Home Design catalog. 

How do you like it?


  1. Lovely...can't imagine anything else hanging there before....I'm sorry I don't remember your other window treatments...guess I was always too busy looking "into" your beautiful home!

  2. Well that's a very nice compliment! :-)
