How To: Make a Everlasting Curtain Rod

My sweet girl Marley (our pet) likes to lay underneath the window sill and she sometimes tugs on the curtain while getting into her comfort mode. After too many tugs, the curtain rod eventually snapped. I needed a good and sturdy solution FAST.  

Shopping for a curtain rod is as exciting as making toast, so I decided to try something new. I found a economical and industrial style at the local hardware store and just love it. If you also need a sturdy curtain rod, here's how to make one!

Everlasting Curtain Rod: 
Supplies you may need- Conduit Piping (They usually come in 10' lengths), Pipe cutters (most hardware stores will cut the conduit for you), Screws, Spray Paint (your color of choice), 3/4" Screw Plates, 3/4" Corners (found in the electrical section), 3/4"x 1" Threaded Extentions.
Tools you may need: Screwdriver, Hammer, Screw gun, Pencil, Tape measure, Level

Directions: attatch all pieces shown in the diagram, spray paint entire rod with your color of choice, insert curtain panels, screw into wall, and enjoy!


  1. How did you attach the pieces?

    1. I just twisted the ends together and since the pipe metal is soft, it creates treads and locks pretty tight. If you really are worried about the strength, you can add some apoxy glue.

      Good Luck:)

  2. I was suggested this website by my cousin. I am not sure whether this
    post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about
    my difficulty. You are amazing! Thanks!
