Rope Turned Nautical Theme Curtain Rod by Chris & Amy

It will be two years next month that Chris and I moved into our home, and for two years we have not had curtains in our "formal" living room. I changed my mind on the paint color a million times and did not know how I wanted the room decorated. As I was putting pieces together the room organically evolved into a shabby chic/coastal vibe. Our window treatments were last on the list and I was determined to put something up. I was inspired by a photo I found from vintagerevival.blogspot.com. First I spray painted all the hardware with leftover spray paint. Chris put the hooks up for me:) We put the rope up first so we could make sure it was even on both sides. Afterwards, we fed the curtains through the rope and tied the sides around boat cleats!!! After two years its finally complete and we couldnt be happier:)









Supplies: Hooks (Home Depot) $ 12
Rope (Home Deopt) $ 12
Boat Cleats (online) $10
Curtains (Ikea) $40
Total: $74


Hope you enjoy! Thanks for stopping by: Amy & Chris

  2. That's such a clever idea! I like how it turned out and I'm sure you are happy to finally have curtains up! It takes me forever to pick out curtains too, but they really do finish off the room! *Says the person who doesn't have curtains in her living room yet
