I saw this genius idea over at "A Storied Style" and had to share the idea with you guys here. I know you will like it; plus, I just want to remember it for the future!
She writes, "I have loved acrylic curtain rods for years (name is interchangeable with lucite drapery rods). They add a bit of sparkle to a room, and I think they are so simple and beautiful.

However, they have always been something I put out of my mind because of budget. A quick visit to this site, and your mind reels at the cost: 8 foot 2″ acrylic rod $550 + pair of endcaps $195 = $745 FOR ONE ROD!! Eek.
