DIY Acrylic Drapery Rods

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.  An elegance is effortlessly ushered into a room with their presence.  Take a look at these inspiration photos.  Love the square rod!  And the brass hardware? Swoon."

Grace was able to figure out a way to create this look on a budget - head over to her blog to see what she did! It's genius.

  2. You are a lifesaver! I am working on a project for myself and I really, really wanted the lucite rods but just couldn't afford them. This is such a great option and I also love the look of the bare end. I'm going to be contacting this company today! Very happy!

  3. Kristen, I am a huge fan of your blog and have fallowed your blog for a long time. I graduated with my a.s. degree in interior design and stopped when I had my first child. I have some friends that are moving into a tailor. They have asked me to help them remodel and update it. Long story short, I haven't done a ton of work and would love some tips. They want to paint their cabinets white and do a glaze over top. how would you suggest to paint the cabinets, the doors are real wood, but the actual cabinets are the fake wood. Do you just sand and prime them? And what's the best way to glaze, I haven't done this before. I hope this is ok that I'm asking you all these questions. Thanks got taking the time to read this and I would love your advise.
    Thank you, Lyndee
