The best DIY double industrial curtain rods is where it all stared for me as a blogger. It’s hard to believe that 2 years have already passed since I made these gems! I thought that its high time for an update on the condition after 2 full years of use.
Firstly, I’d like to say thank you to the thousands of people who have made these wonderful curtain rods for their own home. I could have never imagined that when I came up with this idea so many people would embrace it. As it stands now my DIY double curtain rods have been shared on social media over 100,000 times collectively. Pinterest has been a huge part of that success with my originally posted pictures (circa 2015) being shared and saved over 70,000 times.
The overall durability of these curtain rods are amazing! I have little to no wear on the rods themselves and NO sagging whatsoever. My only complaint is that I wish I had set the rods a little further away from each side of the window. Other than that they remain my favorite DIY ever.
Unfortunately, there are people who have “stolen” this idea for profit. For one set of their pipe fitting kits + shipping will cost you over $75.00!! That’s 3 times more then my DIY. It’s often said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I don’t believe this to be true when you are essentially ripping people off. My original idea for the DIY double industrial curtain rods was purely out of necessity and to save me money. Can you tell I’m a bit miffed? As much as I want to divulge the egregious website that is doing this, I will hold that to myself until the owner and I can work things out.
The price for all of the parts (including up to 20 ft of pipe) will cost you about $28.00 for one 10 ft double curtain rod. Here is the link to my original tutorial.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding the fabrication of my DIY double industrial curtain rods.
Have you made these curtain rods? If so, I’d love to see some pictures of how they turned out. Cheers!
