Entry #2622, July 6, 2013

 

Curtains play a vital role at home. It doesn’t only filter the sunlight and add privacy but also enhance the beauty of your home interior. The curtains can be a highlight of your interior design and will dictate the general ambiance of a certain area at home.

With curtains, your interior theme will be emphasized. This is very important especially if you want to do a quick makeover of your home interior. But it’s not only the curtain textile can make a difference. You can do something about the curtain rod too. For instance, using tree branches as your curtain rods will definitely command attention.

Procedure

  1. Prepare all the materials needed. Make sure that you have the right tools for safety and accuracy.
  2. Carefully select the branches you gathered. Trim them so that tiny twigs will be removed. These tiny twigs may cause damage to your curtains if not cut.
  3. After the trimming, use the sandpaper to smoothen the surface of your tree branches. Do the sanding lightly so that the natural looks of the branches will remain.
  4. Cut 2 small pieces of the branch that you’re not using. Screw these pieces of branches into the wall as mounting mechanism.
  5. Loop your desired curtain in the branch before hanging.
