Sarah from Cheerful Nest knew it was going to be expensive to purchase a custom rod for the mondo-sized window in her living room. Fortunately, she was able to recreate the look of industrial pipe rods from West Elm in the length she needed and the price she wanted. The guys and gals at the hardware will do most the work for you, cutting the pipe to length and rethreading it, so this is a pretty simple DIY. Basically all you have to do is paint the pieces, if so desired, and then assemble. Easy peasy!
