I needed a long curtain rod (120 inches to be exact) but didn't want to spend the money for one that size.
As I was walking through the electrical supply department at Lowes I came up with this idea.
Take a 12 foot conduit pole.
A can of Valspar Gloss Spray Paint.
A piece of wooden dowel and old door knobs you've been hanging on to.
This is what you get...
The whole thing cost me less than $10 for 2 windows.
