$12 This was the ticket for my gazilian window. DIY Curtain Rods. Beats the heck out of the nearly 300 I spent on the rod in our dinning room. Came out to about $12 a rod, using the great finials from Lowes. 3/2014 - as an update they have worn really well. I primed them before and painted with oil bronze spray paints. If they do get a little nick I just take a sharpie to it.
