DIY Lucite Curtain Rod and Greek Key Trim Curtains

I am so excited to share this DIY project with ya’ll!!  I will have a full tutorial up soon, but could not wait to show you the pictures.  I wrote about my love of lucite rods here.  However, they are ridiculously pricey.  So, taking the lead from fellow bloggers (the original was from Grace at A Storied Style), I DIY’d my own.  The brass standoffs are actually for ballet barres and the lucite is custom from a company called Nationwide Plastics out in Texas.  These pictures do not do justice to how lovely it looks in person!

I also decided to DIY myself some greek key trim curtains.  Using inexpensive Ikea curtains and greek key fabric, I created a high-end look for sooo much less.

What do you think?  I am so pleased with how they turned out!  I waited forever to do curtains on this big window because it was so big.

Stay tuned as I will have a full tutorial on how to DIY the curtain rod and the curtains!
