Happy New Year!!!! Welcome 2012! 
I want to get a start on this year by spending time working on our house, since we kind of ran out of steam.

I had these curtains rods in our bedroom at our old house and knew I didn’t want to leave them behind. So I switched them out before we started to show our house. Fast forward a year and we’re in our new home. 6 months after moving in and they still weren’t up in the master. I’ve decided that it’s time for that to change. 
However I did have one problem, I wanted matching holdbacks for our new Master Suite, and couldn’t find them anywhere. I was lucky to have purchased an extra matching curtain rod for the Master Bath… but decided the finals should be used to make matching holdbacks.

Materials:
screw gun, set of holdbacks, mounting hardware, 2 finials from curtain rod, hot glue gun and sticks (Hubster vetoed my Expoy idea)

Materials Needed

Materials Needed

Directions: (Feel free to skip steps 3-6)
Step 1: Unscrew finials from curtain rod and holdbacks 
Step 2: Realize that the screw in the finials are not compatible with the hole in the holdbacks
Step 3: Using the hot glue gun, glue the finials into the hold backs and allow to set
Step 4: Have Hubster attempt to screw holdbacks into the wall, tell you he cannot since the finials are in the way, but insist that he must figure out a way because you absolutely cannot glue finials into position after the fact. 🙂
Step 5: Watch Hubster get really upset.
Step 6: Pick at the glue and pry finials free.
Step 7: Watch Hubster easily mount the holdbacks onto the wall
Step 8: Glue finials into holdbacks. 
Step 9: Enjoy your new custom holdbacks…

I’ll show a pic of the mounted once I finish our Master Suite and am ready to reveal it all!

Did you make a New Year’s Resolution?
