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