Drawer Knob

Drawer Knob This is one DIY curtain rod idea that you can do using items that you probably already have at home. An electrical conduit was used here for the rod. The finials were knobs found at a second hand store. You might already have some with nice designs so you can probably use those. If you can't find a way to screw the knob to the conduit, insert a piece of wood and then use said wood to adhere the knob. Hot gluing should work, too, but you will have a hard time removing the curtains.
