Around here | a little DIY project

I was in the unlikeliest of places when I found some curtain rods with antler finials... Wal-mart, can you believe it, they were $15 a piece and I automatically thought, GOLD! I have seen such amazing curtain rod finials that cost a fortune, how cool if I could make my own? 

Would they turn out? It was worth the $30 bucks total to find out, so home with me they came!

I decided to gold with a metallic gold craft paint instead of spray paint because:


not smelly like spray paint


no ventilation needed (winter friendly)


dries SUPER fast


not a super shiny finish



stick the screw part into a cardboard box for easy access to all the nooks and crannies plus drop clothe and easy clean up! 

These turned out so great, I love the little touch it adds to my room! They look like they cost me a fortune, but truth be told, the rods, gold paint and the actual curtains for the room cost me

UNDER $100!

Score! :>
