2×2 cut to 3″ blocks
7/8″ Spade bit
Black spray paint
White pvc pipe 1/2″x10′
Find the center at the top of your block by using your speed square and drawing a line from one corner to the opposite corner. Repeat this step again and you will have an X drawn on your square.
Attach your 7/8” Spade bit to your drill and drill a hole in the center of your X.
Drill down 1 1/2″
Cut your pvc pipe to size. (We used an old saw we had sitting around. PVC can dull your blades so don’t use your nice saw. You can purchase a specific blade for pipes if you choose) Most curtain rod extend past the window on both sides a few inches but use your judgment here.
Spray paint your pipe.
Glue your 2×2 block onto each end of your dried black rod with liquid nails or another glue of equal strength.
Once dry, hang rods on your wall with curtain rod hooks.
Keep in mind that you will need to use hooks to hang your curtain as the rod and block will not separate after being glued.
