After teasing you all with a sneak height on Instagram, I’ve eventually put together a submission to the percentage the info on the new acrylic material rods and brass hardware in our domestic workplace. Lucite, brass, and black – is there any extra glamorous mixture?!

I wish I ought to have you throughout to peer those acrylic beauties in individual because the pix don’t do them justice – between the darkish walls, the mild coming within the window, and the clear rods, it’s an extremely good tough area to picture. But I couldn’t love the contact of glam they add to this area any more than I do! [Visit Us]

Before I share the assets of the rod and hardware, I need to thank Grace from A Storied Style for the muse. The DIY educational for her acrylic drapery rods here became the leaping-off factor for my very own model. Grace found that Nationwide Plastics sells acrylic rods for a lot much less than what you could find them in someplace else. She details the different alternatives for rod types, lengths, and sizes in this publish.

I went with a 1 1/2″ cell cast acrylic rod – it values simply below $100 for one 8′ rod inclusive of tax and transport. As an FYI, the rod that I obtained became virtually 8’3″ so if you want a rod that’s precisely 8′, I might let them recognize that once ordering. Nationwide Plastics will cut the rod for you at something period you specify for no extra price.

The brass helps 1.5″ OD polished brass railing brackets ordered from Buy Railings right here – they had been sourced by Kristin of The Hunted Interior while she set up her terrific lucite rods that you could check out here. My window is quite huge, so I have three brackets – one a few inches in from each end and one within the center.

Since I needed a rod extra than 8′, I have two separate acrylic rods that be a part of inside the middle however you’d by no means comprehend it wasn’t one continuous rod for the reason that center bracket hides the joint.

I used polished brass curtain accessories which I observed at Van Dyke’s Restorer’s right here – they're the appropriate size for a one half of″ rod. For the ends of the rods, I ought to have paid a small charge to have Nationwide Plastics polish them so that the rods could be left as-is without finials but I wanted a small contact of brass at every cease.

I ended up finding 2″ brass flush cease caps from Van Dyke’s Restorer’s here, and they may be exactly what I became looking for. The internal of the end caps are just a little larger than the rod itself, so I used some double-sided duct tape to paste them onto the ends of the rod.

If you’re ordering from Van Dyke’s search for a promo code – I located a wonderful one that delivered the rate down quite a piece. And for all of you, matchy-matchy peeps accessible – be aware that the brass end of the rod supports is barely off from the brass finish of the quit caps and earrings.

It’s now not sufficient of a distinction to bother me (I most effective note it once I’m first-rate near up) however there is a small difference.

So what if that is all sounding like a touch too much work so that you can prepare? You can do one-stop purchasing and get your rods and hardware all geared up to head here (affiliate link) – you may pay a touch more. However, it’s short and easy and high high-quality stuff!

And in case you’re questioning about the drapes – they had been made (by someone with manner more stitching skills than me) with Robert Allen’s Lighten Up fabric in the Lemongrass colorway. I had the drapes made some inches longer than I usually could so they may be pulled away from the baseboard heating inside the wintry weather.

So what do you all assume? Are you into the acrylic and gold blend or not so much?

I’m loving that my new drapes placed me one step toward subsequently completing off the workplace – I’ve got my eye on a new table chair, and maybe even a new table (I’ve been stalking Craigslist for what I have in mind) and then this room might be formally DONE.
