DIY Wooden Curtain Rods

Hello my dear friends! I'm so excited to share another weathered wood project with you! It thrills me to see other bloggers enjoying my products. I just feel so humbled to be in this position. So my friends from 2 Bees in a Pod  said they wanted to give Weatherwood a try...but I had no idea this awesomeness was what they had in mind. 


MATERIALS


  • Weatherwood #1 Reclamation Stain
  • Broom handle
  • Wooden rod ends
  • 80 grit sanding block
  • Rod holders

Simply stain wood according to the directions: sand wood with 80 grit sand paper. Make sure the wood is opened up. Stain using a foam brush, make sure to drench the wood with stain. Do not wipe off the excess. And remember, with Weatherwood stains the wood species determines the final wood color.  


Allow the wood to dry and it will result in weathered color. You can seal the wood if it's going to be in a high touch area, like furniture, flooring and cabinetry. Curtain rods should be a-ok!


I'll let you check out 2 Bees in a Pod for her instructions on how to assemble the curtain rods. 


You could do two short rods like she did, or use the same tutorial and broom stick to create a long curtain rod, that's just up to you! Make sure you link up with them on social and check out 2 Bees in a Pod's other projects too!
