I paid a hefty price for the two living room curtain rods: $45 each.
The color of the rods is pewter which looks like a dark charcoal grey installed on the paler grey walls.
Matching rings at Penney’s were on sale at 10 for $30. I need 20, so that’d be $60. Too much. (Waaaaay too much.)
JoAnn was having 50% off curtain accessories plus I had an additional 20% off discount coupon on the whole order. So for less than $15 I bought 21-40 mm nickel curtain rings.
Of course they were way too bright so I lined them up on a piece (or 2) of cardboard
and sprayed them metallic charcoal.
After a few mishaps like dropping the whole piece on the wet ground before the paint was totally dry, I have coordinated rings at a bargain price.
Are you watching for bargains this year?
