Hi. I wonder if you can help. I really want to make those industrial type curtain rails for my living room window – but I have no idea where to start. What sort of parts do I need? Does anyone know the exact names so I can go out and buy them?

Hi. I found this picture on pinterest. Is this what you mean?

Yes that is exactly what I want to make! Do you know what each of the parts are called?

Hi Sammy! The part against the wall is called a flange, the little part sticking out of that is a nipple, the curved bit is called an elbow, and then the rod is just a pipe. 🙂 Make sure you buy the same size for all parts, for example, 3/4 inch, 1-1/4 inch, etc. Here’s a tutorial! http://www.ishouldbemoppingthefloor.com/2016/05/diy-plumbing-pipe-curtain-rod.html
I also made a much simpler one using electrical conduit (cheaper than galvanized pipe) and pipe caps (Medina I hope it is okay to post a link to my blog here!). You can see that here: http://www.bybrittanygoldwyn.com/2016/01/make-an-industrial-conduit-pipe-curtain-rod/
