The walls will only hold so much, but you also want to add some cool features and touches to the place - at least I do!
Our walk in closet had a door that opened inwards, literally blocking half of the closet, making it inaccessible! Made no sense to me... so I had to come up with an easy solution!
I ran (I mean, not literally, but I was pretty stoked to get going on this solution I had for our closet door) to Home Depot. My home away from home! I picked up some flanges, a 4ft steel pipe, some elbow fittings, and was set! All that was left was to buy the curtain clips and thrift a cute curtain!
I centered the 4ft pipe over the doorway, made some marks of where I wanted the flanges to rest, screwed in one flange to the wall, twisted on the 90’ elbow piece into place, and then twisted in the steel pipe into one end.
This is where I had Jake help me hold that piece and slide on the clips onto the steel pipe on the open side! As I pieced together the 2nd flange and elbow piece - same way I did with the first, be sure you DO NOT screw that into the wall - first twist the connected flange and elbow piece onto the pipe before sitting the flange flush with the wall and THEN screwing it into the wall.
Done and done.
What I love about using this piping with the clips is that I can change out the curtains so easily, I could literally use any material or fabric and use a cool deal over method, or do what I am currently doing and using two panel curtains I thrifted at goodwill!
