I got this beautiful quilt that was handmade by a church friend at a silent auction earlier this summer. I finally figured out where I wanted to hang it, but I didn’t have a way to hang it. I didn’t really want to spend money, so I started searching the house and sheds for something that would work. I found 2 curtain rod hangers, but no curtain rod. Eventually, I realized I could use bamboo! We have a little bamboo forest in our back yard that is full of free curtain rods 🙂
My super hubby cut me down a piece of bamboo the perfect length for the quilt, and the perfect thickness to work with the hangers I had found. So for zero $$ I was able to hang the amazing quilt!
It can be so tempting to just run out and buy things new. A simple way to save money is to get creative with what you already have! This little project saved me about $20. It’s not much, but every little bit helps 🙂 I may change it out for a real rod later on down the road, but for right now I’m content with bamboo.
