industrial hardware via west elm

Choose from galvanized or black pipes and fittings to make your own industrial rods. I went with black pipes and black fittings, but the wall flange only came in silver so we ended up having to spray paint everything despite my best efforts to skip that step. I also added a 1/2" nipple (yes, it's really called that) to give a bit more spacing from the wall.
(needs some touch up paint and those screws need to go black as well)
Overall, this job took us about an hour and cost us about $25. So easy. Seriously. And West Elm wants how much? I'll use my savings to cover the rest of the windows in my home, thank you very much! You guys, if you love the industrial look, this DIY is for you. I promise, this one really is insanely easy.
On the topic of windows, do you think that a double functioning/great room (ie living/dining) has to have matching window covers just because there isn't a wall that separates the space? Help a sistah out! xo
