Quick Design DIY – Freshen Up A Doorway

This project will take you NO time at all and is inexpensive!  Dress up a doorway with any shower curtain you can get on the market!

What you need:

Metal (or wood) Dowel Rod

2-3 Screw Hooks (?)

1 Dollar Store (or any) shower curtain with button holes for shower curtain hooks

How to do it:

Measure your doorway and pick the appropriate size dowel rod for it.

Hold dowel rod over doorway and center – placing dowel approximately 3″ above the door frame.

Mark 2 inches in from either end – this is where you will place your screw hooks.

Screw hooks into wall with the loop facing up towards ceiling to cup the dowel rod.

Run the dowel rod through the shower curtain button holes (where you’d usually put hooks)

Hang curtain by placing the dowel rod in the hooks.   Voila!

You can get creative and make a tieback with ribbon, string, rope etc by putting nails or tacks in the wall to hold back, or purchase curtain tiebacks from Lowes, etc if you want to spend a few extra dollars.  Have fun with it!
