One of the future projects on my home-remodel bucket list is to redo my porch. The porch sits on the back of my house in a nice little enclosed room with windows that can be opened. Its not heated or air conditioned, and the door locks only from the inside, so I’ve mostly used it as a catchall entry room.
When I first moved in, I installed new indoor/outdoor carpet and added DIY curtain rods and curtains to freshen it up.

I went looking for metal pipe at my local home improvement store and found the perfect 1/2″ thick pipe that was $1.50 for 12 feet. Hooks to hold the pipe were $0.60 for a package of 4. I left the store with everything that I needed for under $5! The key to the project is walking around with 12 foot pipe and not accidentally bumping it into anything..
Here’s how I hung the curtains:

In addition to fashion and home decor, my biggest passion in life is football. It’s the just the best, and explains why I accomplish nothing on the weekends from August to February.
One of my favorite players, JJ Watt recently posted a picture of his defensive player of the year (should have been MVP) award with an awesome rustic wooden flag hanging in the background.
Since it was a non-football season Saturday, I decided making one that looked like it would be my weekend project.
