I had to take my curtains article down temporarily. Today after I figured how to VERY EASILY cut the poles (and no I did not use a steak knife LOL, I used a metal jig saw blade and it cut like butter) I went to put my finials on and they did not fit. WHAAAAAAT? Are you kidding me? I go back to the chair tip package and they say they were 5/8ths of an inch and the pole says it is 1/2 inch so you would think that the tips would slide right on over the ends of the poles with an 1/8 of an inch to spare right?
Riiiiiiiight…keep on dreaming people. They don’t make DIY too easy these days. I am pretty sure the next size chair tip was 1-1/2 inches and that was way too big so I have to use what I have to get what I want so I had to think, think, oh … thats a song isn’t it? LOL Well atleast I am in a good mood about it.
I cut a rectangular slit in the rubber. It cut like butter. I then squeezed it into the hole to see if it would fit. Barely.
You can see my paint smudges clearer than you can see the slit
I guess once the curtain is on there you won’t see the muck up at all. It will just have to remain like this until I figure it out.
I took the tutorial down because there were a few things that need to be changed and I don’t have time to do it right now. I have to take my neighbor out to dinner for his birthday…and I don’t wanna hear no smart remarks from the peanut gallery either. The man just turned 89. LOL
I could so stay at home and blog all day long if it paid me more than what my job pays me. Operative words…more than. Hmmmph, I pointed that out as if I get paid anything to blog. No my dears…unfortunately I don’t. No money, no free samples, no sponsors 😦
