What> "I used PVC pipes to hang drapes. A local drapery shop wanted $225 for two wood drapery rods that were 2 inches in diameter and 9 feet long. I'd never pay that price! Instead, I picked up two lengths of 1⅞-inch-diameter PVC pipe, used four wood end plugs as finials, and sanded and painted them both. They cost only $10 and look just like the real thing."
