SPLURGE.vs.SAVE.

A while back, when I was looking for affordable curtain rod options I decided to go the DIY route.  I was able to use these knobs and rods to come up with $15 rods WITH finials.
 
As I was perusing Anthro's new arrival section as I frequently do, I came across these babies... 
Great minds think a like Anthro.....

These finials alone are $38 for the pair.  I paid $4 each for the knobs.  Once you tack on the price of the curtain rod you are easily near $100 for one window, my DIY was under $15.  Let's be real, I'm sure the quality of these is far superior to my DIY but there is an option for everyone.  If you plan on staying in your home for a long time I say make the investment, but if you are renting or only want them until you grow tired (ME) then I say go the DIY route. 
 

What do you think? Splurge or save?

  2. I'm typically a saver...unless I know it's going to be something I'm hanging onto for a long time. And your diy looks worth far more than $15!
