DIY Bungs and curtain rods

haha I know it sounds weird but we are remodeling and curtain rods are expensive! I made 2 for $20 and thought I would share.
First photo is the end of a finished rod(unless you want to paint it)

We need to be able to remove the ends to change the curtains, first you just need to cut a piece of steel the same size as the inside of the tube you are using, we used 1" OD 14 gauge tube. I used a 1" hole saw on 14 gauge plate to get a circle about the right size, then ground it down to fit in the tube. The hole saw also gave me a center hole to mount the nut to.

you just tack weld a nut(I prefer square for this) on one side of your insert, then insert it into the tube and weld is just inside the tube so the top of the welds are still inside the tube

Then you can mount the rod end!

then I made the mount by cutting 14 gauge steel 6.5" x.75", smoothing the edges and forming into a mount. Used two screws to hold it to the wall and set the tube into the mounts.
