    Question Ok, my frugal friends, I need some ideas..........

    I am putting up new curtains in the living room and need 2 tension rods to hang the balloon curtains. I went to town and bought two........$14.00 later~ and they don't fit, I must have measured wrong and they are too big. I will take them back and know they don't have a smaller size. I have been racking my brain trying to find something that I can use instead, something I may have around the house. Thought I could save myself some $$. They go on the inside of the window and it is wood.

    Any ideas??

    Heather you can cut those tension rods down if you need to....or I might better say "have them cut down". I've never done it but my dmom has. I can't think of a cheaper solution. I have a couple I could send you. They are antique though. What size do you need?
