“Bow-rowr- -rowr- -rowr- -rowr- -rowr- -rowr-!”
"Plink! Plink! Plink!”
Groggily I shuffle to the bathroom. The supposed stay up spring loaded shower curtain rod fell down. I raise my hands to the heavens and wonder how I pissed off the home improvement gods this time? Why must these things always happen in the middle of the night? Why can’t I get a good night’s sleep?
Apparently I was wrong about the long term stay uppidness. Time to break out the power tools.
How I Made a Sturdy Stay Up Shower Curtain Rod
I went to the home improvement store and bought two wooden closet rod brackets. I painted them the wall color with leftover paint. I screwed the brackets into the wall and placed the tension shower curtain rod into the closet rod brackets. Instant sturdy stay up shower curtain rod!
Since I screwed the closet rod brackets into drywall I didn’t need any special equipment other than a regular drill bit on Mommy’s Little Helper my electric drill. If need to install your brackets on tile, you can purchase a tile drill bit for a few dollars at any home improvement store.
After this little quick fix, I got an unintentional add-on. The wooden closet rod brackets make my curtain rod much more stable when I use it to line dry laundry on hangers during the winter. Bonus.
