Here is a unique and simple way to get the effect of a tapestry without the expense. I bought my canvas and metal curtain tiebacks at Garden Ridge. You can find the dowels and hardware at any local hardware or craft store. To top it off, I placed a wrought iron hanging above it. I love the effect of how the canvas hangs from the dowel, so unique.
