As my first purchase from overstock, I ordered 3 sets of these curtain rods. Two of the 66"-115" and one 165"-215 expandable rods. They were delivered quickly, and arrived in good shape. There were a few spots where the black paint had scratched off, but not enough to make me return them. My biggest gripe about these rods, is that the plastic dowel-like pieces that you slide into each end of the rod (that allows the finials to be attached) only fit one side of the rod. Because the rods are expandable, the outer sleeve is slightly larger. And with only one size of dowel, makes this a frustrating buy. I'm not the type to return things, and my husband is handy, so he "rigged" them with cardboard and masking tape... All three rods had this problem. I hope my "fix" lasts. If you really want these rods, I suggest you head to the hardware store and buy wooden dowels to slide into the ends.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Same as pictured. I ordered the black rods.
