I bought this curtain rod for use in my tree themed little boy's nursery. I thought the leaf finial would be more substantial, it doesn't make much of an impact. The biggest problem I had however was with the long screws that came with the rod. The first one we used got stripped instantly with our cordless drill screwdriver. We ended up having to buy a different set of screws that were more well made. Not a huge deal, we're keeping the rod now that it's up but for the money I don't think it was quite worth it.
