How to fix net curtain cord to ceiling above bay window?
posted by TheophileEscargot to home & garden (3 answers total)
We have moved into a rented home that has Venetian blinds in a bay window in the front room. We would like to add net curtains as well for more privacy. The landlord has OK'd minor changes but we don't want to leave ugly holes.
The problem is that the Venetian blinds leave no space to screw the curtain-cord hooks horizontally into the window-frame. We have two possible solutions.
. Screw larger hooks vertically into the ceiling, which is either plaster or fibreboard. Though the curtain is light, we're concerned the hooks will fall out over time.
. Attach smaller hooks horizontally to the boxes at the top of the blinds. We're considering supergluing them in place.
(Note: because it's a bay window we can't just use a straight curtain rod, which would be the obvious choice)
Any suggestions as to whether Plan A or Plan B is better? Or any Plan C's which are better still?
