When we moved into this house, we decided that we did not want to cover up the big windows and their beautiful view and trim. But we did want some privacy of course, so we applied some vinyl in an obscuring pattern over the bottom part of the window. This worked a treat for that. The only problem with it was that one window was too wide for the vinyl, so we had to put the vinyl sideways across the window. Unfortunately this left a narrow strip at the bottom that was clear, as shown in the window below.
The other problem is that the vinyl is shrinking slightly and coming unglued at the edges and is looking unsightly.
So we decided that we are going to remove the vinyl and put up some curtains. So we went out to get a curtain rod that would fit inside the window casing. We first went to Fabricland, and found a double rod that will suit very well. You can see it in the above photo - that's not where the rod will be located - we were just testing it out to see how it fit and what it looked like. We think it looks pretty good!
This is a closeup of the bracket. It matches the light fixures and taps very nicely.
