I Finally Got Me a Curtain Rod!

By Nicoleao @momfever

curtain rodAfter living in a fish bowl for more than two years, I’m still living in a fish bowl. Thanks to the fact we still haven’t got any curtains, our whole life is permanently on display. But at least I’ve got one curtain rod now!

Rooms with a view

When we moved to the country two years ago, I was so beguiled by the beautiful views I did not want to lose any of it. So I never got curtains. Sure I thóúght about curtains. I thought about what kind of curtains would be best, and where to get them. But somehow I never got any further than thinking about it.

Finally! A curtain rod!

But last week I finally took action. I bought myself a curtain rod. Only one, mind you. I wanted to see how it looked before investing heavily into several more. Besides I wasn’t at all sure we would be able to get it on our wall. Unfortunately none of us is very handy.

But my husband managed to get the curtain rod up.

And I really like it. I like that it looks kind of nostalgic and romantic. And I especially like that it only cost me 6 bucks.

Now I have to buy curtains!

Now it’s onto the next phase of my masterplan ‘How To Get Me Some Curtains’. I have to get curtains!

Because it’s Springtime I’m leaning towards white. But I also like curtains with flowers and birds and stuff.

Stay tuned!

I'm ruefully chuckling at this, because living in a ground floor apt would make coverage de riguer, or so you would think! I was actually shocked (altho it should have been a portent ...) that this landlord provided no hardware for anything and no blinds! As I have no tools and am totally not handy, I eventually had to buy a spring tension rod - like they use in showers, uh-huh - and set that inside the window frame itself ... but ... the problem is that these are wooden-framed windows, that swell and contract (no wonder why they were gotten rid of everywhere else!) So when the curtain rod just kept crashing down over summer, I gave up and keep packing paper (that is non-see-thru and actually the exact size!) taped-up over it!!! Mebbe I should draw a house on it or something ....
