A great idea for DIY bay window curtain rods is to make them with the help of dowels. To make these functional bay window curtain rods, you will need a long dowel, decorative drawer knobs, a hand-held drill, a handsaw, T nut bolts and spray paint. First measure the width of all the three window casements of the bay window. Now cut the dowel into three pieces, according to the dimension of the window. If your bay window is not the three window casement style, but consists of one wide window, then you need not cut the dowel at all. Drill holes at the ends of the dowel by attaching a drill bit to a hand-held drill. While drilling holes into the dowel, make sure that it is properly centered. Attach T nut bolts on each holes of the dowels and make sure it is flush with the dowel ends. Screw in the decorative drawer knobs on each end of the dowels. If you want to give the curtain rod a more finished look, then spray paint it with a matt or metallic textured paint. Install curtain rods on the brackets of the bay windows.
You can install the blinds on your own. These blinds are available with the plastic sleeves. You will need a good electric screwdriver to screw those sleeves on top of the window with the opening in facing you. Now, place the top of the mini blind on those plastic sleeves. It is essential to use the sleeves to ensure proper movement of the blinds.
Curtains arent something that require consistent cleaning, apart from the times where there may be a little spill or stain. It will important to treat them accordingly, but until then, its important to give them a wash every 3-4 months. This will keep your curtains colours and longevity, which is only beneficial when it comes to the price of curtains. Lighter curtains can be washed with any home based washing machines, however if you have larger, thick and heavier curtains, it will need to be dry cleaned.
There's nothing like the remarkable feeling you experience from pulling a scented curtain tassel out of its beautiful packaging. Lifting the flap releases the scent . . . then you grasp the braided hanger cord and pull the tassel gently out . . . and remember the excitement of opening a really wonderful present! Lots of folks say it's the little things in life.
