Here are the curtains hung up & closed. When my husband Bill & I were in Fabricland to get the brackets, the whole rod sets were on clearance. The set contained rod, finials, rings, & brackets, for just $10 more than the brackets, so all the painting will be for another job in the future. Bill thought with the length of curtain & the pulling of them across the rod, it would only be a matter of time before the paint wore through. So for $20 this set was installed & it moves so freely across the rod.
I think it really warms a room to have drapery & I've been sleeping in a bit more with them closed or maybe I'm doing the mammal thing & doing a bit of hibernating. Either way it's cozier in the bedroom now.
