Hanging curtains

For those of you who opted to keep all the windows in your skoolie, tell me...how did you hang window curtains?

Re: Hanging curtains

I have to do most everything online. We're 120 miles from anything.

Re: Hanging curtains

We're on the road next weekend, Lowe's is nearby. That might be a good chance to grab them. Thanks!

Re: Hanging curtains

I'm planning on magnets, soon as I find a bunch that kids can't swallow.

Re: Hanging curtains

I tried that. The weight of the curtain pulled the magnets down the smooth paint. I had good magnets too!

Re: Hanging curtains

We have been using magnets for 5 or 6 years waiting for curtains to arrive. The magnets are 3/4" square and 1/4" thick. They are super magnets and they are dangerous. If they snap together they will take a piece of meat with them. I usually use the 1/4" side if I'm just sticking them to the wall. If you lay them flat you can't get them off.I have to slide them to a curved surface to get them off. Believe me they do work.
I for got where I go them but they aren't hard to find. Just Google super magnets. A pretty good temporary fix.

Re: Hanging curtains

Those are what I used except these were 1/2" round. The heavy material just pulled them down. Mind you this is not lightweight curtain stuff, it is heavy insulated material, with a backing too.
