Do you like that super long title? let’s say it together How to hang curtain rods on windows with decorative molding! Well, that’s what I goggled when I was searching for ideas on how to hang curtain on windows with decorative molding.
You know what I found…. ZIP… Nothing…. NADA…
Not one idea that would help me in my decision making process.
One picture kept coming up and it’s beautiful! I just absolutely love Thistlewood Farm. I mean who wouldn’t?
Kari Anne’s dining room looks like it is out of the pages of a magazine.
Although her molding on her windows is similar to mine. It’s not exactly the same. My molding is way far away from the ceiling and the molding sticks out from the wall at least 4 inches. There’s almost like a shelf type quality to it. Take a look… These are all of the moldings in my living room. I think in this room I will hang the curtain rods just like Kari Anne did, very close to the ceiling. Each curtain can drape between the windows.
But the kitchen is a little different.
See the ceiling is way far up there and then it angels. I would have to have like 20 ft drapes and then they would still awkwardly stick our over the molding. What to do?
I decided to purchase Martha Stewart’s curtain rod pieces in white. I figured this would really work with the molding. Any dark rod would really stand out. That’s not what I wanted. Here’s a list of what I purchased to get this look.
I honestly think that this is the best option for these windows. After I hung the curtains at the perfect height, they were too short. But not to worry. I have a fix for that. Look below for the preview and tomorrow I will show you how to make Burlap Tab Drapes.
