    Default Curtains

    Hi all :-)
    I was given a set of curtains for my daughters room but I haven't seen this style before. I'm not sure how I would hang them. I probably sound a little silly now :-/ I hope someone can help so I can get them hung this weekend. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1413000526.433355.jpgImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1413000501.790657.jpg

    What kind of curtain railings do you have? These require (wait for my technical descriptions) a little white plastic part that hooks through a metal circle. The White part slides through the railing, the metal loop goes through the curtain - I think that is right, I remember threading these for Mum when I was younger and she would take the curtains down to wash. Take one to spotlight or somewhere similar and they can advise - but if you don't have the right curtain rails you will need to buy new ones.

    These are the type that go on runners...
    Alternatively if you only have a rod you can feed curtain rings onto them

    Bugger I was hoping it was going to be a case of buying a rod and putting them on. Not sure how I'm going to make them look pretty now :-(

    No, the ugly stuff at the top is the inside - the other side should look okay but the rail does usually get covered by a pelmet.

    Oh yeah I see - picture 1 is the front. They must have been made for use with a pelmet. Would they be high enough up and bunched enough that you wouldn't see it?
