After having the drapery rod sitting next to the window since last Saturday, I FINALLY had time to put it up. Last night, I got out my husband’s power drill and pried the drapery rod & hardware out of the box – they were pretty secure in there! After watching a YouTube video to make sure I didn’t forget anything (level, check!), I started marking the wall for my screws and fastening the hardware to the wall. It was a pretty complicated process for someone who doesn’t whip out the drill to hang things every day, but I finally got it up. Check out the results!
