Question DetailsAsked on 12/17/2013

I am looking for someone who can hang drapes that I had to take down when I had my den renovated. Any suggestions?

We had our main den renovated and had to have the drapes and rod taken down as we changed the walls to dry walls. Now, we need someone to put up the bar and drapes after we get them cleaned. We bought them at J C Penneys.

This is actually pretty easy to do yourself - just check the web for a simple how-to video with the type of brackets you have, measure where you want the brackets horizontally, measure needed height off floor for correct and level drape hang height, screw two brackets to wall, then hang or screw rod on brackets (as applicable) and tighten holding screw, then hang drapes on hooks.

As for how wide to put the brackets, if the prior mounting was good, you will probably see marks on the rod where teh brackets were before, so that gives you width. Height you have to lay the rod and mounted drapes out on the floor and draw them tight to measure actual hang length from top of bracket, then add however far off the floor you want them to clear the floor.

If not up to that, a Handyman, or maybe the contractor that did your remodel (this should have been included in the original scope of work of his contract).
