We are using the small white round curtain rods with the brass holders which I have modified and pop rivited to the bottom of the square part of the old venetian blind. We are going to put in a bottom rod and we think we will try the curtain hooks in the carpet to hold them in place. The top rail will get a pine vailance when I start building the new cabinet doors. Velcro is working for now.
The midnight sun up here is rough, sunset around 11pm and sunrise is around 5 am.
The wife can sleep though it but I am up at the first light
