I was cleaning up our new-to-us Old Scamp
today, assessing what needs attention. Since new curtains was #1 on my list- of course the first thing that came down were the old ones.
Well!!!!!! of course it just has some "walmart" very cheap cafe rods and brackets. You know, the ones with the "brass" colored painted on finish? And of course, they were all rusty. The brackets, VERY rusty. SO ugly. They are riveted in. To replace them, (I asked my husband about it) it would mean drilling out the old rivets, and re-riveting.
Well, IF I am going to do something so drastic (it seem drastic to me, anyway- holes!!) I would want to replace the brackets with brass or stainless steel ones.
I have just spent an hour googling for possible sources or even if anyone makes such small brass or stainless curtain brackets to no avail.
Anyone have any ideas? Otherwise, I suppose I'll just de-rust these for now and paint
