Curtain rod brackets DIY

For quite some time I have pondered how to mount the curtain rods in my Burro.
The photos below show some of my issues with irregularly shaped inner walls surrounding my new windows.

I find that I need to be able to accomidate irregular angles where the brackets mount but still aim horizontally for the rod. See photos below. I have finally come up with my plan!

I riveted broom brackets to little "L" brackets and they swivel to make the angles. I am using copper plumbing pipe as my curtain rods.

This holds them securely but allows easy removal too. Not for everyone, but i am known to "Skimp" on costs.

Good idea. How will you attach to the walls?

My Burro has an inner fiberglass shell and the outter one. I can rivet it to the inner wall without penetrating the outter shell. Good pop rivets work very well.

I agree. Good plan. The double wall of the burro allows for a lot of options not recommended for my boler.

Renee,
Of course the fewer holes in the shell the better.
Depending on the window frame structure and what choices of brackets you pick, possibly you could make your attachment to the window frame.
I have a 70s Boler too, and its Jalousie aluminum window frames give a good mounting option inside without penetration of shell.

Is this an issue you are looking to solve?

My jalousie windows are fine, the original riveted brackets were in place for curtains.
The big front and back windows were more of a challenge. I installed (with SS through rivets) brackets for a flexible curtain hanger strip. The curtains attach with plastic hooks. They slide either direction very smoothly. This makes the curtains hang in a curve, close to the windows. Otherwise they stand away in a straight line from the windows leaving a big gap. Similar to what airstream uses.
