It's Curtains for Jen

By Roger Hazard

Roger,

Is there a window treatment that doesn't require a screw driver for installation? I avoid power tools.

Jen A.

Dear "Powerless" Jen,

If you are a fan of classic movies you will remember the famous curtain scene in "IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT" staring Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert, in which they use a curtain for privacy. There were no power tools used to hang it. You might not want to hang one as big as the one in the movie. But you could use two eye hooks, some strong sisal twine or wire, and small ring clips to install window treatments without power tools. Just make sure you use a lightweight fabric. Good luck and check out the movie...it was the first film to win 5 Academy Awards.
