The curtains in the guest bedroom have been hanging since September last year but I have never gotten around to hanging the tie-backs. I ordered the curtains and tie-backs from Laura Ashley whilst I was in London. When I got them they just had these little brass rings sewn to the back that would not go over the tie-back hooks I'd bought so I needed to find a way around the problem.
I simply cut a piece of wire, threaded the crystal beads on and wrapped the ends of the wire around the brass ring. So now the crystal loop hangs on the curtain tie-back hook and holds the curtains in place.
I have a slight fear of electrical tools. I think I am frightened that I might drill into a water pipe or electricity wire. I normally ask my husband to do the drilling bit, but he was busy studying so I had to face my fear and use the drill to hang the tie-back hooks.
I also need to shorten and rehang the curtain poles. That involved finding studs, the drill and a saw!
I have had this hook sitting in my bedside drawer since December last year. Why do I procrastinate with the little jobs?
Now I have to face an even bigger challenge. Using this!
Oh well - at least I have these.
And I did a 'girl' thing and read the operating instructions.
