I popped open the pattern last night. I’ve found that it’s good to read something like that many, MANY times before I even start to cut.
There’s some hardware and supplies that I don’t necessarily understand. Fabric, great. Tube tape, fine. I figured that out pretty easily. Dowels, slats…might have to break out the reciprocating saw.
The way these mount are with two nails hanging from some brackets. The pattern calls for “angle brackets,” but I’m 99% sure that the nails are not going to sit on what Home Depot defines as Angle Brackets. Now, I could screw the mounting board to the window with angle brackets and call it a day…but the picture is showing something different.
I’m not there yet. There’s a lot of sewing, ironing and doweling before I get there. So I can think about it.
But hopefully I will be there on one of these by the end of the weekend. Anyone have any advice?
Oh, and I have to beg/borrow/buy a real stapler. Maybe Dad left one here…I hope so…
