Hmmmm, hadn't thought of that. I am planning (well, may reconsider now) buying a rivet gun this weekend, to remount all the z-clips with rivets. I'm having a problem with one z-clip. The curb side rear bed window, rear z-clip, is being bent out at 90 every time I open the rear shell. Because I've had to remove it a few times to hammer the z-clip flat, the mounting screws no longer hold. Rather than go to a larger diameter screw, I figured rivets would be the way to go. But first, I have to figure out what it is catching on. I can't figure it out, and you would think the z-clip would damage whatever it was catching on - scratch, or rip, or gouge, something.

Valances are done! (Well, have to Varathane, but that's easy work now).

My big goals were:
Make something stronger to hang curtains. Those cheapie Walmart style hooks that screw into the wall were breaking off very easily. If I break them that easily, the rest of my family would take care of them in minutes!

Use real solid wood only. The frames are made from 1/2x3/4" stock

Low profile. These are about 2 1/4 high and deep.

Thanks Holly!

The curtains were made by the previous owner. I quite like them, but I do need some room darkening fabric too.
