Replacing DD's closet door with a curtain
DD has a small, awkward closet in her fairly small bedroom. She wants to remove the closet door (we'd keep the door so we can replace it someday) and hang a curtain in its place. I think this is a pretty good idea. If you have ever done this, can you tell me how you handled it? For instance, what type of curtain rod did you use? At first I thought of using a tension rod, but I think we need something outside mounted so she can open the curtain more fully when she needs to.
At the moment I'm just poking around online looking for curtain ideas. I even thought of using a shower curtain if the length is right. I have no sewing skills, by the way, so please don't suggest that I make a curtain!
I'm not at home now to measure, but it's a normal/standard single door.
