DRAPING CURTAINS. [Newspaper Article] — The Queanbeyan Leader — 11 April 1905
DKAJTOG CURTAINS. The question of how to drape curtain! is an important one. One artist eaid : ? Every thing should hang straight at the aides.' Another favored festoons and ends, or, in technical Darlance. ' sxravs und tails ' and a third favored * draped lambcrquins.' How ever the artistic eye may desigu a particular drapery, thrae ia ono great important fact, too slightingly treated by many housekeepers. That is, perfection in hanging. A draper is just as exact in measuring and placing cur tains aa tho carpenter Is in hanging the door. A little out of plumb means any amount of trouble. An nnevon folding, means crooked, unsightly hanging to the draporv and sagging or ' skew to the very beet pait of the room's decoration. For are not windows ' open pictures I' Are thoy not the eyes of a room, uud therefore in need of careful treat - mentr The poorest eturl' requires quite as much, if not more, care than of better quality.
