The ABC’s of window treatments
Grommets are a popular heading for drapery panels, valances and shower curtains. They can be made of brass, nickel and plastic and come in many finishes to match your rod.
Barry Dixon used organic linen to make grommets panels for this living room.

Jonathan Adler used grommet panels as a bed treatment and mounted the hardware to the ceiling.
The panels in my study are made with black grommets to match the black wrought iron rod and finials.
If you want to use grommets outside make sure they are made of brass so they don’t rust.

If you are going to try these I have 2 suggestions……
1. Always use an even number. I plan on 8 per width of fabric.
2. Have a big strong man with a big sledge hammer because it takes 150 lbs of force to set the large ones.
Or you could just send me your fabric and I’ll make them for you !
