It's finally finished!!!!! It turns out that it was possible for one person to install this, it just wasn't me. Thank god for brother in laws!!! The way he did it was this...
- Determine where around your window or doors you want the curtain rod to hang
- Mount each shelf bracket to the wall so that they are level to each other
- Place your board with equal amounts of overhang on each side and use interior wood screws to mount the board to the shelf brackets
- Thread your curtain onto the rod and mount the rod into your shelf brackets
Find your studs, screw your board into the frame (that's what I did), figure it out! Good luck!!!
