As usual, my little curtain fix-up came with it's own problem of minorly-annoying proportions. The middle bracket. It had to go.
And that left me with some droopage. See it there? The rod kind of does not have the mojo to stay straight as you go from the thicker part to the tinnner bit with the finial.
What to do? Well, I went to Target and bought a cheap ($20!) new rod that was meant to 84-144" or some such. Basically, it just has longer sections of poles. It's a crap rod, really, I would not recommend it for real life. But, for this? It worked since I had existing actual metal finials that I could screw in and actual metal brackets to use. And, even on more expensive rods, the middle metal rod part is basically crap. So, I kind of just bought it for the longer middle rod...
If it sags over time I'll replace it with a thicker pole version of the same thing. I probably would have gotten the thicker option this time, but my Target only had it in silver and I could not really be bothered to go further once I got this up and not-sagging.
I would have taken some non-sagging pictures, but I had a little more to do before the whole thing was photo-ready. See tomorrow for that little can 'o worms.
