How did your workroom gather the drapery header to ensure it remained stationary? Thank you.

I would search 'wooden curtain rod' on the internet.

I came up with this site, but am certain there are several others.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Timothy De Clue Design L.L.C added this to A Touch of Chinoiserie
Here is a great collection of Blue and White porcelain...
Kit Pollard added this to Formal Dining in the Summertime
Even though this space is enclosed and formal, the bright blue is summery enough to make the room feel right for summer dining.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Instant Living Spaces
Not so sure on the permanence of a shelf, partition or built-in wall? Curtains will do the trick. Pull them back when you want open space, pull them closed for privacy. You've achieved the best of both worlds. Next: Browse more photos of room dividers
Shoshana Gosselin added this to Yes, Please: Parisian Hotel Flair
Try adding more decadence to a dining room by hanging silk drapes at the entrance. Have them just touch the ground, not puddling, so no one trips on them.
Interior designer Tracy Murdock says: "I love to display plates and china collections prominently when they are available to me on a project. It is a good way to incorporate personal items into a home." She recommends starting out the arrangement with a symmetrical base and then randomly dropping in odd pieces that don't have a mate. She also recommends making these arrangements a focal point,and utilizing art lights to enhance the display.
Rod pocket. The rod pocket is the simplest and most cost-effective heading treatment. The drapery fabric is folded over and attached to itself, creating a pocket for the drapery rod to slip through. Tip: Sew a seam across the very top edge of the pocket. You will get a distinctive gathering of fabric at the top of the header.

I knew I would find this picture. This is one of my VERY favorites because it shows how lovely drapes can be to transition between rooms. Without these, this opening would be way too overwhelming and you have 2 of them so the drapes are a great fit here.
