I had originally hung up window curtains by putting plastic anchors into the plaster and screwing into those. After a year, that fell out.
Searching online, it seems if I find the studs / wood framing and screw into that, it should be more secure. I used a magnet I had to try to locate the studs; the magnet sticks to the wall anywhere within about an inch of the window frame. I thought the screws in the wood were only supposed to be spaced apart 8" vertically so I would only expect the magnet to stick every 8", or am I misinterpreting that?
And as a renter can I screw into the wood? If not, I guess I need a toggle of some sort?
