I need to hang some standard window blinds (blinds that you pull upward by pulling the strings down) inside a few of my windows, but my walls are concrete stucco, and there is about a 3/4" gap between the drywall and the concrete on all of my windows.
I know that one option to hang the blinds would be to use a hammer drill and a masonry drill bit and screws to screw into the concrete, but that seems awfully obtrusive into the structure of my house just for some blinds. I'm wondering if it would work if I just attach the blinds straight to the drywall, using a shorter screw and drywall anchors? Or might the drywall not be able to handle the force of pulling on the string to open up the blinds?
There are 4 screws that hold each bracket up (one bracket on either end of the blinds), and so there would be 8 screws total holding the blinds up. Also, the blinds are 34.5" long, so it's not too much weight...right?
