    3M Company "Command" strips - I'm in love with them. They have many hook designs that would hold a curtain rod and when you want them to come off, they do so cleanly. In fact I'm now using them to hold real curtain rods at my windows - no more "did I get the nail in a stud?" issues

    If you can drill into the particle board, check out the swing arm curtain rods. I have a boiler room down in my basement with a very small doorway and this is what I did using some curtains I made years ago for a makeshift pantry. These rods come in various lengths in sets of 2.

    For one section of my room I used double stick tape made by Gorilla Glue, put a hem in the fabric and stuck it on the tape. It's not going anywhere.

    I agree with using a tension rod. I made one for my daughter's bathroom and it looks cute.

    I agree with the above statement. Those tension rods work wonders

    I like to look at my fabric to see what I have and to get ideas on what to do next
