My wife, bless her, wants new curtain rails fixed above our upstairs
windows. Presently each window has a wooden batten NAILED above
it. (The builders used 3 inch long flat brads.) I noticed when I took off
the first batten that most of the brads were bent almost double.
Now I am trying to drill/plug the two holes for each curtain bracket.
BUT keep finding I'm unable to drill holes of sufficient depth to take
the plugs. Looks like I'm coming up against a steel lintel?
The house was built in the early 70's.
Anyone got any suggestions as to how to successfully drill/plug
without the wall looking like a gorgonzola cheese - i.e. FULL of holes!
Many thanks in advance!
