Has anyone ever seen or heard of anyone applying window treatments such as drapes or curtains to a 4-sided gable (picture) window?

but I must be missing something here. Most windows have four sides - OK, two sides and a top and a bottom....

and gables have little to do with windows, it isa roof portion.

Excellence is its own reward!

I think I might have the same problem. The gable end of our house has a large window in it that is the same shape as the gable it comes to a point at the top. The window is in a bedroom. Therefore I need to find a covering for the complete window. Any ideas?

I've heard of using metal pipe and elbows as the rods.
