{Mallie} Welcome to another episode of do-it-yourself presented by Galaxy-Design.   I’m Mallie Messri, a realtor that specializes in residential home sales in the West Los Angeles area and today I’m here with Steve our top designer.
{Steve} Thank you Mallie.  We are going to go ahead and demonstrate today how to put up one of our two-piece DIY French Scroll combos. 
{Mallie}  These DIY window treatments are very stylish, innovative and tasteful.  And they are designed to dress your windows, not to cover them.  They are very easy to install and today we are going to show you just how to do that.
{Steve}  These do-it-yourself combo packages include one of our luxurious velvet draperies that are layered with a fine lining on the back.  You will also receive one of our French Scrolls that has our innovative design patent on the back of the drapery hardware. 
You will also get one of our elegant hold backs that we call our large medallion drapery hold back.  You will get the mounting bracket for the scrolls as well as the holdbacks along with the extension screw which allows you to have more than one layer of window treatments installed beneath these.  You will get color coordinated screws,  a genuine Swarovski label, as well as wonderful beautiful sketches showing all of the different design ideas you can create with this package in the future.
The DIY drapery hardware we are showing you today is embellished with Swarovski crystal elements however you may also chose to select them in broad array of custom crafted colors that you can view on our website.
These luxurious drapery panels are available in 96 inch and 120 inch finish lengths.  If you have a window that is 84 inches high, a 96 inch drapery panel would be suitable for that type of window.  If you choose to go ahead and order your own finish length, you can go ahead and visit our website to view our frequently asked questions section with will explain all the details on how to go about ordering those panels.
{Mallie}  In order to install the drapes, you will need three simple items:
1.       A drill, preferable with a hex gun drill head tip
2.       A Philips screwdriver
3.       A tape measure
{Steve} I have asked our co-designer Mallie to go ahead and show you how easy it is to put these up.  So we are going to start with our very first bracket which is called the bottom bracket of the scroll which is mounted from 4 to 6 inches away from the top corner of the window. 
Now that we have mounted the bottom bracket of the scroll, we are now going to go ahead and mount the top bracket of the scroll which is located 10 inches above the window in an angled position. 
The brackets are usually mounted 48 inches above the floor. 
{Mallie}  Our patented wire design allows easy installation of our exquisite DIY drapery panels.  To begin, simply remove the nuts on the back of the scroll and pull out the wire.  Our exquisite ready to install drapes come with a pocket already sewn in.  So all you have to do is simply slide the wire through and gather the drapery fabric to the top of the wire. 
So now that I’ve got the drape on to my patented drapery hardware wire, I’m going to place it on the back of the scroll  and take the nuts that I removed from before and screw them back on and tighten them into place.
The next step is to take your bracket and your Philips screwdriver and loosen the screw so that the extension screw comes out.  Then place it onto the back of the drapery scroll and tighten it then do the same with the other one.
OK, so now I have put everything onto the back of the scroll and mounted all of the screws.  This is what it looks like when it is done and the drapery fabric is attached and it looks great.  You might want to go ahead and adjust it a little bit so it looks nice and even and this is ready to be put up.
So now I’m ready to go ahead and mount the drapery hardware scroll onto the brackets.  I left the brackets a little loose and I will go ahead and tighten them later.  You now just go ahead and take them and slip them into the brackets and push it back.  And it’s is simple as that.
So now my drapes are up and I’m going to go ahead and create a drop.  I will show you how to do that.   You simply grab each pleat with your hand and move your hand upward.  Then you take the fabric and place it behind the drapery holdback.  Now you are going to want to organize it a little bit so it looks in order.  And that will create an amazing drop for the curtains.
{Steve}  So Mallie, thank you again for being in one of our videos.  It’s always great to have you here.  It’s always a contribution to us and our viewers.  And to all of our viewers, we hope you have enjoyed this video and we were able to make a contribution to you today out there in the world.
