I cut pieces of cardboard to fit the drawers, then covered them with quilted fabric. Folded the fabric over the edges and glued them down. They stayed in place and gave the drawers a more finished look.

I use a small keychain tape measure. They cost a couple of dollars at any hardware store.

Two suggestions:
1. Use top and bottom rods to stretch the fabric over the windows as on side lights and French doors.
2. Use swing out rods on the windows or frames. They are called Adjustable Crane Rod sets at Country Curtains. http://www.countrycurtains.com/product/300+rods+and+hardware/302+decorative+curtain+rods/0303r808+adjustable+crane+rod+set.do?sortby=ourPicks&filterby=

I found an oak quilt frame that just fit around my radiator with one of the crossbars about six inches above the top of the radiator. We hung hooked clothespins from the crossbars and then were able to hang mittens, scarves, etc to dry out.

Now that the kids have grown, I will have the radiator enclosed.

Another approach is to use brackets for curtain (not pole) rods that fit over the corners of the molding. You can get them from several places, here is the link to HomeImprovements.

You could optionally screw them in on their top edge if your curtains are heavy (it won't show). Also, your window molding must be less than 3/4" thick.
