How do I hang curtain rods on cement block walls?
My walls are made of cement block that I hand-troweled over with joint compound and painted after it dried. It's a nice Southwestern look, but how do I hang rods for drapes or curtains? You can't nail into the cement block, and drilling, I'm afraid, will crack the painted joint compound. Even if I do drill, how and what hardware do I attach to hold the hardware properly in cement block?
