Board Mounted Swags
Each swag will cover up to 60" of width and consists
of 2 deer skins. The only difference between the rod mount
and board mounted swag is that with the board mount there
is no top drop. The bottom drop can be from 18" to 30".
The jabots, which are the side panels, will average up to
30" in length with one skin and 60" with two and
so forth. All finished measurements will vary slightly due
to the difference in each individual skin.
The differences between the rod mount and board mount
A. There is a return on a board mounted swag
where there is none on a rod mount.
This is important if you have a doorway on the same wall as
your rod mounted swag, as you can see behind it. We use beautiful
brackets so this may not be a problem, but it is something
to consider. The board mount has 4” returns unless other
B. You don’t have the cost of the rod,
mounts and finials with the board mount.
To figure how many swags you will need, take your window width
and divide it by 60 and round up and multiply by the price
of the skin, $160. If you have an 80” window you will
divide 80” by 60” and get 1.3, so you will need
two swags which consist of 4 skins. Each skin is $160, so
4 x 160 = $640.
Then you will need to figure your jabots. If your window length
is 80” and you don’t want the jabots to go to
the bottom, 1/3 or 2/3 of the window length is a customary
measure. So, for an 80” long window you might want 53”
jabots which is 2/3rds of the window length. This is only
a suggestion; there may be other factors that determine how
long your jabot lengths are, such as a piece of furniture
in front of the window or something like that. If you did
use the 53” length you would need to have two skins
for each one. So multiply 4 x $160 = $640 and now add your
swags to your jabots and you will get, $640 + $640 = $1280.
This is the total price if you don’t add fringe, nail
heads, tassels, etc. These things are extra. (Please check
the pricing page for these)
* You can use Farm Deer to achieve
a wider swag. For Farm Deer, use the same formula below but
divide your width by 90”. For your length, you divide
by 50”. The price for each Farm Deer skin is $210.
Window Width _______-60" = ________(round up)
x $160 = ________skins
Window length _______-3 = _______ x 2 = FL. ________-30"
up) x $160 = ________skins per jabot. (you might
have a long jabot on one side and a short on the other.)
* Now add the swags and jabots and get your total. On top
of this add any additional decoration.
