Middle support for a curtain rod


I am hanging a set of valances and half length curtains in my kitchen. I have a double set of windows, with nothing to attach a support to in the middle of the windows.

They are about 80 inches wide and I am stumped as how I can add support to the bar I'll be putting about halfway down the windows.

I made a little graphic for what I am talking about in case this is confusing haha. Couldn't find the camera! The red circle is the area I am speaking about.

Any suggestions?

How about a picture of the real windows so we can see if this was really two windows just set close together. Are these wood or vinyl windows?

My apologies. There is nothing to attach a support to. They are vinyl windows connected with vinyl pieces. There is no space in between them.

Hard to picture, there would have to be at least a piece for the window tracks that could be screwed to.

I just used some line to tie it to the curtain rod above. It's not level I need to bring it down some but it is easier and less invasive than screwing into the window.
