Simple Tip to Avoid Puddles

No, we did not have a leaky ceiling.

But we did have curtain panels that have been bothering me forever!

As you can see, they puddled…but not in a good way.

More of a way that says,”My owner is too cheap to buy custom…and too lazy to hem them to make them look neat!”

So today I decided to take the easy way out, fold over the tops, re-clip them and no more puddles!

I even creased them a little to make them nice and neat.

Although, they will not stay that way long with 2 boys in the house!  That was one of the easiest tranformations I have ever done!

What took me so long?

Do you have any quick change and/or “lazy” transformations you would like to share?
