The curtains here pretty much came out just the way I wanted. I took a shish kabob skewer, painted the ends red after trimming, cut and hemmed the curtains, and rolled them onto the rod. I found the absolute best stuff the other day at Walmart, It's Aleene's Peel & Stick tape. You can do so much with this stuff, and I just LOVE it! Gonna go buy about 10 more rolls in case they stop making it!
