Grommet Tab Curtain Fix
I finally gave in and purchased grommet top curtains for my living room a while back but was constantly adjusting them as they ended up squished or unevenly spaced on the rod. I am not a perfectionist but when I spend money on something I want it to look nice and curtains that wouldn't stay put drove me nuts!
How can I keep them evenly spaced; from being pushed flat? My solution was to purchase a pool noodle for $1 at the Dollar Store! I have used pool noodles for many things around the home and I was sure this could be my solution.
Try to get a noodle that is similar in color to your curtains or your rods. If that is not an option (as in my case) you can always paint the pieces that may show. I removed the sticker.
Next, I cut the noodle down the center, lengthwise to easily slip onto the rod when I am done.
Next, I cut my pieces into 2 inch sections. For each rod I need 8 pieces. I ended up using 2 noodles for my living room. I have 5 windows in the living room.
These little cuffs were so easy to apply. I simply slipped the sections behind each fold on the rod.
So much better! Don't you think? Evenly spaced and nothing flat or squished!
Who knew that for the price of a dollar I could be so happy?! After I finished this easy little project I realized I could have probably done the same thing with empty paper towel rolls.
