Some of the curtains I have are rather plain and boring. I've often though they could benefit from a decorative strip but it seemed like a lot of work. It's really not as hard as I thought. Megan added a chevron print border to her curtains, and getting the chevron to line up right on both sides took a bit more care, but the process itself is pretty easy.

Have you customized curtains in your home?
