There is no doubt that Ikea is a great place to buy curtains. They're a great length, they're durable and they're super inexpensive. Win, win, win. I don't really love tab tops though and that is a bit of a problem with Ikea curtains.
Did you know it's super easy to change a tab top curtain to a pocket curtain?
All you need is a basic stitch ripper.
Getting as close to the seam as possible and using a sharp pair of scissors, cut the tabs off.
And that is all there is to that. A hidden pocket lies inside every tab top curtain.
