In all seriousness, I actually hate hemming curtains. It's hard!
But after trying and debating all the existing "options" for covering up the french doors, it seems like hemming curtains is the only way to go for me.
First I tried those magnetic roller blinds. They were total junk. And ugly.
Then I debated the usual french door standard - curtain rods at top and bottom with curtains gathered in the middle. Eh. Totally not me.
Mini blinds? Nooooooooo.
Patterned window vinyl? Maybe, but you can't look out and watch the rain/snow/kids/etc.
So I just used store bought curtains. Made them shorter. Changed the rod pockets so there was a little ruffle at the top.
And voila! french door coverings that are much more speed and style.
On a side note, I finished painting the french doors blue and it's love. The blue is awesome. Nice spur of the moment decision I made there. :-)
