This is a question Bodge Jobs

If you can't fix it with a hammer and a roll of duck tape, it's not worth fixing at all, my old mate said minutes before that nasty business with the hammer and a roll of duck tape. Tell us of McGyver-like repairs and whether they were a brilliant success or a health and safety nightmare.

Curtains...
...when we moved to our latest abode, we found that the bedroom to be occupied by our infant son had a curtain rail but no rail ends, thus making closing the curtains an exciting and precarious adventure. Off we went to B&Q to purchase some curtain rail ends....

...Have you seen how much curtain rail ends cost these days? Shit the bed, they're only supposed to stop the curtains falling off!

so instead we bought two hose clamps at about 50p each; they work a dream, and it's not like the baby really gave a shit about the curtains anyway.

Good call.
Plus the lower half of a sump from a Vauxhall Cavalier makes an ideal changing mat.
