Ubuntu Desktop Showing Home Folder Contents

I was playing with a shell script to rename a bunch of image files to lowercase then resize them but I had a typo in one of my variables resulting in accidentally renaming all the folders in my home directory with lowercase names. After next log in I now see the home folder contents displayed on the Desktop. To fix this:

gedit ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs

and fix all the paths in there.
