Mutipurpose Shower Curtain

Have you been shopping for curtains lately?  Do you call them curtains or drapes?  Is there a difference?  I don't know, but I do know curtains are expensive.  They are expensive and you have to buy two of them.  Not this gal.  The last two times I needed curtains, I just made them myself from fabric.  You get a custom set for a cheaper price, depending on the type of fabric you get.  I like getting what I want and not just settling for what's available.  I had made some valances for our office to add some color in there.  The problem is there is a very nice piece of molding that's at the top of the blinds and I didn't want to cover that up.  I tried using velcro under the molding to attach the valances.  It worked for a while, but eventually, ashes ashes they all fell down.  Sorry, playing with toddlers today :)  I decided to just chuck the idea and put real curtains up.  We already had a long curtain rod from our previous house so that was going to cost me zilch.  This time, though, I didn't want to spend a lot of time making curtains from fabric.  I decided to go shower curtain shopping at Target.  That's when I saw this beauty...

The picture doesn't do the color justice.  It's a teal.  It's the same teal that's in our master bedroom.  You know how my heart is drawn to this color family!  I snatched it right up.  The moment the boys were in bed that night, I got started right away.  (that's a miracle in this house to get to a project the same day as purchase!)

I took it out of the box and laid it out on the floor.  I folded it in half and cut.

I ironed a seam, twice.  Folded in the edge, ironed.  Folded it again and ironed.  I definitely didn't want the edges to fray and a double hem avoids that.

I went slowly to keep the line as straight as possible.  It is truly IMPOSSIBLE for me to sew a straight line, no matter how hard I try.  I come close, though, as that's good enough for me.

Here's the dull wall.  BLAH!

Here's a bigger view

Here are the curtains up.  The lighting was terrible so I took some at night too.

See how it adds such a pop of wow??? I love the color!  I love that they give the space character!  I love that it took me maybe 20 minutes to complete!  I love that it only cost me $19.99 for the whole thing!  I just love them!!  What a simple project to totally change the feel of the space.

  5. Planning decorations for your home is very exciting and is a great fun. But, when you start implementing the designs into reality, you realize that it is not as easy as it seemed to be and you end up with a confused mind. This happens especially because of the availability of varieties in each category and to add to it, each one is better than the other be it in style, design, cut, color or anything.
