If you don’t regularly follow my blog, we just moved to a house and we now have 3 full bathrooms and one half bath. I’ve been trying to fill this house with all my belongings from the 2 bedroom/2 bathroom condo I lived in before and it’s expensive. I’m trying to save some money, but still make everything look beautiful because I love my new house and I want to show it off!
Needless to say, I saw this on Pinterest and needed to do something to replicate it. I was going to try it before in our condo, but there ended up being some problems with pulling it off. For one, I want to actually use my shower and I don’t want water everywhere or soaking wet curtains. I believe they used actual curtains for this bathroom.
So the other day I was at the dollar store (one of them?) and found these white shower curtains and white shower curtain rings. I’m puzzling over which project I wanted to do with shower curtain rings when I thought of this bathroom upgrade and decided to try to do something similar to the above photo, but super cheap. I needed to put up a shower curtain anyways and worst case scenario, I’d have an extra shower curtain and an extra set of curtain rings… and it turns out I have a lot of projects pinned that use there. Also, I like to use cheap shower curtains under art projects. Just fold them up after playing with Play Doh or painting so you don’t get anything on your floor.
I bought 2 white shower curtains and 2 sets of white shower curtain rings, totaling $4. My husband had bought some curtain drawbacks (or whatever they are) for $10 for a pair and we never used them. My project total ended up being $14.
|Step 1: Hang two different matching shower curtains up, using two sets of shower curtain rings.
Take the two middle rings and hook them through each other as well.
|Step 2: Put up your tie backs/curtain drawbacks. Daddy B did this for me
after telling me repeatedly that this wouldn’t work.
|Step 3: Arrange your curtains just like so. They’re easy to unhook if you need to shower, but they really help spotlight how white and clean my bathtub looks right now. Haha. Let’s see how long that lasts!|
I may decide to add fabric flowers to the curtain drawbacks to hide the metal on the wall a bit better, but for right now I really like how it looks. Especially given that it was a $14 project! As you can see I pulled in my fabric “paintings” from a previous blog post, No-Sew Wall Art.
