Today the hubs and I went to Lowes and purchased the curtains for the bathroom.


Here is another boring before picture...

And the after...

I super-love the fabric but had to do a complete overhaul on these. Don't be afraid to buy things that, on the surface, don't look like they will fit. Right out of the bag, these were not going to work, but with a little...ok, a lot, of tweaking, they were window ready.

I had planned on hanging them a little lower, but unfortunately, we have some kind of wicked metal casing all around that bathroom window. About 42 holes in the wall later, we decided just to hang these higher up and forget it. Thank goodness for joint compound and some touch up paint!

And the bonus is....I have quite a bit of this fabric left. Goodie, goodie, gumdrops!!

And a double bonus...the hubs and I were looking at a local fireplace store for gas logs for our fireplace, and out of the corner of my eye, I spotted this little beauty.

I just had to snap her pic with my Blackberry!! Alas, we left the store without her.

Anyway, moving on to number three on the bathroom list....


  1. do I see pillows in your future?! I love love love those curtains.

  2. I love the pattern in those curtains, makes a huge difference!

  3. You did a fabulous job with the curtains. They really made a difference in the bathroom. I hope you have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary
