Decor Hack – Curtains as a Shower Curtain

Have you ever wanted better shower curtain options than the juvenile or floral selections available at most big box stores?

What about making a dramatic statement by having your shower curtain hung high, but gently brushing the floor as well?

Well, here’s my decor hack…

Okay, so once again, it’s probably not an original idea.

(Pinterest sort of ruined original ideas!)

When we redid our bathroom we hung a curved shower curtain rod (you know, like the ones in really swanky hotels) up high to add a little drama – and make it feel like the shower/tub were bigger. Then we just hung grommet curtains I picked up at Homesense (Homegoods) for a steal. Well, cheap anyway.

The best part is they are not only up high but they gently touch the floor too – hiding our 1970s green bathtub!

My aha moment!

I found my style and was able to bring our small space together for our family of 8! My aha moment was when you talked about undertones! That was the moment when I could bring everything together.

Falling in love with our home again

My ah-ha moment was when I realized I was going about things all the wrong way. I loved the house but it didn't feel like home. BUT now because of your course...I am falling in love with our home all over again.

Love this idea!

Orbs are such a great decor item to add to a space. Staining the hoops really gives them a vintage feel. Thanks for the inspiration.

I'm so done with Haphazard Decor! (Yes, I think I just made that "style" up). Thank you for your style quiz!


So Accurate!

I thought the quiz was so accurate, I want my friends to do it. I feel I like such a mix of things and the quiz described them all so well!
