13 ‘Bout Dang Time: DIY Shower Curtain

>> Monday, April 23, 2012

I’m super pumped to celebrate the 3 year blogiversary of this little blog of mine! Time flies and with nearly 1000 post written (holy smokes I need to get out more) I love being able to look back on all of my adventures—and misadventures—in living the home life. I have a special birthday blog post in the works for later this week, but in the meantime, I’ll just keep chugging along as usual. After 3 years of DIY, I think we’re all on the same page that when it comes to the home life, things don’t just fix themselves.

Remember the master bath remodel I wrapped up last fall? Not to get too braggy, but it’s pretty stinkin’ fab. DIY floating wood vanity. Linen nook. Pristine, white tile. It’s my heaven…but I have to be honest with you now that we are 3 year old friends: I haven’t once taken a shower in this glistening dream come true of mine. Not once.



When the bathroom was almost a wrap, I whipped up a super cute (and super simple) shower curtain by hemming both ends of a few yards of fabric with a sewing machine and hanging across the top of the shower with a tension rod…

With so many other little to-dos on the list and then the holidays and then a kitchen reno, I never quite got around to hanging a shower curtain liner…until now. After all, I can think of no better way to celebrate a blogiversary than to scrub-a-dub paint out of my hair in a shiny new shower.

My shower is extra tall (like owner, like shower), so I had to splurge on an extra long shower curtain. No biggie. Bed Bath & Beyond had tons.

Since the liner would not be nearly as heavy as all of the fabric I used for the curtain, I used a smaller tension rod.

A look-see from the inside…

I guess if my OCD ever gets the best of me and I can’t stand seeing the liner from the outside, I could always install a hook on the inside to hold it back…

But for now, I’m a happy camper. A clean happy camper.

It looks really good. Out of curiosity why didn't you hang the second rod right behind the first rod to hide it completely?

Happy Blogiversary! :)

Great question! The liner wasn't quite long enough to reach all the way to the top even though I bought and extra long liner. I'm telling you, this is one tall shower. Before I gutted the shower, the ceiling and shower head were super low so the extra height made a big difference in making the entire room feel larger.

Thanks for stopping by, Andie!
