  1. Nice Job Ashley, Thanks for the great ideas! I bought material to make one 10 years ago (embarrassed to say) hope to make one of my own soon, have to move it closer to the top of my list!

  2. I would rather work with wood than sew but the results sure can be rewarding. Bought shower curtains are so inexplicably expensive! I just bought the toilet seat. With 3 kids in diapers, it’s about time I started potty-training one of them. Hopefully you get some kickback on the seat. The link wasn’t coming up so I had to hit the x and then refresh it and then it worked.

    1. I’m not a big fan of sewing either, in fact when I went to add the ribbon I somehow sewed the curtain into itself and had to seam rip both ribbons off and start over, lol. You will love the potty seat, and bless your heart having three in diapers! Whew!

  3. I like your shower curtain – I would not have thought of the two brown ribbons, and they totally make it! I would also like a new one, as we just moved (finally – yay!) and our new bathroom is a totally different colour. The stenciled one would look great in there. Do you know where you can buy inexpensive drop cloths? Everybody seems to be using them, but the ones I’ve looked at weren’t particularly cheap. Do you ever sew things using drop cloths?

    That potty seat is a GREAT idea! I’m going to recommend it to the mother of the triplets I look after. I like that you don’t have to do anything to change it from kid to adult, other than to put down a different seat. That was always such a pain with the one we had, which was the kind that sat on top.

    Thanks for gathering all these ideas together. I have no excuse not to make my own shower curtain now! :)

    1. I used dropcloths to upholster my barstools…I just bought them at Home Depot. They are cheap compared to other thick fabrics, but I didn’t think they were cheap for something you lay on the floor to catch paint. Make sure and wash the dropcloth before you use it, it will shrink a lot and get pretty soft.

      Congrats on finally getting into your new house, that much be such a relief! Now to decorate :)

  4. I am sorry I don’t know how to up-load a picture…but I think I have one of the most beautiful shower curtains around. I brought a quilt from Anna’s Linen’s. It was cheap, less than $30.00 on sale…I added 12 button holes to the top of it. Now it hangs in my bathroom looking great. It hangs to the floor. It is lined on the back with one of the real plastic show curtain liners…it makes my ‘country’ theme bathroom look really pretty. There are many different colors in the quilt at allow me to go with many different colored towels etc.

    1. That’s is s great idea! I’ve seen people make quilts into regular curtains (and loved the look) but never would have thought about a shower curtain.

    2. If you dont mind me asking, How did you line it with a shower curtian liner? This is the part I’m stuck on, Making it waterproof. Thank you!

      1. I didn’t line the actual shower curtain with a liner, I just hung a regular store bought liner behind the shower curtain (on the same hooks).

  5. Great roundup, I’m getting ready to post a tutorial on a DIY shower curtain in the next couple days! What a coincidence, but darn it, I just missed being added to your roundup. ;) I’m sure these would’ve been really help when I was working on it though.

  6. Good job. Love it. I also enjoy that you keep posting.
    I like your site and enjoy that when I “take a look”
    you have something new going on. There are other
    sites I enjoy, but have given up on anything new.
    Good job again. =)

  7. That shower curtain looks great Ashley! I think it’s one of the nicest! I thought a lot of them had too much going on (I saw the ironing aspect..shudder!) and shower curtains should hang to the floor, not on the floor. The one with the “cross” came from the M*A*S*H tent, didn’t it! LOL! Sorry, couldn’t resist!
    That potty seat IS great, my grandkids have one.

  8. Love all the shower curtains, I never really thought about getting super creative with that part of the bathroom! Hmmm…

    Ashley, I just wanted to let you know that I have spent the last week of my life (not a very productive one at work, I might add…) reading through your entire history of posts and have gotten SO many great ideas! I love your projects & that you include all the parts that go wrong. In fact, I am in the middle of a paisley stenciled table of my own:) I have painted the legs & got the stencil in the mail (I also got the dandelion one for another piece of furniture!). I can’t wait to see how it turns out, thank you for the idea!! I promise to link to your site should I put the photo on Facebook or anywhere else (I don’t have a blog).

    Keep up your fantastic work:)

    1. Amanda, that is the best complement ever…that you read a post and then wanted to keep going all week! Good luck with your table, I’m sure it will turn out great. Actually, I haven’t “officially” announced it yet, but I am putting together a post featuring reader projects. If you e-mail me ([email protected]) a pic or two of the finished table I will include it in my round up :)

  9. I saw this and immediately thought of doing it the other way around – turn any (cloth) shower curtain into a window curtain :) That’s cuz I just did that with the curtains for our french doors – added a strip of coordinating fabric to the bottom of two lovely cotton print shower curtains from Target to make them long enough, folded over and sewed down the top hem to hide the buttonholes, added clip rings, voila, speedy magic and the right print for way less than the cost of purchasing an equivalet yardage from Joann’s.

  10. I’m really impressed with your ruffles. You made it sound easy but I am SURE mine would look super wonky. Love the new shower curtain! This roundup makes me want to rip out our shower door so I can make a fun curtain.

  11. These are all adorable- I especially love yours! It looks like it was meant to have the bottom ruffle the whole time. Thanks for sharing!

  12. Hi Ashley !
    Thanks for sharing my shower curtain made from an Ikea throw blanket ! The link brought me back to your site and I love love all the other DIY’s too ! So pretty. I’m inspired. Now I will have to make one for each season. LOL.
    cheers !!

  13. I am looking for ways to update my bathroom and make it look more modern and put together. I loved the idea of the yarn embellished shower curtain. It’s a simple design and has just enough color and uniqueness to give it a modern yet creative flair.
