Oh Woe Is My Shower Curtain...

Here is my downstairs guest bath - I like the way the previous owners updated the counter with a nice granite (I think they replaced all the baths with granite remnants, none are the same, but all are pretty) and painted the cabinets.

Here it is while we were looking at the house:

(They were potty seat up people - we are potty seat down people, do you have a preference?)

Here is is after we moved in with the shower curtain from our previous house:

Now - I saw this inspirational picture of an extra-long shower curtain that Young House Love used to hide that unsightly gap between the top of the shower curtain and the shower ceiling:

 I bought that shower curtain:

and after a "Target shipped to my old address, was it really my fault, but the new owners of my old home now have some new towels and an extra long shower curtain" debaucle - it finally arrived here! It's extremely wrinkled, but it's here. And if I'm just trying it out, do I really need to iron it to get the full effect? Maybe...cause I'm NOT lovin' it!

And how hideous is that towel bar that I have trained my brain to ignore? Should we replace it with a pretty one, or totally take it out? I was planning on some monogrammed towels there, but it would only be decorative. The functional towel bar is on the back of the door.

The walls now are Gourmet Mushroom, a discontinued SW color that is a nice beigey gray that I will leave, but modify.  Here is what I have planned for the walls:

Here is shower curtain option #2. I was thinking I might add a nice strip of patterned scrolly black and white fabric to the bottom to make it that extra long length:

Too frou frou foofy?

Any suggestions here, please!?


  1. Why don't you paint the towel bar to match the mirror?

  2. Oh and I like shower curtain #2. You could put a pattern fabric at the bottom or hang it at the normal level and make a valance to hang on a tension rod at the ceiling.

  3. Don't hate me, but I kinda sorta (okay, I do) prefer the red curtain. I do however, like the idea of extra long shower curtains, and black accents would be a very nice addition.

    Pay close attention to the care label - I purchased a white waffle weave shower curtain for the guest bath and it shrunk like crazy when I washed/dried it. Hope that doesn't happen to you.

    Love the wood floor you added. It looks much better.

  4. I think I would like the curtain hung just below the soffit (?) instead of hung at the ceiling. There seems to be something odd going on there for me.. Do you have a light inside the shower? So it's not SO dark in there? Can't wait to see the stripes painted! Those are great!

  5. I like the idea of the longer curtain. My DIL had this same Target one in their bath. When it was washed it shrunk terribly and was a wrinkled mess. She had to throw it away. Just a fair warning!

  9. I love the idea of matching your shower curtain to your bath towels. :)) It looks wonderful to me. You create a great theme for your bathroom by simply doing that. Nice one! I wonder what's new on your bathroom at the moment. Have you found another lovely idea?

  10. Does youг ωebsite havе a сontаct рage?
    I'm having problems locating it but, I'd lіkе to ѕend yοu an emаil.

  15. I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that'ѕ both educativе anԁ entertаіning, аnd lеt mе tell yоu, you
