Look What I Did~

Okay, so first of all, I have to tell you that my dear Nikon D60 is back!! Healed and ready to par-tay! I got her back yesterday and ran around snapping photos of all of my accumulated projects! Hooray!!! New photos to come!!!

Now on to today's fun...

Do you all remember this shower curtain from Target?


I promised that I had something in mind for it... Here's what I did...


I made curtains for my Master Bedroom by cutting the shower curtain in half because I have two windows in my room, cutting the bottom 18" off (it wasn't long enough and I had something else in mind) and adding some of this great linen that I used for my n0-sew bedskirt pictured below.




This is my reading nook...doesn't my crown pillow look so Shabby Cute on my white slipcovered chair? (but I digress.)



So what did I do with the 18" I cut off, you ask?

Why I made more pillows OF COURSE!!



My master is getting closer to being finished!! Oh what a little shower curtain can do.


Have a great Wednesday~

Those "curtains" are GORGEOUS! I love them. What a great idea. I am currently trying to decide what to do in our master bedroom in the curtain department. I bought some curtains from Goodwill the other day but I haven't put them up to see if I will like them yet. Great project. You are so creative.

OK, that's so cute! Attic Gal Alysa has the same shower curtain!

Chandy said...

You just gave me a great idea! Thank you. DH wanted a brown/turquoise look in the master but I haven't found a design I like. I'll have to be on the lookout for something like yours...

I'll have before pics of my dresser redo... sort of a motivation to get them painted so I can get "after" pictures. Looking good! Trip planned yet? Looking forward to seeing you (between all of your wedding soiree's).

I've thought about using shower curtains to make regular window curtains but just never had the courage to do so. Thanks for posting! :)

Cute! I got your paypal email and will be paying you shortly. I need to wait til my husband gets home, I don't know the password! Also, we are going to be gone all next week. Could you mail the birdies at the end of next week so we are home to receive them? That would be great. Thanks again! I can't wait to see them.

Misti of Studio M Designs said...

Great job Wendy! Fabric is fabric...and you made great use of this shower curtain. I even keep my husband's old dress shirts, they are great fabric for projects.

Good job.

Oh how I love that shower curtain. I have it in my guest bathroom and I'm so glad I snatched it up at Target! :)

Stacy said...

Yay girl! I LOVE what you did with it!!! Great job! I adore the linen with the birdies.

Love it!

~Stacy

Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

LOVE it!! Those colors are great in a master bedroom...very soft and soothing. Fantastic job ---are the tops just ring clips?? (couldn't see very well) When you did your pillows, did you use a pillow form, or did you just stuff 'em? I am inspired! :)

{ Kiddos and K9s } said...

seriously.... AWESOME. ~ kim

Ms. Tee said...

what a darling idea! And I see your 3 little prints on the wall, too - it's all so pretty! P.S. so happy you got your camera back! :)

Stacey @ The Blessed Nest said...

I love it! What a fun fabric that is!! You know I love a pretty birdie! :) Your bedroom looks so pretty, you did a great job!

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Okay ladies!! The shower curtain was from Target...but all sold out! I was lucky enough to have my good bloggy friend Stacy from 19Butternut send me one (Thanks again girl!!)
Amanda... Those pillows are just stuffed. I sometimes use pillow forms, but I am kind of a "by the seat of my pants" seamstress so stuffing pillows is easier because I don't have to worry about making them a certain size.

3LittleByrds said...

Love what you did with the shower curtain. So creative. I have the same curtain in my bathroom and I love it.

Rose Charles said...

bet you are glad to have the camera back!

Reese & Marie said...

I love that shower curtain, obviously, but I love even more what you've done with it! So creative and really pretty. Glad you have your camera back - what a relief, huh?

msbits said...

that is gorgeous! do you think you could tell me where you go the shower curtain? i've been wanting to redo our bathroom. it's been the same since i got married and being a supportive wife, i let my husband choose. four years of safari has been long enough!:D thanks!

Sarah said...

I love how it has all come together!!! Do tell about the no sew bed skirt! I am due for a new one very soon! :)

Montee said...

Great job! I used a shower curtain for my daughter's bedroom a few years ago and it turned out nice. Sheets and shower curtains are great!

Christina said...

Just wonderful. I love the shower curtain as curtains. Love the addition of a solid color at the bottom.

Shelia said...

It all looks wonderful!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

~Carole said...

You are truly a genius! I've used a shower curtain as a table cloth, but not curtains. Great idea!

Sarah @ Thrifty Decor Chick said...

Just beautiful! I love the pillow with the bird perfectly set in the middle. Love!

Kara said...

Definitely the cutest use for a shower curtain that I have ever seen! Lovely!

Wendy said...

That is so darling! I'm crazy about the curtains and the pillow! Ü

Robin said...

good idea. The pillow has me going crazy, I just love the print.

Mama said...

The curtains are so pretty,now I know what to do for my room.Also what is the color on the walls?Thanks

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Hi Mama...
I have to be honest...the color on the walls was here when we moved in. It's not as pretty as it looks in the photos and is going to be repainted soon. ;-)

Fabulous idea to use the bottom fabric from your curtain to make pillows! I bet it looks so cute and really ties the spaces together!

I have a shabby shower curtain curtain hanging in our guest room. No one can ever guess that it is a shower curtain! It even has the plastic piece along the holes for the rings at the top still on it. I just hung it with ribbon.

What a great idea for a shower curtain.

Great idea for the shower curtain.
I like these color combos, the blues with beige, browns , white and blue.
I am about to redo our master and it is going to be some of those colors.
