Shower CurtainWhat did you do today? I finished my dumb shower curtain that was making me nuts!
We knew we were buying a fixer upper. We didn't realize at the time that it was way more fixer than upper but what can ya do? We could see problems we needed to tackle like this upstairs bathroom.
When we looked at the house we thought "Gee, we'll paint over that spongy painting stuff and switch out the vanity and toilet for white and we can live with the yellow for a bit!"
When we got into the house, however, Jim realized that the blue wasn't really sponge painting on drywall. The previous owners had taken down wallpaper but never removed the glue and PAINTED OVER IT. So not only could we just not slap on a coat of paint but it was flaking off and rough to the touch. Wallpaper paste removers/steam/etc. didn't work. So Jim scraped and then we primed it to get it ready for skim coating. And that is where we are left today.
If you want that light fixture email me quickly! I expect to get lots of offers on it. HA HA HA HA! Anyway, so I knew no matter what I was living with the yellow for a while and decided to pick up the pale gray in the floor tile to use as a coordinating color.
I cut apart Jim's bachelor days duvet cover which happens to be pale gray and added some gray/black/yellow pattern fabric ruffles to the bottom to bring some yellow in. I used my button hole foot and settings on the sewing machine to create a way to hang it. Grommets were expensive and this worked really well!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
