My New Embellished Shower Curtain

So, last year I painted the kids' bathroom red and was on the hunt for a new shower curtain.  I looked all over for one that was black and white ticking, but I couldn't find one.  I finally broke down and bought some black and cream ticking and made my own.  I had company coming and needed something quick, so I settled for the cream.  I liked it initially, but after a few months it just seemed so dark in there.  The cream really felt heavy and dark and dingy in such a small room.  The post about this curtain is here.  Here's the picture, but you can't tell much about it here. 

Anyway, I've been searching for MONTHS to find a new one that I liked.  I love my red paint and wanted a curtain with a lot of color.  Something like...

that had both red and aqua, which is my favorite color combination as of late.  So, I found the above online and immediately headed to the brick and mortar store to see it in person.  But, once I got there I realized that the red in the curtain did not match the red paint.  UGH!  Back to square one.

So, I explained the situation to Hubby and with company coming next week, I decided that I just needed to give up my beloved red paint and repaint something else.  Hubby quickly explained that he was NOT going to have time to help me and talked me out of repainting, which frankly didn't take much because I HATE to paint.  So, the only other option was to make my own curtain again, but I couldn't find any fabric I liked again.  So, I decided to embellish a plain white curtain.  I bought my white shower curtain and I bought my supplies.

That gift bag sort of served as my inspiration.  I bought paint in the same red as my bathroom walls, aqua and an apple green.  I spray painted my collection of buttons and VERY randomly attached them to the plain white curtain.  I sewed the big ones and got lazy and hot glued the little ones.  I added ribbon and ric rac to the top.  Wanna see?

Wanna closer look?

I did also grab a few little buckets from Target's Dollar Spot and a few hand towels.

Wow, I need some artwork.  I'll work on that next week.  I think the kids will like the bright colors so much better than the black and cream.  So, what do you think?  Do I need more buttons?  Any suggestions? 

Y'all have a great weekend!  I'm linking this post to:

  1. I think your project turned out great. It is SO cute! I love colorful buttons :)
    And I love the little buckets and towels you got from Target.
    I've been toying with the idea of changing my kids' bathroom and haven't really come up with an idea I like. Everythng my daughter wants is pink and girly, which does not make my son happy! Your project is giving me some ideas. Thanks for the inspiration :)
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Well, look at you "Little Miss Crafty Diva"! You have done a superb job on the shower curtain...I love it! Wouldn't change a thing! I love how you put hand towels in the silver bucket as well as toothbrushes and such in the green one...super cute! You defintely get a hearty BRAVO from me! :)

  3. Oh I love it! The shower cutain is super cute and I love the colors you used! Visting from Amanda's Weekend Bloggy party!

  4. It looks perfect just the way it is! I love the bright colors against the white background.

  5. ADORABLE!!! If you feel like it needs something, how about taking grosgrain ribbon in your colors, and make simple bows or just tie a short ribbon onto each shower hook? Alternate so you have all the colors, and I think they will really pop!
    I love the button idea; you are so clever!
    I like the red, too!

  6. BRILLIANT!! I love how it turned out and I love (even more) that you made it!

  7. LOVE!!! The white shower curtain really brightens everything up, Tanya. You did a great job. :) Love all the cute accessories too!

    Thanks for sharing!

  8. What a great idea! Great job too! Looking forward to seeing what kind of artwork you put in there.

  9. How did I miss this? It's so cute!

  10. What a beautiful shower curtain.
