Before and After Shower Curtain


Before - You can see how I lowered the curtian and tried to use ribbon to fill in the empty space.


After photos show the add on black silk panel(no more machine washing!)and coordinating ribbon

As some of you know, I had a problem with a decorative shower curtian that I made for our home. After I washed it, it shrunk no less than 8 inches!

My inspiration for this project came from Rhoda's blog. Her Mother made her beautiful curtains that happened to be in the same toile fabric as my shower curtain and looked so elegant with a top panel that I could not wait to redo mine. Thank you again Rhoda!

Julie, thank you for stopping by. I am working on my bathroom right now and I found some black velvet curtains and I want to find some really cool bead trim for them. I'm going with a black and brown with a silver accent. Since I onced lived in New Orleans, Fleur de Lis are very popular decor right now. Love what you did with your curtains. Hugs, Pat
