Do you ever try to do something good, it turns out bad, but then you fix and it's better than where you started?
I know, I know, this sounds a little convoluted but let me explain.
I bought this great blue striped shower curtain about 3 years ago when we were showing our last home for sale. I loved it when I bought it. Now I'm going to admit something and don't judge me please...I washed this shower curtain for the first time a couple of months ago. I admit it's gross, but to give myself some credit, this had been very rarely used since my boys take baths, not showers.
Plus, I'm glad that I hadn't washed it since after the.very.first.wash (piece of ****) the thing shrunk up about 4 inches! It looked horrible. Ya know, like flood pants except in shower curtain form. Did I mention I can't stand to see anyone in pants that are too short? Just a bit of my OCD showing.
Well, I came up with a solution since I really didn't want to spend any money on a shower curtain. I also still love the blue stripes of the short one. What to do? Well remember the drop cloth I bought for the guest room curtains? I just happened to have a bit left over. I just sewed my extra drop cloth material onto the bottom of the shower curtain. The brownish color of the drop cloth happens to be the same as some of the thin stripes running through the curtain. A very happy coincidence.
Just disregard the horrible flooring in this room. It's another one of those projects on my "list".
I think I might actually like the shower curtain better now than what it looked like originally. So see? This went from good to bad to better. I love it when than happens. Mostly, because things just don't work out for me this way very often. :)
Full length goodness...I'm happy.
It's even better that this fix only took me about 20 minutes, and didn't cost a dime!
Teaching myself to sew is working out for me so far. I can't believe it took me so long.
