Here's a little mock-up of the plan:
brutal ruffle attack and attached it to the top and bottom of the gray curtain (removing just a few gray ruffles).
Okay, so "I" didn't do it exactly. I took it to a seamstress because (a) I was afraid to mess it up. Simple enough reason, right? (b) Sprawling around 9" of fabric was just asking for another chomp-fest from the bulldog.
Here's why I thought the extra height would work in our space:
- All the white (floors, sink, walls) made the gray curtain appear a bit shorter than I liked.
- Just like window curtains, hanging your shower curtain higher capitalizes on tall ceilings and "draws the eye up" as they say.
- Plus (I haven't shown you this before) the white vent in the shower was such a sharp contrast against the dark gray walls it was screaming for attention . Don't believe me?
|This was taken before before we replaced the white curtain with|
the gray curtain. (Excuse the ladder... we were installing
the chandelier. Vent: "Look at me! I'm a conversation piece!"
And here's the "after".
Probably one of the easiest updates we've made. Yay for that! Lemons out of lemonade. Ruffles out of ruffle-ade. Or whatever.
Anyone else tried an extra-long or custom shower curtain?
