Shower Curtain Curtains

I was instantly inspired by this post at If you haven't checked out her blog, you should. Period. Everything she does is amazing. She updated a bathroom with her friend recently, and one part really stuck out for me...

Curtains over the bathtub!

I have this exact same set up in my master bathroom and it is exactly what that room needed! So, in typical Andrea fashion, I got right to work on it. I found a cute curtain rod at Lowe's on sale for $8.64 and had the handy hub hang it so it could fit 63" curtains (which I didn't have at the time). Unlike Centsational Girl, I don't sew, so it was not even an option for me to hem 84" curtains like she did (maybe in my next life I will learn :). However, my quest to find cute, patterned, 63" curtains turned out to be harder than I thought...

Then, my to my luck, my mom and I were shopping at the Crate and Barrel Outlet this week and came across some cute shower curtains on sale. I mean really on sale-$6.95 each!!! So, I started to think about what shower curatins would look like on the window. Hmmmmm......

I bought two of them just because I had to try it! Shower curtains are 72", so I wasn't sure if they were going to hang down too long, but they ended up being just perfect. I decided to hang them from ring clips and put one on every space you would normally put a shower curtain ring. How easy is that for getting them equal distance apart!

Purchased 2 packages of 12 clips at Hobby Lobby for $6.99 each

These turned out exactly how I imagined, and I don't really think you can tell they are shower curtains! It was just the punch that our master bathroom needed! What do you think??


  1. Cute, cute, cute! Great idea and an inexpensive alternative :)

  2. Love it! Great choice in curtain fabric and what a deal! Your 'shower curtain' secret is safe with me, and actually a great idea, no ned to worry about moisture!!!


  3. Wow great fabric curtain choice! They turned out really nice!

  4. That's awesome! I've seen some really pretty fabric shower curtains out there and nobody would ever know the difference! Great idea!

    happy day!

  5. Love the shower curtain idea. I have the exact same set up with the window over the tub. I really love this idea and I am going to use it, THANK YOU. Last summer I was trying to hang a curtain on my windows (I have a tiled ledge around my spa tub), I had the rod with the curtains on it over my shoulder standing on the ledge and I fell smack HARD onto my tile floor and I broke my left hip. They first put in three screws (which didn't work) then I had to go back in and have a total hip replacement. Please eveyone be careful and make sure you have a good footing when trying to do someting like this. I can tell you it has been a real NIGHTMARE to say the least. I am doing well now, not totally back to normal but I am dying to still change my bathroom window. So I am going to use your idea and have my hubby hang it for me. I am not taken anymore chances with climbing. Sorry for the long post but the fall is sill with me when I think of hanging curtains. Love your site and look forward to seeing more of what you do.
    Best wishes

    1. Debra-I loved this simple idea too! There are so many cute and inexpensive shower curtains on the market that would spruce up any room. Sorry to hear about your troubles with hanging curtains-leave that job to your hubby! Thanks for stopping by!
