The new shower curtain

Well as Guppy talked about in this post . I have the decorating bug again . I have been itching to redecorate the main bathroom in this house since we moved in . The fact that the room already had the shower curtain and bath rugs and wall paper border up and it all matched ,I left it for a bit until I could figure out what I wanted . We both hate it though, so now is the time for a change in there . A few months ago we were out shopping around and stopped in to Bed Bath and Beyond and I found a shower curtain I really liked.I thought ,well I will think about this for a bit ( the curtain was $50.00) and see what I can come up with to compliment my shower curtain . So I spent months thinking about colors for the walls,rug colors , accessories all the way down to the proper shower curtain hooks and new hardware on the cabinets . I had it all planned out in my head and I was convinced and ready to go spend $50.00 on this shower curtain .I think that is a lot of money to spend on a shower curtain myself so I needed backup ..lol My mother-in-law likes decorating as much as I do and we both value each others opinion in the process as well . We were out looking for some accessories for her new office and some things to put on her bakers rack in her kitchen, so I asked her to stop by with me and check out this shower curtain . We get there and we do not see it ..I was like No way is this happening ..lol I had the whole room planned out in my head after months of thinking this thing out and it has been discontinued ...Well doesn't that just figure ...So we find a salesperson and I start describing the shower curtain to them ..I get a blank stare like" hey lady who cares about a stupid shower curtain that I have never heard of " ...I get pushed off on three different people before this lady tells me to go see this bald guy in drapes that's helping a customer . Well we get there and wait for him ( he wasn't even close to bald by the way ) I must have looked /sounded desperate for this curtain because he took pity on me and walked over to see one that I said was similar and then got online and brought up the website and started going through for me until we found it ...YEAH not so bald BB&B guy !!! He found out it was discontinued but showed me what stores had them and how many . I was excited , can you tell ..lol All this over a friggen shower curtain even . Just so you all know , I do not usually get this excited over a shower curtain ok ...lol I Do however get something in my head and freak slightly when my plan or whatever gets a kink thrown in ..lol Especially when I have planned for months and got my heart set on it . Soooooooo for the next few days I thought ok is this the one ...For sure . I mean it IS $50.00 for a damn shower curtain and all ..I could probably find a cheaper one and design a room just as cute I'm sure . We had seen a very cute one on our shopping trip with his mom that only cost $10.00.I tried to plan that bathroom possiblilty in my head but I kept coming back to the one I had spent so much time on . I finally said that's it ...I am getting that curtain and going with it . We drove up and barely got there before they closed, and grabbed it ..On the way back we get stuck in construction traffic .GRRRRR It was approaching 10 pm before we got home that night so it gave me a lot of time to now second guess if I had done the right thing ..I know you are probably thinking wow she thinks way to much about a damn shower curtain ..lol Truth is I love doing interior decorating and I do think on it to much I am sure ,but the end result is always awesome ,so it is well worth it .Guppy decides to hang it and see what we think .I think I made the right choice .I really did like it after it was hanging in our bathroom. I ran out the next day and got some paint chips ...lol I am so ready to do this .I think we have the perfect color picked we are just playing with shades of that color now ...Can't figure out if maybe we should go a little darker or a little lighter but we will get there . I know that they now have little sample paints that you can buy to take home and try . I may get a few shades and paint a stripe or two on the wall and see what we think . I am just happy that it is finally coming together :)
If you are at all curious now as to what the famous curtain looks like you can see it here . I will take pics of the process as well as we start the project ..( I should have taken pics while the old curtain was up) ...Anyway I will keep you posted . :)
Have a Great Saturday People !!!!!!

  1. OH wow I love that curtain! I think when the room is done and you see how good it looks, it will all be worth it! I would love to redecorate the house we just moved into, but I haven't had a chance yet. Now that my daughter's quinceanera is done though.....SOMEBODY STOP ME!

  3. I like it! It's definitely not your usual color/pattern (I tend toward the Finding Nemo motif, which explains why my wife refuses to allow me to have any input into these decisions. She is a wise woman.)

    Michele sent me today. I send myself the rest of the time. Good to be back!

  6. Oh... the obsessive woman that I married.... The fun part will be the search for the accesories.... Gotta have the right shower curtain hooks... Porcelin water faucet looking things.... Gotta get the right stuff for the counters... the towels... the floor rugs.... etc, etc etc....

    It's all good though... We'll have fun doing it.

    Michele sent me this time...

    I love you baby!

  8. Don't you just LOVE Bed Bath and Beyond? THey are a little pricey though. But you know if you had bought the $10 curtain, everytime you looked at it you would have thought of the one you really wanted. It was worth it.

  11. Hi Michele sent me. I hate the bathroom in my house too. Hopefully we'll be renovating again soon. But I hate renovation too, as much as I hate the bathroom, quite the dilemma.
