Phew, it’s been a big week friends! Did you catch my post yesterday sharing my big news- I’m excited to be contributing to two excellent sites, Remodelaholic and Honest to Nod! I shared my full bathroom makeover on Remodelaholic yesterday (well, at least Phase 1!) and as promised, today I’m sharing the DIY instructions to make your very own Extra Long Custom Design Shower Curtain! Let’s start with- why on earth you would want a longer shower curtain than normal (if for some reason, you don’t already see how AWESOME that would be).
One of the things that drove us completely crazy with our old shower is that the shower head was SO low. Both my hubby and I are fairly tall, so having to bend down to wash our hair was a pain. We put our shower head higher than average (such a good decision!) and tiled right to our ceiling. We love the way this looks, but a standard height towel bar and shower curtain looked silly with the change. I couldn’t find a longer shower curtain anywhere, so I decided to make one. The longer curtain looks custom and high end in comparison to a standard short shower curtain. I love the way it turned out- the look of the longer curtain pulls the whole bathroom together. Plus- I wasn’t limited in patterns, I could pick from any fabric because we use a shower curtain liner inside the tub.
