little things mean a lot

It's the little things.
Like a NEW piece of fabric on the plastic "wicker like" shade.


This is my inexpensive window covering
in the bathroom.
I love it.

All I did was finish the edges of a rectangle of fabric
and tacked it on to a plastic roll up shade.
I made about 5 little stitches in the top to hold it on.
simple.


Then....
 after NOT finding a bath mat that I liked.....
I went digging in my stash of
upholstery samples and found this one!
Oh Good!
It's nice and LONG.

I pillow cased an old towel on the back.
The back doesn't look to hot...
but no one will be looking there.
;)

Viola!

Look!
I even had enough of that shade fabric to
add to the bottom of a shower curtain in the other bathroom!!!

See?
Little things DO mean a LOT!
At least at MY house they do!

Total cost of this home re-do:

$6 for shade fabric.
$3 for white shower curtain at the thrift store.

  9. that's how I like to do it to, simple cheap but effective. I love the colors. I've seen painted blinds too but yours is faster.
