Sometimes, big projects are great because you work so hard for so long but eventually you pick your head up and bam! A huge transformation has occurred and you realize how worth all your blood, sweat and tears were.
Other times, something little can be incorporated and be just the pick-me-up you need. No blood, sweat or tears required. In my case, it was a new shower curtain!
Our last curtain wasn’t terrible, but it defintely wasn’t inspiring. It still exists in this house tour from earlier this year.
We painted our guest bathroom a soft and sunny yellow so it would be clean, bright and warm. But three shower curtains later, I had settled and quit. Finding something that was modern but not industrial, fun but not cartoonish, maybe botanical but not Asian or country.
But now, I can’t help but grin going past the room thanks to a $14 find at Target.
Here’s a fun side-by-side for comparison.
It even ties to the rest of our house palette really well:
- the green from the living room;
- the dark tan from the kitchen and dining rooms;
- the lighter blue from the master bath and living and dining rooms accent;
- the darker blue from the guest room, the living room accent and the office; and
- the lighter tan from the hallway in which the bathroom resides.
Not to mention those sweet little birds. I think they’re are so cute and I’m not saying I won’t name them eventually because I’m crazy that way.
I wasn’t shopping for a shower curtain but I couldn’t let it go. I know it might not be everyone’s perfect shower curtain but it defintely making me smile these days.
