Ruffles Repurposed, Shower Curtains Shout Out And Kitchen News

Hi Everyone.  Happy Monday.  Happy New Week.

 I got a nice package in the mail today.  Yep it is some new shower curtains I had made up special for my two bathrooms.  

I also want to show you a DIY I did with some old ruffles off a shower curtain that I repurposed on to an ordinary make up vanity stool.

So here goes.........

Just an ordinary vanity stool from Home Goods.  $29.99 and I had a $20 gift coupon so it brought this stool to a whopping $9.99!!!!

Took the screws out holding the top cushion of the stool.

Had this old shower curtain panel with four rows of ruffles.

Cut the shower curtain ruffles off and just placed them around the top of the stool cushions and staple gunned them onto the bottom of the cushion.  Easy Peasy!!!!!

Ta Da new custom vanity stool with ruffles.


Fits right under the make up vanity built into my bathroom.

This make up seat looks cute with her new ruffles.  Keeping it real in this picture with stuff all over my counter tops.  We are almost done with this master bathroom to show you soon along with the master bedroom.
Now on to the new shower curtains.


I had Terri from Simply French Market make up two shower curtains for my guest bath and master bedroom bath.  Yep Teri does beautiful work and I have gotten shower curtains from her before.

Here is Terri's Etsy  to check out her beautiful work.
simplyfrenchmarket.etsy.com

 Terri did not compensate me in any way for this shout out.  I just like to give recognition of beautiful work I have gotten and info to those of you that might need a new shower curtain.  I would highly recommend Terri.  She does great work and is reasonable with her prices and is quick.



This is the shower curtain from Terri's Etsy site that I bought.




I had three rows of lace I found packed away when we moved.  So I asked Terri if she could some how put the lace onto the shower curtains.  Terri said yes and I sent her the lace and she did a great job layering the three different rows of lace onto the shower curtain ruffle.






I love both of the shower curtains.  Gives a nice look to both my bathrooms.  



  LOL I just noticed in this picture that I took off the vintage hanger hook I had on the old post.  I painted it and forgot to put it back up before I snapped these pictures.
Yikes my mind sometimes!!!!

Have a great week.
I am taking a personal day away from the house tomorrow to spend with a friend.  Love those mental health days!
Hope you have a great week.

The kitchen is done.  I just have a few things to finish up and then I can show you the open shelves and how much of a difference it makes to have them instead of the vintage bakery cabinet.  I will also show you where the vintage bakery cabinet ended up.  So stay tuned.
Kris

  1. Your new shower curtains are gorgeous.....the new vanity stool looks amazing too. I like that you were able to re-use the old shower curtain and make it into something fabulous. I have the same tiered ruffled shower curtain that I am not currently using so I might have to borrow your idea for my vanity stool now :o)

  2. Beautiful shower curtains, Kris. I love how you incorporated your lace into her design. I think you're smart to have them made, I have searched and searched for curtains and I rarely find what I am looking for. I'll have to keep Terri's information on hand! :) Thanks!

  8. Hi Kim! The stool is so cute and probably an easy clean with the shower curtain fabric. Terri is one talented seamstress - so beautiful and so neat that she incorporated your lace. Jane

  15. Genius. Brilliant. INSPIRING!!!!!! AHHHHH! OK, I was never one for a lot of ruffles, believe it or not! I am weird. I am feminine, but there are just some things I could never see in my décor. HOWEVER.

    I am now into vintage French lace (for my photos) but I am starting to feel a pull toward a ruffled bed duvet....maybe for Christmas! But as I see what you did here with this stool, I am blown away by what you did with this. Kris, that is awesome. Now I need to find some ruffles for a project myself! LOTS OF LOVE TO YA!

  24. Both the shower curtains and the stool look very nice. I like seeing projects such as the shower curtains because I'm one of those (apparently) "old school people" who can sew, I look at these for inspiration...and then go make my own and save a ton. :-)

    1. I wish I had the sewing talent but do not so I have to pay for my pretties. So happy you can make something special for yourself after looking at inspiration. Have a great day. Thanks for your visit.

  25. Now those are some beautiful shower curtains! Love the added lace and so fitting for the rooms. Laughed at the missing hook - been there, done that! The ruffled stool is perfect too and can't beat that price! Looking forward to the kitchen reveal but in the meantime, enjoy your girlfriend time.

  41. A pretty petticoat for a rather plain contemporary dressing table stool. What a bit of ruffled linen can bring to the beauty you create.
    Enjoy creating Kris!
