You remember my bathroom makeover, right? What I didn’t tell you was how darn hard it was to find shower curtains that were NOT the standard size of 72″.
I went into multiple stores and was extremely disappointed with the lack of selection. When I finally did come across 96″ shower curtains, they were usually solid colours of either white or beige (errr not what I was looking for).
So here’s how I took an ordinary shower curtain and transformed it into a beautiful ceiling-to-floor bathroom curtain.
First, I found a really cute shower curtain. This one is from Target.
With scissors in hand, I cut the shower curtain directly in half. Make sure you cut as straight as you possibly can.
Next I found this sheer window covering at my local fabric store, FabricLand, which matched the colour of my shower curtain perfectly.
I measured and cut out the exact amount I needed in order to get a total of 96″. I wanted to make pleats so I overlapped the material every few inches.
I also picked up this wonderful HeatnBond tape. My new favourite product, may I add! It’s a quick and easy way to hem without sewing!
Just add the tape to the pieces you want to bond together and use an iron to activate the glue. In my case, I attached the extension at the bottom of the shower curtain and I also used it to create a straight hem on the edges I cut.
And voila! You’re done!
Have you used this “iron on” tape before? What did you use it on?
