DIY Shower Curtain for Boys’ Bathroom

Well, I finally made a shower curtain for the boys’ bathroom. 

Because we built our own shower, it wasn’t a regular size.  I knew I would have to make a custom shower curtain to fit it.  I also knew that I wanted to do some type of horizontal stripes on the shower curtain. 

So I was super excited when I found two window curtain panels that were extra long at Marshall’s for $25!  I KNEW I could turn these window curtains into a shower curtain. 


Where, here is where I should show you the complete tutorial of how I did it, but I don’t have any photos.  

I know.  HUGE blogger fail.  :(

Let me explain.  I DID take pictures. 

I just can’t find them.  

But I do have pictures of the finished shower curtain.


 I didn’t even use a sewing machine to make this curtain!  I just used fusing tape to attach one curtain panel to the other curtain panel. 

And I bought a grommet kit from Hobby Lobby to create the hole for the rings at the top of the shower curtain. 

We had to purchase the shower curtain rod online.

 The curtain works perfectly for this space.  We are very glad that we tore the tub out and created a corner shower.

Cy built the vanities himself, and installed a butcher block countertop.  As you can see, we decided to leave the countertop natural instead of staining it.

 We still need to figure out what type of lights to put above the mirrors.

 And I am going to install a window shade this weekend.

I am decorating the bathroom for Christmas and will share it next week.

 But for now, the boys are loving their new space.  They each have their own baskets full of their own toiletries.  Luke and Adam on the left, and Jonathan and Eli on the right.  :)

 I will share more details about the bathroom soon, but I have a lot of Christmas decorating to do today.  The boys will kill me if I don’t have their Christmas stockings hung when they get home from school today.  :)

Have a wonderful day!!


  1. Love your decorating style, Traci. Your home is so warm and inviting. Can’t wait to see your home all ready for Christmas!

  2. The whole thing is just perfect. The shower curtain completes the look and I can’t wait to see the window treatment.

  3. Great bathroom! We are re-doing a bathroom very similar to that as well. I am getting ready to order the austin barn lamp from, and I think that same light would look great in your bathroom. Could you please tell me where you got the tile for your floors?

  4. Can you tell me how you built the Vanities? The full instructions. I am a DIY er and I am going to redo the only bathroom in my 1950’s home. I have never done anything like this before but I think I can build that vanity. Thank you so much!

  5. I absolutely LOVE that bathroom… It’s just what I want, and I think you’re amazing to think of it and then actually do it! Do you remember the name of the paint color?

  6. Hi there, the colour of your vanities is EXACTLY the shade that I’ve been looking for for our new vanity!!! Can you tell me the colour and brand?
    Many thanks!!
