I am trying out a couple of curtain choices for the window in our ensuite bath. I like the white 2" thick wood blinds, but I would like to keep the blinds slightly open all the time for more natural light. We have neighbours so I was hoping a light curtain would still allow light in and provide some privacy. Not having to step in the tub every night to close the blinds would be a bonus, too.
Just a warning though, these are quick iPhone photos on a somewhat overcast day so the pretty pale aqua wall colour has been distorted trying to lighten the photos. You may also notice thatthe curtains are wrinkly but this is just a trial so I'm not worried about it.
I am shopping our home and using items from my supplies in this mini makeover. The black curtain rod and clips match the towel ring, tissue holder and wall hooks. I just need to locate the finials.
This vintage tablecloth was a thrift store find and has some lovely cutwork and embroidery detailing.
What I don't love is that it is short and lets less light in.
The pair of sheers are more than long enough, puddling on the tub tile, but I could shorten them or pull them up and back. I really like how they will provide privacy but still allow more light in.
These brackets are for two shelves I am adding to the tub wall opposite the arch top mirror. I plan to add white towels, pretty baskets and a few milk glass containers for storage. Our 15 year old son hung the brackets for me and I painted pine shelves, but after I put the shelves up I really wasn't liking it. I am pretty sure that the shelves were just too big and too deep.
I am going to try again with narrower shelves and see if I like it. If not, there will be some patching and paint touch up in my near future.
I would love to know which curtain choice you prefer, or if you think I am crazy for even adding one!
