Bathroom Musings

I used to go through shower curtains at a sprinter's pace. Buy one, it gets moldy, throw it away and get another. And the mid-priced ones I purchased were never THE ONE. THE ONE I really wanted was a bright white matelasse at around $100 . . . ugh. I debated the splurge and came up with my justification list: that 1) it would match my bedspread, 2) I could easily wash it, 3) it would go with everything in case I wanted to change up the bathroom decor, and 4) — and the big aha moment — was that I could buy shower curtain liners at the dollar store. What I invested in the matelasse curtain (which, by the way, I got for well under $100 when it went on sale and I had a coupon) and put into dollar liners is way cheaper than buying and replacing all the mid-priced ones. I'm currently using these pretty Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic shower curtain hangers.
A wonderful mirror idea that I discovered and put to use in my bathroom is from a company called MirrorMate that creates custom frames to disguise those horrible flat, frameless mirrors those of us in 70's-built homes are stuck with. I purchased one for my one bathroom and it was a piece of cake to put together and it helps to make my Brady Bunch bathroom look a little more up to date.

I like the mirror idea. I don't comment as often as I do a great job with your blog.
