Weekend Wonders: Shower Curtain

     Weekend Wonders is a series I'm starting to motivate me and anyone else that wants to tackle a project this weekend! I'll start with a preview post on Fridays about the project that I hope to complete and will follow up early the next week with the progress I made or a finished product post.

     This weekend's task has been put on the back burner for absolutely wayyyy to long. Its kind of ridiculous actually. We have been living without a proper shower curtain for months now because I am in love with the idea of a ruffled shower curtain, but have held back for two reasons. The first reason is that the boyfriend has an aversion to ruffles for some reason? Weird huh? The second reason being that the beautiful ruffle shower curtain at Urban Outfitters (pictured below) that we've all seen is out of my price range and I can't justify spending that much when I could just sit down and sew it myself. So I have declared that this is the weekend that I will tackle the shower curtain! Look at me, declaring something! Another factor is that I love the UO ruffle shower curtain but I've tweaked the idea a little to incorporate a hint of a modern pattern that I'm kind of in love with right now. You guessed it... Chevron!

Here are some shower curtains that I'm drawing inspiration from:

Here is what I will be using as a starting point...

 This is a queen set of white sheets that I found on the Target clearance isle for less than FIVE DOLLARS!! Don't believe me? Check out that beautiful red tag below!

... After all this blog is about design on a budget! Let's see what I can come up with! Check back next week for the reveal! Hopefully it will be a mix of romantic ruffles and modern lines. If that makes any sense! Ha! If you guys are going to tackle a project this weekend I'd love to see them! Just leave me a link in the comment section and I'll check it out. Have a good weekend everyone!
