Total Basset Case: Scrub a Dub Dub

Jul 11, 2013

Scrub a Dub Dub

As a designer, I'm constantly itching to change things around in our house.
Unfortunately, money doesn't grow on trees in our house so I can't do all the crazy things I think up.
BUT I do like the challenge of spicing things up on a budget.
My latest obsession is my bathroom (yes 'my' bathroom- we don't share bathrooms and hopefully never will. Boys, ew yuck).

I am itching for a total make over a new shower curtain and to slap some paint on the walls.
If someone could riddle me why shower curtains are the hardest things to find I'd like to hear it.
I don't think I'm overly picky but it takes me forever to find one I love (that isn't a million dollars).
If I'm going to stare at it multiple times a day, I better love it.

I am envisioning bright colors, stripes and a bright color on the wall.
Right now I have a brown, blue, cream polka dot curtain and it's days of being welcome and making me smile are long gone.

So the search begins and here is what I've narrowed it down to.
And now I need your input....which is your favorite?
And don't all jump at once to come help me paint!
But if you do I can promise wine and basset kisses. #justsaying

Shower Selections
1 | 2 | 3 | 4

Do you think that maybe I have a thing for coral and stripes these days?
So which is your favorite?

**And we wanted to send some extra love and hugs to our girl Kait today. She lost her precious, bff, Maddie yesterday and our hearts just ache for them. Maddie was an extremely special girl and will be very, very missed.
xoxo

As for the curtains, I like #2 and #4 best. For #2, you could pull in some navy accent pieces for decor.

I'm so sorry to hear about Maddie :( Love and hugs to your friend Kait.

I'm loving Number 2! It would be a nice little pop against a bold wall color! Number 4 is just a gorgeous color combo itself. So really you can't go wrong with either!!

My mom tells a story of when her and my dad were first married she bought a new shower curtain for $75. My dad almost had a heart attack... we still have said shower curtain in a box because my mom cant seem to part with it.

I LOVE the paisley one!! So cute!

I love 3 and 4. I think 3 is a lot of fun and would look gorgeous. 4 is a bit more subtle and I love coral too!!

Lauren said...

I love #3, but I'd probably lean towards #2 just because it's a bit more classic. And lucky you not having to share a bathroom! It's definitely not the best part of marriage. ;)

So funny that you posted this today because I was just thinking last night that we needed a new shower curtain! I like #1 and #4 :D

I think three is very eye catching and would be a great focal point in a bathroom - I miss picking out shower curtains, we have a door.

Condolences to your friend over the loss of her fur baby. :(

Kait said...

Oh here come the tears again...thank you

Kait said...

My comment got cut off because I'm on my phone. Thank you for being such a good friend to both of us. Maddie is eating Rwizzlers as we speak

OOOh I love 4! I really need (want) a new curtain in the upstairs bathroom but the one we have is fine for now so it's hard to justify. I'll have to wait until we upgrade the whole bathroom (hopefully soon!)

#4!!! So cute!

& so sorry to hear about Maddie. :(

Elisabeth said...

Love the 4th one!

Ohmygoodness, please come over and just re-decorate my entire apartment, please?! OK, great, thanks!

Anne said...

I'm with you - why are shower curtains so hard?! These colors and patterns are all super fab though (you know I love some coral too); I think I like 1 and 4 best.

Of course I choose #3. It's probably the most feminine and has the most color options to pull paint and accessory colors. What color are you thinking for the walls? That will help you determine, also. Have fun!

I love #3 and #4!!!
