striped bathroom!

last week, i promised better 'after' photos of this fun beige-and-white striped bathroom. emily's bathroom had some older fixtures, so she and her mom came up with the idea to hang a shower curtain in place of the old shower stall, and to stripe the curtain along with the wall. i thought it was a GREAT idea, and it turned out wonderfully. i used the same paint as i used on the wall, and other than being a little stiff, it worked fine.


here is the bathroom striped, but without the shower curtain hanging. the stripes look great, but the dated shower stall & tile kind of distract the eye...

and here it is, all done!



the other side of the bathroom:


...and because i'm sure i'll get some emails about it - the shower curtain was just a standard canvas white shower curtain. we simply held the shower curtain up to the stall/wall, and measured where the stripes should be on the it (when it would be hanging) and then i striped it off with tape the same way i'd tape the wall off. it was very easy, and made such a nice custom look!


  1. LOVE IT! I have my own horizontal stripe project on the go. very exciting :D

  2. What a great idea, very clever!

  3. I love it, it's so visually interesting in a bathroom!


  4. What an ingenious idea! Love it!

  5. The shower absolutely disappears with the striped curtain! Love it! That was a great idea, and the Louis ghost chair is only BARELY there :)

  6. love the way the stripes connect on the wall and shower curtain. that had to have been hard to coordinate. also love the clear chair.

  7. Hi Kristen! I love your work. I really like how the shower curtain stripe blends in with the wall paint!!

    Your blog has inspired a friend of mine to try some furniture painting projects. Will have to let you know how it turns out...

  8. SO soooo cool. I love how clean and fresh and the thickness of stripes and the lucite chair...all of it. Not going to happen in our purple-subway-tiled bathroom. GAH. But maybe a home in the future. Again, LOVE it.
