Interior Design | DIY | Sexy Bathtub Curtain



welcome back to broken design I'm Rebecca Robeson and today I'm filming from my bathroom why well last week I uploaded a video if you haven't seen it don't see it knock you watch this one on 10 clever things that I did to my bathroom on a budget I didn't change my fixtures in my boxes from my countertops in my cabinet but I did do a lot of other things that made a huge difference in here and I promised you in that video I was going to show you exactly how I made my custom tub shower curtain when we first bought this house this bathroom was a little bit of a disaster but I did like a few aspects that one of it was there's a skylight right over the middle of the tub which is great it's a Roman tub which means it fits up above the floor the steps kind of lead up to it makes it feel a little bit like a sunken tub and it has this feeling to tub dish complete and total mirror and I thought that was really nice too so I looked at it I thought you know I need to make this something really special something romantic something kind of dramatic so one of the things I did was add sconces to the walls and then I decided I need to make a custom tub curve so I'm going to show you today exactly how are you this is all exciting oh my gosh and I'm here to watch it oh all right I can't believe it nine years of hard work and consistency and a whole heck of a lot of fun made this happen we did it right now I'm going to take you back 15 years ago as if I was making this for the first time here's what I did I went to my local fabric store and I purchased six yards of fabric and I liked this fabric because look at it it has this Sheen to it that is so kind of shimmery and sparkly and it's also kind of see-through so what I did was I took the six yards and I cut it in half you can see here whoops I can't even see here I remember glasses on I turned the top of the fabric over and I created a pocket that was three inches which would allow me to put a one and a half or two inch wide inside of it and on the top another additional inch which gives it kind of a fancy little fringe edge when you gather it I measured in advance to make sure I knew how high I wanted this curtain I came up with eight foot six so with two panels now out of that six yards of fabric I had two three yard panels I used that top six inches and the bottom so taking my raw edge I took it and I folded it under once and folded it a second time and then I top stitched along that line and this is what I came with up with was an edge a hem like this now at this point it's time that I go ahead and press this so that it has a beautiful flow to it when it hangs because this fabric is synthetic I turned it over and I'm going to iron it from the backside my mom taught me that if you sew on the back side instead of the front side you're less likely to get that shine although kind of like the fact that this fabric has shot ah how many of you still iron anymore kind of outdated so many of our clothes don't need to be ironed or we send the to the cleaners I got to admit I don't bring my iron out that often anymore but I love something that's freshly pressed how many of you pressed your pillowcases if you do leave me a comment I want to know fresh pressed pillowcases are a luxury it's what we do for our clients at their reveals we wash their sheets and we press their pillowcases is that helping yes [Applause] a lot of you probably have just a standard 8 foot tall ceiling and you've got short shower curtains don't you I know because I've seen them they're everywhere and I am a huge proponent of making those shower curtains go all the way to the ceiling so if you want to see a video on how to take a standard shower curtain that you buy at the store there is a video on my channel with one of the very early early videos that I did of Sharra's dorm room where we bought two shower curtains and we sewed them together to make one long tall shower curtain it's a really great video it's old content is very old but the content itself and what I teach you is extremely relevant so I will link in the description box below the video that video you can go watch it yes I was much younger and I had different hair alright so panel number one is going to go up and I want to show you I cut a little slit about six inches in and there's a reason for that I had mounted to the ceiling a double bar and typically these go on the wall but I got ceiling mounts because I wanted to go up as high as possible I'm going to do this a heel I always climb ladders and heels don't you this is a retractable rod like a telescoping rod so I'm going to put the rod in the middle of the pocket that I sewed on here and lead up three inches and I think this rod is only an inch maybe an inch and a half goodness say with the hole and then look how easy this is just to literally gather right on top of the rod as you see how I have that little piece left here that's because I'm going to put the rod in this little mounting bracket and on this side I'm going to put the rest of this on I let that little slit there so that I could have some fabric on this side as well and that allows it to go all the way to the wall now you're going to notice here that there is an additional rod and what are these for that is what adds so now for the second panel bring this up when I originally made these my thought was that I would have one panel on either side hanging down so at this point I could leave it like this and have a curtain on either side but I was thinking you know I wanted something more romantic more dramatic more black named smokey I decided to hang these crystals and mirrors on my curtain to make it extra sparkly but only on one side now you might want to be in the tub so this is going to take a couple pair of pliers because at the top of the string I added a wire split ring and that's one how pretty is that and see the reason I wanted to do this play on this top rod is it gives me the flexibility to put it wherever I want these are from west down huh so I'm going to randomly move these about every other one will be a crystal in the mirror in the crystal watch this one instead of it being on the front I'm going to take it over the back essentially what I do is all the mirrors every other one will be on the backside look at that inside a beat tub expel you're going to be able to see this like beautiful shimmer coming through the curtains so here's how I flag guys ready this is this is design goals I take my hand here and I cut it and I go like this and then I let the fabric drop into my hand and I'm going to pull this over flag right here over the top I'm going to pull this through on the other side and then I'm going to grab it and pull it through that top rod only see that so now you can see why this top edge didn't really need to be finished on the end you can if you want to it certainly doesn't hurt too I must have 15 years ago to spintires oh maybe I ran out of thread or maybe one of my kids were sick I don't know but I didn't do it give me a comment you guys let me know if you like this video these were helpful hints for you go watch the video on how to make a long shower curtain out of standard shower curtains that you can buy anywhere the link is in the internet box below remember we have another design session coming up it's going to be amazing

    Of course…. fresh pressed pillow cases, not to iron your bed linen is so wrong. It looks like you have slept in it for days if you don’t. The look and the feel of nice clean bed that smells really fresh, beautiful and you get a better nights sleep ? .
