There’s not a lot we can do with our circa 1970’s master bathroom aside from a gut renovation.
It has dated terra-cotta colored tiles on the floor. Awful fluorescent light. Brownish textured shower tiles. An off white bathtub. Brass trimmed sliding glass doors. Lovely brown shutters on the window. I told you the place was dated. (Sidenote: I watch HGTV, and I know it could have been worse: metallic wallpaper, pink fixtures, round tub, carpet… I get it. But ours is still no picture of good decor.)
After sewing the kids’ Roman shades, I was on a window treatment high and wanted to add a touch of intrigue and color to our blasé bathroom. Roman shades seemed like overkill so I went with a single (simple) panel and a tension rod. That was Step 1. (I measured the window, cut a piece of fabric to size and hemmed it on all four sides. A set of clip on curtain rings later and done.)
Step 2 is where we make the magic. This is where the shade becomes shazam. Where we put the ‘treat’ in treatment.
Avid reader, I’d like to introduce you to ball fringe. I love my kids and my husband and my dog and Pinterest, but I beyond them, I love ball fringe.
Fabric glue + ball fringe = instantly cooler master bathroom. Not by much, but definitely cooler.
This is just the beginning for the Smith house, I guarantee. There will be much much more ball fringe in our future.
