Makeover Target Style~No-Sew Custom Shower Curtain Trick


Any day spent at Target is a good day, right?  This recent makeover project lead me there.
   Combining the client's previously owned art with off-the-shelf Target merchandise this guest bathroom was transformed.  This project was a fun example of "Home Styling".  Without any major renovations, just merchandise staging, this bathroom was dramatically updated.  




{Before}




The makeover began with a pair of canvas prints that belonged to Lynn, the homeowner.  Using the art as inspiration, the rest of the new design was conceived in one afternoon at Target. 










Lynn wanted a fresh new look without a complete overhaul of the space.  Therefore, we choose a color palette that complimented the existing surfaces (green floors and countertop).  











New paint, fresh towels and colorful accessories gave the room a cheerful new look. 










We used two wall colors, soft buttery yellow "Shortbread" and spicy, warm orange, "October Leaf" both by Martha Stewart. 









The art tied the new color palette and green surfaces (floors and countertop) together.  It was also the element that personalized the space keeping it from looking like it was completely designed at Target. 


































Semi-Custom Shower Curtain Trick

To give the shower a sophisticated, custom look without any sewing,  I used a decorative tension rod and a pair of these...










                                              ...84" window drapery panels.







                        {Before}                                                                        {After}



This pair of window drapery panels was taller and fuller than a typical off-the-shelf shower curtain. 

Thank you, Lynn for inviting me into your home.

  1. We are getting Target stores here in Toronto very soon and I am so excited! I'm always envious when I see such amazing home decor pieces that I can't get!

    I love the colour palette. I would never have thought of this orange colour for a bathroom, but it looks fantastic! Great to keep in mind for when I start mine!

    1. Hi Carol Jane, Thanks! I used a regular plastic shower curtain liner. It was hung with plastic rings on a separate tension rod, just under the drapery rod. Best, Sarah

  3. I've used drapery panels for shower curtain as well. However, they don't make long enough shower liners. :(

  4. I would love to see the entire bathroom, not just a piece or section here or there. From what I can see, it's beautiful.

    1. Hi Anonymous, thanks for your feedback. It was an unusually sunny Michigan winter day and unfortunately, I couldn't get a full room shot. I feel bad complaining about the sun shining. :) Thanks again, Sarah

  6. I love using regular shower curtains by purchasing 2 sets. It makes the curtains look really full. This is another way to get a different look in the bathroom.

    Can you tell me where you got the flowered art work and the candle holders?
