Vintage Sheet Turned Shower Curtain

blog 004
I’m redecorating my girls bathroom.  It’s been the same since we moved in 4 years ago, and I wanted something a little more girly and sweet.  I’m not quite finished yet, but I did whip up this cool vintage sheet into a shower curtain.
I really love the look of the Shabby Chic shower curtains, but not the price tag.  And if you’ve ever look at and felt them, they almost look and feel like an old bed sheet.  Soft and worn.  So in my mind I thought “I can go to the thrift store find an old sheet and make one!”
And that’s just what I did.

 blog 007 Do you see the blue color on the wall?  That’s the new color, I’ve been a little under the weather the past few days so haven’t been able to finish.  But today I’m feeling better, maybe do a little work in there.  Also painting the cabinets and getting new hardware for them.
Final reveal soon to come :)
Total cost: $3 compared to $29.99 for the Shabby Chic one.

If you have a sewing machine, this is pretty easy to do.  
I lined up the new one with the old one, pinned and cut it the same size.  Then sewed up the rough edges, and sewed some button holes at the top.  I didn't even know I had this feature on my machine but I figured it out and made them then cut them out.  You could also use some grommets.


  1. Your shower curtain made from a vintage sheet is a brilliant idea!

  2. What a great idea. I like it even more that you used a vintage sheet. I really love the detail at the bottom.

  3. I have a set of vintage pillow cases that look just like (or close) to this sheet. Now I am going to find them and compare.

    But your curtain looks great!
