New Bathroom Curtains


So, a couple of years ago, I started crocheting this panel to go in our bathroom window. I've never figured out why they would put an eye-level bathroom window in a house without some type of privacy glass and I realize we could just close the blinds but I don't like keeping the blinds down, it makes it too dark.

Anyway, since I'm 'retired' now, I have been finishing up some craft projects. I used cotton crochet thread that I already had on hand and this used up all of it. I knew I wanted a valance for the top but felt that it needed a little something more; especially since my crocheted panel isn't quite wide enough to go all the way across! (blush)

I thought the addition of the side curtains looked rather nice and hid my oops. We both really like the way the curtains have changed the whole feel of the bathroom. :)

Linking up with Farmgirl Friday.

that is neat, but i bet with the light on at night, they still don't give too much privacy! :)

Very nice. I've thought about making some for my kitchen, for summer time.

Very nice for the day time. I'd be hunting a blind or shade for the night! Your crochet panels are pretty- I;ll bet that was a lot of work!

Cute and I like the side panels. I've seen homes with huge windows over the tub. My husband had to reconfigure the window in our toilet area after we discovered the framing left a full body sided window right next to the toilet - head to toe almost! LOL, it's much smaller now.

Very attractive! Doesn't it feel good to finish up some of the UFOs that have been lying around too long? I like your colors . . . soft, warm and restful.

Your curtains look really nice. The crocheted panel is a great idea! You're right...eye - level bathrooms are challenging! :)

Cute, and much nicer than the frosty contact stuff you can buy...

That is so cute and cozy! Very nice. I'd never guess there was an oops.

What a clever idea! My bathroom window looks out into the poultry yard. I like the fact that you get privacy/coverage but it's still light.

It looks so cozy and nice! Great job :)

Marie said...

They turned out just great! I was so glad you gave me the idea to crochet the curtains for my sewing room. We'll see how many years that takes me, though! :-)

What a great idea! I've never been able to learn to crochet, I've tried learning from books and youtube videos, but it's no use! (Not that I will stop trying!) ;) Your curtain is wonderful, if you were my neighbor I would be at your door with my crochet hook begging for a crochet lesson! I'm thinking maybe I could accomplish something similar with a very loose knit though...and I'll pin this just in case I ever do catch on to crochet!

I like the pictures of your animals. They look quite happy and that means they are loving the good life ;-)
Interesting curtain design for your bathroom. I am always looking for ways to keep the eyes of nosy neighbours out of my private space while allowing myself and my family to enjoy the beauty outdoors. You have good ideas.
