Shower Curtain Hacks
Do you have an old shower curtain and don't know what to do with it? Here area few ideas I have come up with and wanted to share with all of you.
Covering a doorway without a door -
I have a bathroom in my home that sits right next to my bed and it has never had a door. I wanted to build some privacy that I could do myself that would be easy and inexpensive. I did this with just a tension rod and a shower curtain.
Slide the shower curtain onto your tension rod. (This shower curtain has built in shower curtain loops to hang from.)
I measured the tension rod to fit my doorway. I extended it just past the doorway for a tight fit, and I slid the tension rod into my door way. Here is what it looks like with the curtain closed.
Window Curtain -
You can use a shower curtain as a window curtain or in our case to cover these french doors that are in our home.
I hung 2 Command Hooks up on each door.
Another option would be to place the 3 Command Hooks above the door. One on either end and one in the center.
Using 2 tension rods, I placed 1 curtain on each of them.
If you were doing the above the door option you could buy a curtain rod instead.
I placed the tension rods onto the hooks and we had curtains.
Table Cloth -
Use it as a table cloth, paint drop cloth, or splat mat under a high chair.
Place Mats -
For my place mats, I used another place mat I had on hand to measure out and cut 4 rectangles of fabric.
I hot glued the edges and folded underneath to create a seam so the place mats wouldn't fray.
I set them on my table and the great thing is that they're waterproof.
Wall Art/Message Board -
Using the insert of my 11 x 14" frame that I bought, I placed it on my shower curtain and cut around it.
I placed the shower curtain section in my frame.
I hung it up as wall art and it doubles as a message board. Just use a dry erase marker and wipe it off when done.
