Repurposing Vintage Linens – Part 1

shower curtain I love repurposing things, especially vintage linens. I have found some really cute ones at thrift stores and I have several from my grandparents and great grandparents. Recently I was tired of looking at the shower curtain in our master bathroom, so I decided to repurpose a vintage sheet that I had picked up and turn it into a shower curtain that would make me smile. In order to turn it from a sheet into a shower curtain, all I did was measure for the proper length and then cut it off and hem it. Next, I added buttonholes to be able to hook it onto the shower curtain hooks. All in all it took me about a half an hour to make, and what a difference it made in the bathroom. I just love this print, it is so bright and cheery, and $2 for the sheet and a half an hour of time is my idea of a makeover.

    Oh, I haven’t seen that pattern on a vintage sheet! I have such a “thing” for vintage linens. They’re so happy! Great idea for the shower curtain! I think it looks really great and really pretty!

    Hello, found you from the lovely email you sent me!

    Love that vintage sheet. I’m sure your thrift stores offer much better pickings than ones in the UK, I never seem to find such wonderful things (or maybe it’s just me?!).
