After photographing our hall bathroom, two things became very apparent: 1) The glass shelf above the toilet looked too high;
…and 2) the floor-to-ceiling shower curtain was about six inches too long.
I avoided remedying the shelf problem right away because rehanging the shelf meant patching and painting holes in the wall. But I sucked it up like a big girl and got it done. (Drop it like it’s hot)
The shelf and frame line up much better with the mirror. I spread the mounting hardware a little wider this time around, but that’s hardly noticeable. Left is before, right is after. Subtle, but it makes a difference.
On to the shower curtain problem. Since the shower curtain rod is as high as possible, I figured hemming the shower curtain would be the
best only fix. (Raise the roof)
I maaaaaay have had to relearn how to use my sewing machine because, good grief, it’s been a while. But once I remembered how to thread the bobbin, it took me no time to stitch the hem. I rinsed (lathered) and repeated the process on the liner.
Much better. I dig the curtain pooling on the floor look, but in a bathroom, it just seemed a little gross. Plus, a pooling liner seems like it’d mildew much faster.
See how much more polished the curtain looks?
Total project time was less than an hour.
Have you ever finished a project, then stepped back, and realized you made a glaring error? I only realized my shelf error after viewing the photos on my computer!
