Working on the bucket list

I've jumped all over my bucket list. Nothing like taking one step after another. After the flower  garden quit, I moved onto my shower curtain. I've been replacing a lot of things so when I'm gone my son won't be surrounded with pastel flowers and worn out appliances and bedding. I talked him into a new mattress and then we moved onto colors. Since he is working with the military and is waiting for a home on the base, he picked red, white and blue. The first thing was installing a 9 foot flag in the living room and photo's of him, his grandfather and brothers. I can't take photo's of that area right now since it's being washed, painted and of course the train platform is taking up the center and needs to be worked on.

I went to the bath room to start. First I replaced the towels, hand towels and wash cloth's in shades of blue and tan and red. I also replaced the bath mats and a new rubber maid mat for the tub. Now it was onto the shower curtain. I wanted to keep with the colors but wasn't feeling stars flying all over. I found one on Amazon that looked good. It had embroidered flowers on one section and was fancy shiny fabric. Only one problem, the bottom section was not blue. Instead it was dark brown.

I ordered it anyway. Got my son to take me for a trip to Joann fabric and picked up a yard of blue fabric. It didn't take but a little over an hour to have the right color scheme. Now all that is left is finding a soap dish and brush holder.

                                                                                                                                                                     A little too much light in the room. The new blue is not so bright and the red is more a cherry red.

Great pictures of your new work. The shower curtain is luxurious. Red, White and Blue, I will have to remember that when I redo the bathroom. Enjoy!

What a great way to change a portion of a ready-made item.
