The $21 Bathroom Redo

A special visitor is coming tomorrow.  Just the motivation I needed to redo the half-bathroom in my quilting space!   

Here are the "before" photos. 








I didn't want to get out the paint brushes and look for new wallpaper.  Who wants to take that much time away from playing with fabric?  Ah, FABRIC!  Why not?  I measured the upper wall and found I'd need 8 yards.  Hmm, what do I have 8 yards of?  Wa-la!






I stapled it to the walls, and then glued on ribbon to hide the staples.



I busted out the old plastic in these doors and used spring rods to install curtains.



It took me about a day and a half.  And the $21?  That was for the ribbon.
