I wanted to show a quick update I did to the full bathroom. I knew that a window treatment was needed, so I have been browsing fabrics for something that would fit in the bathroom nicely. You can see my bathroom post here for a recap.
Since I have no sewing skills whatsoever, I also knew I'd be breaking out the Stitch Witchery to hem this one up. I decided to do just a straight valance - simple and easy.
Here is the before photo. Yikes. New blinds will be coming at some point, but for now the valance will somewhat camouflage
And the brackets had already been hung before I realized I didn't have a before/ugly shot.
Here's the window now...
I was really second guessing my fabric choice at first, but it's grown on me a lot. The fabric is Waverly Fishbowl in Caviar which I got from Fabric.com.
Initially I thought it was competing too much with the shelf, but I'm happy with it (anything is better than ugly broken blinds). I wanted something that had a little yellow in it to compliment the shelf, but also something to neutralize the space which I think the black helps with nicely. I was also a bit hesitant that the large scale print on the fabric would be too much (since this is a really small full bathroom), but it's working for now.
What are your thoughts on the fabric choice? It is bold which I know is not for everyone. Have you ever had a small bathroom such as this one? If so, how did you make it work and maximize its potential?
