31 DAYS: DAY 21, THE WHITE CURTAINS MAKE ME SMILE

The one and only area that I have stayed absolutely true to my original vision of everything white is in the curtains.  I just adore white lace and white ruffles and white trims.  I collect white bed skirts, curtains, ladies skirts, etc. to be repurposed into all sorts of things.
 
For our shower curtain, I added ruffles to a store-bought white fabric shower liner curtain.  The ruffle with the crocheted trim was from a bed skirt that I bought at Goodwill for a couple of dollars.  The one with the little balls on used to be on my bed until our darling puppy chewed up one side.

The little curtain in the bathroom window was made from Laura Ashley curtains that I also picked up at Goodwill.

Instead of doors, the two bedrooms have curtains made from old tablecloths.

So there you have it.

Yes, those white curtains would certainly put a smile on my face. I collect white items, too; for my all-white house that I keep thinking will happen. Hmm?

I like those ideas. I usually turn the bed skirts and such into petticoats.
