Well, since my boys are older I have decided to change the decor of my bathroom from the tropical fish theme we've had for 7 years. My plan is to design each room of my house around a different country - my living room is Ireland, my kitchen Italy, my bedroom is Asian (couldn't decide on one particular country there), my master bath is going to be Parisian themed, I'm letting the kids do their own rooms how they want, and I thought the bathroom could be British ships.... like from the 1700's or so. About a couple weeks back we painted the bathroom a blue-ish gray and then I ragged it with a slate blue glaze. It turned out really nice! I looked at shower curtains and hated all of them so I'm making my own. I bought some crushed voile in white (made me think of a sail) and I'm going to add a tatted edging. Barb from Handy Hands said I could mail her a paint sample and she could work on finding a matching tatting thread. I'm getting excited. This project will take a little while since I have to sew the curtain too but it will be fun! I have an old shower curtain to use as a pattern. I'm thinking of using an edging that has a wave to it....like water. I think I'll tat some motifs and frame them in small square frames - maybe 3 of them to go over the bathtub. I'm taking watercolor painting classes so I'm planning on painting a few pictures to go with the theme too. I'm just giddy with excitement! I hope it turns out as nice as I've invisioned!
