Not bad, right?
Anyway, here's how it played out in my world.
I started with an inexpensive pair of 96" curtains from Target, that I originally purchased for our guest bedroom window.
Fortunately due to the window in our guest bedroom requiring short curtains, I was able to cut 30" off the bottom. The perfect amount needed for my 29" high sink!
After ironing, I got out my trusty stitch witchery and gave them a 1" hem.
This is where it starts getting interesting. I knew I wanted some sort of gathering or pleating, but seeing as I don't sew, I really didn't know where to go from here. After a bit of time spent researching, I discovered iron on shirring tape. I found mine here.
Are you familiar with shirring tape? I wasn't. But just like stitch witchery, it can be ironed into place. The top and the bottom are corded; simply pull the cords and scrunch up the fabric.
It was so easy and took all the sewing work out of making pleats!
Voila, pleated skirt - no sewing necessary!
Next, it was just a matter of attaching sticky backed Velcro to the skirt.
And then attach it to the sink itself!
I used two panels to allow for a split down the middle for easy storage access.
I am so happy with the outcome of this little project. It really smartens up the look of the bathroom and provides that extra bit of storage that we really needed.
Now, I just need the rest of the bathroom to transform itself!
Think that can happen?
Until next time,
