Ruffles For Me

So craving this entire bathroom right now!  I love the industrial look mixed with very feminine touches.  I’m sure you can all tell from the rest of my home that my style isn’t usually very feminine, but in small amounts I think it can be a great touch.

So, when I found the budget bathroom remodel in the Country Living magazine I was swooning!  Unfortunately, I can’t post pictures from their site here.  So, here’s the link: http://www.countryliving.com/homes/makeovers/budget-bathroom-makeover-0609?click=main_sr .  I particularly fell in love with the ruffled shower curtain from Anthropologie.  But, $98 was quite a bit out of our shower curtain budget.  So, I started searching…

Here is the curtain from Anthropologie:

And here is what else I found:
Ruffles Curtain by Target: http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/179-2733649-8695932?ASIN=B000HPTSE2&AFID=Froogle&LNM=B000HPTSE2|Ruffles_Shower_Curtain&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=B000HPTSE2&ref=tgt_adv_XSG10001

Ruffles Curtain by Target: http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/179-2733649-8695932?ASIN=B000HPTSE2&AFID=Froogle&LNM=B000HPTSE2|Ruffles_Shower_Curtain&ci_src=14110944&ci_sku=B000HPTSE2&ref=tgt_adv_XSG10001

Very close, huh?  And both for under $30!!  I also found this one that I liked (but it was also $96):
In the end I went with Target.  It is on its way, so stay tuned to see how the cheaper version holds up in our newly styled bathroom!
P.S. We also loved a few other things from the Country Living article!  I am going to get the old fashioned looking toilet handle and possible try the corrugated metal as a backsplash to our new shower next year (also stay tuned for those updates! 🙂

    Love your blog…I have to say I died when I saw the article in country living because I had already picked out the exact floor tile and shower curtian for my bathroom along with a similar pedestal sink and I was wondering if they would look good together. Then there’s the article with all my stuff pulled together for me and it looks great. I paired my shower curtian with the shabby chic rhinestone shower curtian hooks, very cute. Also last year I purchased the cross handle for my toilet, it was not by Moen and it did not fit, since reading the article I have hit up 4 Lowe’s and been told they don’t carry the handle by Moen.

    shower curtains that are made from acrylic and polyester are the most durable ones, that is why we always use them *
