Does your bathroom feel kind of meh? Is it not really inspiring you? I have to say – I know how you feel. After finishing a renovation on 95% of our main floor – our bathroom (which remained untouched) just doesn’t feel or look the same. It’s blahhhhhh. I’m on a mission to spruce up this bathroom (on a budget) and help it feel more cohesive with the rest of the house. Starting with this super simple (and I mean super simple) shower curtain idea.

Let me show you what I did in ten minutes to add a bit more character and pizzazz to our bathroom.
Here’s the great Shower Curtain Idea …
Take your existing curtain and add some tassel trim! That’s it!
Tada! You simply pin it on there and then sew it right up. You can either add this to the front, like I did, or to the back so you don’t see the trim part. But I kind of liked it on the front.
I have this thing for tassels and pom poms – I’m always sewing them to things around the house. LOL.
This is such a quick project but it really adds so much. And the best part is you can do this without having to take the curtain off the rod. Seriously.
Extra Long Shower Curtain
Our shower curtain is extra long – it measures 72 inches by 96 inches. I bought it from Amazon because our rod is hung really high. So if you like your shower curtains to pool at the floor a bit or if you have a really high rod too – this one works perfect!
I also love that it draws your eye up and makes the ceilings feel taller. I shortened my curtain a bit so the tassels wouldn’t be on the floor – just above it.
It looks great in my opinion!
How to keep your Shower Curtain from Falling Down
If you are wondering why we have our curtain rod up so high …
THIS IS WHY …
Because after the 860th time that our curtain rod fell off the wall – I pretty much lost it and threw it in the trash. And believe me – I had tried it all to keep it up there. Nothing worked. And the worst sound is your curtain rod coming down after you tore ligaments in your shoulder trying to get it up there.
And then I had a lightbulb moment. I knew the only way this thing was going to stay was if I drilled it into the wall. Unfortunately, we have tile all the way up and down the wall, so that only left the ceiling for me to work with. And luckily – trusty Amazon sells this curtain rod and brackets (which you hang from the ceiling), and I never ever have to worry about our shower curtain falling down again.
And they lived happily ever after.
The END. 🙂
You can see more about that in this video. This video was made before I had the longer curtain. And also this was my very first video ever so no judging 🙂
More Tassel Ideas for You!
I tend to pick up a lot of inspiration just browsing around my favorite home decor stores. Here is a tassel shower curtain I found from Serena and Lily. It’s beautiful, right? It’s also almost $80! You could easily find blue tassels and sew them to your existing curtain the way I did above.
Target also has a really cute tassel curtain through their Opalhouse line. This one has a macrame type weaving through the middle and it looks more beige than white. It’s a great price though!
Do you have a good shower curtain idea? I’d love to hear all about it in the comments!
