A Dropcloth Shower curtain with Ruffles

I finished the shower curtain in my bathroom, which is now usable by the way and we are so excited. But, as usual, I have lots of little details to finish it. I used a $10 drop cloth from Home Depot for the shower and added some white ruffle trim from Hobby Lobby to make the shower curtain. The curtain cost me about $20 including the grommets. The only thing I would have done differently is make it wider. I only added a few inches extra and I should have done at least 6 inches. Oh well, I am still learning!
I just adore this ruffle trim and I love mixing unexpected styles together like an industrial looking drop cloth and soft feminine ruffles. I just sewed the ruffles onto the curtain after I measured and drew a line to pin the trim to so it would be straight.

Here is what the trim looks like. It is 1.99/yard at Hobby Lobby. Less with a coupon or when it's on sale!

I used these vintage style glass shower curtain hooks from Target's Shabby Chic collection. I added grommets to hang the curtain. Once again, I love the industrial looking grommets and the feminine sparkly glass knobs. It didn't turn out perfect, but I love how it looks in the bathroom.

Great job. I really love dropcloth as an inexpensive fabric. It works pretty well for upholstery, too.
