Whales, ships, tentacles, and mermaids! My new shower curtain rules #My favorite things#bathrooms#nautical#shower#tentacles May 3 2013 | Megan Finley Horowitz meggyfin I just got this new shower curtain and I LOOOOOVE it, so I had to share it with y'all. I've had my eye on ModCloth's Swell Acquainted Shower Curtain for months, but it's always been sold out. (For obvious reasons of fucking awesomeness.) But now it's available and even cheaper on Amazon. Had I but known! It's a little more expensive any any other shower curtain I've purchased, but I have my reasons why it was worth it. First of all, look at the cute bag that it comes in: I'm totally re-using the HELL out of this! Now, check out this before and after action: Before: White boringness. After: Ocean-themed excitingness. This is actually part of the view I have from my side of the bed. So when I'm laying there, trying not to get up and go to work for the Empire, I now have an ocean view! Expensive shower curtain TOTALLY worth it! So now, two questions remain: Who wants to be shower curtain twins with me? Quick! Head over here before it sells out again. What do I do with my old white shower curtain? It's perfectly clean… just perfectly dull. Reporter Name * Reporter Email * Original text Enter the original text here. Edited text* Enter your suggested copyedit here.

Use some other, funkier fabric for the front. Or cut it to size/shape and hem it into a table cloth. You could probably get more than one table cloth out of it if they're for end tables/cafe-size tables. Or make it into napkins for fancy dinners. Last resort: painting drop cloth or rags. Reply If you like picnicking or other outside-on-a-blanket activities, consider reusing your shower curtain as a waterproof mat for your picnic blanket. I love lying in the grass in the park in spring time reading a book, but with all the spring showers the grass is often wet. Boom! Shower curtain blanket liner. Reply Plasticland has this shower curtain too! (it back ordered right now) They ALSO have tea towels, messenger bags, and bowling bags in the same pattern! I gots my eyes on them tea towels and that bowlers bag will be mine… http://www.shopplasticland.com/fashion/c/Octopus.html Reply The shower curtain and other stuff in this print are also available on Amazon. Search for Danica Studio Odyssey. Reply OMG OMG OMG! AND it's cheaper on my darling Amazon. Holy balls. I wish I had known what to search for. "Tentacle ocean shower curtain" wasn't doing the trick. Reply OMG I'm screwed. (or rather, My bank account is…) I WANT ALL THE THINGS!!! Reply No, seriously, I'm eyeballing the tea towels and the accent pillow now. Sigh… goodbye money. Hello adorable whales and pirate ships. Reply Megan, How do you think that shower curtain would do converted to a regular curtain? I have a sliding door on my shower, but it would be adorbs in the living room with that accent pillow… Oh wow, I think this could actually make AWESOME living room curtains! The fabric is kind of like linen. The only thing that makes it a shower curtain is the holes at the top, but grab these and you've got living room curtains! Oh man, you have GOT to upload pics to our Flickr pool if you do this. Make me jealous! I love the Odyssey, but I'm kind of digging the Danica Panorama stuff even more… Reply If you click on the seller, Now Designs, they have a ton of super cute stuff. I have their 'I Heart Dishes' floursack towels, and a couple of potholders. I'm waiting to be able to justify further purchases. Reply Totally flipping awesome. Okay, look, this might be shower curtain overkill, but you could split it and do them like a stage curtain, tied back on either side. No pom-pons necessary. Since it's a shower curtain, I bet it would do well like this outdoors, for a patio or something. THOUGHTS. Reply Finally, a shower curtain that can live up to those cool bath towels we got you in BH! xo Reply Actually, I don't like the way the towels look with this curtain. So they are now looking lovely in YOUR apartment. 🙂 Reply OMG WANT WANT WANT!!! Reply I can TOTALLY see you rocking this curtain! Reply Somewhat off topic: are there two shower curtains in the 'before picture? Like, the white one AND a clear plastic one behind it? Is this normal in the US? What a great idea to keep the pretty curtain mould free! Reply Yeah, it's pretty common, especially in regions with lots of humidity — the plastic can also get moldy, but they are really sturdy and stand up to being washed in HOT FUCKING WATER to kill the mold and then dried in the sun. (I hate them, because the plastic kind of sticks to itself when it's damp, and makes a horrible noise when you peel the bits apart, but I'm really aurally sensitive sometimes.) Reply Ah, I was WAITING for someone to ask about that. I could get away with one plastic curtain inside the shower. (I never considered the mold issue actually!) But, since I need the extra storage space, I hang my ironing board on the wall space to the right of the stall shower. That way I cover that ugly hanging board AND make it look like I have a much bigger shower than I actually do. 😉 Reply ….this is getting turned into the curtain over my airshaft window. OMG. YES. Reply Reminds me of the Kraken Rum shower curtain. Only this is prettier. http://www.krakenrumstore.com/products/kraken-shower-curtain Reply My god, the comments on this post are just as interesting as the post it self, now I wonder what I've missed by not reading every single comment on OH&L! … And I've got three new items on my list to buy before moving in July… Yay! Reply Gosh, I love that curtain deeply and emotionally…I was just struck with the desire to decorate our bathroom in a subtle Harry Potter theme, though, so it might have to wait.
