We have a new addition in the front hallway, in the form of this lovely new cabinet... except that it's not exactly new, as it's made from pieces of old doors. It was a custom made order (by Rick in Surrey); I wouldn't have normally thought of custom made furniture as being feasible, but it wasn't pricier than buying a new piece of furniture, and I like that it's locally made out of salvaged material, with no shipping, no packaging, and no middle men involved. Plus it has lots of character. (I heart anything with crystal knobs on it, and the curvy feet are a nice touch too.)
It's been a few years since I've blogged. But I'm back now, as apparently I have things to say, things to talk about, and things to share: things like... shower curtains. (Yes, I can already anticipate a lack of readers!).
While I hadn't given any thought to shower curtains until about 2 weeks ago, I've since realized that I have opinions about them, such as vinyl curtains being cheap and cheerful and for twenty-somethings. And also that Anthropologie and Restoration Hardware have nice shower curtains and other stores do not. One of the commenters on the Anthro website writes:
"At first, I was hesitant about spending $100 on a shower curtain. My husband thought it was nuts. BUT now that it's hanging up, even my hubby agrees that it's awesome". I agree too!
The shower curtain of my dreams - words that I never thought I'd say.
I hope you'll stay tuned for my next post... on toilet brushes!
