Anthropologie Inspired Bedspread using a shower curtain!
VERY, VERY long time!
When I was giving my girls a bath I was looking at the
shower curtain and I realized that it would
be perfect for Millie’s bedspread!
Then, I had a GREAT idea!
I can sew the shower curtain onto a down comforter.
So that is just what I did!
It took about an hour or so total and only cost me $40!
Here is what I did…
First, I started with this comforter from Ikea which is $19.99.
And this shower curtain, which is $19.99!
If you notice the shower curtain is 100% polyester, which means that it is very soft. Perfect for a bedspread!
The shower curtain is shorter then the twin size comforter but I knew I would be adding big pillows on her bed so the top of the comforter did not need the ruffles.
I lined one side of the curtain to the edge of the comforter and starting pinning, once that side was pinned I pinned the bottom.
Then, I wrapped the extra part of the curtain
under the other side of the comforter.
So it looked like this!
I sewed all four edges, then I cut the extra bit of curtain that was left over.
It turned out so much better then I thought it would!
Although, today I realized that it is very hard to take a great picture of a bedspread. Being in a little room did not help, but you get the idea!
I am beyond excited how great it looks!
What do you think? Is this great or what?!
Can you imagine the possibilities!!!
its so cute!! I love it.
Um, awesome. I really like this!
Oh my goodness, that is perfect! Now I kind of want to be on the lookout for cute shower curtains!
This looks AMAZING! It is so pretty- I would love it for my room! I am going to keep an eye on shower curtains from now on. I’ve got a plain white down comforter that could use some ruffles!!
I love this idea! Beautiful! Thanks for sharing!
I hope that you will stop by tomorrow for Functional Friday and link up your project!
I love this idea. Thanks for sharing…very inspiring! Love your blog!
Wow, creativity galore…I love it!!!
I would sleep in that bedroom in a second
Have a lovely evening
Genius! Thanks for sharing!
That is too, too cute! You are so clever- I would do this on my own bed if only they made shower curtains bigger!!!

Super cute!! Can I do this for my room?? haha
You could also sew the shower curtain onto a comforter cover….that way you can wash it or change it! and it also keeps the comforter cleaner. I also find that some down comforters aren’t always a true white. There is a yellow tinge from the feathers that I don’t like. So sewing it to a white cover would fix that. I wonder what it would look like on a coloured covered?! hmm 🙂
Very pretty, love this idea!
What a neat project and it looks great! You really scored on that ruffled shower curtain. I’d have to make the ruffles then sew them on. Love the way this looks!
What a beautiful idea!!
Stop it! That is SUPER cute! I love the “shabby-chicness” of it. Thanks for the invite to your linky party! My sister just linked up her “cross my heart” nails! We are your newest followers : )
I wish I was a little girl again and could have this for my room. Wouldn’t quite be a hit with my husband for our room now.
This looks great! Super flowy and feminine. I’ve definitrly squirreled the idea away for when my little one moves into a big girl bed!
Beautiful job on the comforter! Would love for you to link up to the Tuesday To Do Party if you haven’t already! http://blackberryvine.blogspot.com/2012/02/tuesday-to-do-party-50-and-49-list.html
This is beautiful! And so easy to follow – its just perfectly girly, I love it!

Hanging out with my friends is something that I can live without but rendering my time in serious moments in reading blogs about curtain cleaning is precious time for me.
