coral: curtain & towels

I liked my powder bathroom here
I wanted to spruced it up a little.
guess what?
C O R A L 

Well, the first thing that needed to be updated was the curtain. 
The sun bleached it and it wasn't a pretty blue anymore, but turned in some kind of indigo-ish/lavender with some lighter and darker areas.

I draw a border with coral branches in a in the same style of these other towels.

... got a white plain curtain,
... draw the border with a water soluble marker on the top of the curtain, 
... repeated the design three times,  
... painted in a bright red (used Deka Permanent fabric paint)
... let dry for a day, 
... press to fix the color, 
... and rinsed out to erase the marker.

The bathroom looks so much brighter with the white curtain!
Love it!

... so much that I decided to paint a couple of borders on plain white cotton fabric to be sewn onto two plain terry cloth towels.

Yes, I'm a matchy-matchy kinda person :)

...there's more coral in this bathroom coming up !

xox, d.
