[D.I.Y. tutorial] Scandi-inspired geometric shower curtain

MbM_DIY_SHOWER-CURTAIN-MAINHey folks! I hope you’re all having a good week so far. It’s back to the grind for me today after a long refreshing weekend away in the rural countryside of Northern Ireland, spending some much-needed time with my parents-in-laws. And boy, have I loads to do but I’m glad for that bit of time away. You cannot beat the peace and quiet nor the fresh air every once in a while as London can get a bit crazy and suffocating at times.

Anyway, I’ve got a super simple DIY this week that will help spruce up your bathroom in 30 minutes! Our shower curtain was due a change and while I like my minimalist all-white look, I thought perhaps this time I’d add a bit of a scandi-monochrome touch to it with a simple geometric motif. And there really isn’t much to this which is great if you’re looking for a quick, budget-friendly makeover!

MbM_DIY_SHOWER-CURTAIN-01What you’ll need:

  1. plain white shower curtain (mine was a Sainsbury’s basics)
  2. permanent markers (sharpie or Pilot)
  3. card (to use as a template)
  4. scalpel, stanley knife or scissors,
  5. ruler

Take your piece of card and cut out a couple of triangles – you can freehand draw/cut these or use a ruler but go for a more abstract version instead of an equilateral one….i.e. you don’t have to have perfect even edges/angles! This cut out will act as your stencil. Now, you can directly draw them onto the shower curtain but I do find that this will help when it comes to filling the triangles out and avoid you going over the lines. It’s your call!

Once that’s done, spread out your shower curtain over a large working surface – whether it’s your dining table or on your floor. And then place your stencil onto the plastic sheet and draw away using your permanent marker. I would start from one side to another or bottom up. Again, do what’s comfortable to you.

And voila!

It really is insanely simple! And you don’t have to go for triangles like me. You can totally go for other Scandic-Inspired motifs or do some amazing colour-blocking too using spray paint! For that, all you got to do is just tape up the areas you don’t want the paint to cover and do it in sections. You could have a bold yellow and pink strip running across the bottom. Or perhaps be brave and write some inspirational quotes with the permanent markers….the options are endless! :)MbM_DIY_SHOWER-CURTAIN-08So folks, let me know if you give it a go or if there’s any other cool shower curtain ideas you’ve done yourself before or seen on Pinterest etc. I do hope you’ve liked this one, particularly for its simplicity!

Enjoy the rest of your week and I’ll be back with more creative antics. xx
