Progress: shower curtain

Nothing was marked off the slated to-do list because we were out of town this weekend, but we did manage to assemble a custom shower curtain in 15 minutes. We've had the same white, Martha Stewart shower curtain for years, and I was bored. It's done the job well, but it's time to move on. Goodbye waffle knit curtain! Hello soft, lovely peshtemals!

First, I ordered two peshtemals from Turkish Bath that were longer than 72 inches (the average length of a shower curtain).
By the way, Cem from Turkish Bath was awesome and shipped everything quickly.

Once the two towels were stitched together, I placed the trusty Martha Stewart shower curtain underneath the peshtemals as a guide to measure and mark the space between grommets.
Fluorescent lighting = creepy hands

Next, the fluorescent lights attacked Jon's hand again! Ack! We used a standard grommet kit. The cylindrical tool to the left of Jon's hand is used to punch a hole through the fabric. Then a grommet is attached and a washer is hammered down tight using the tool in Jon's hand.

Voila! Grommets are affixed.

The curtain is hung.

The bathroom gets a customized upgrade.

Duke approves.
