RUFFLES. RUFFLES. RUFFLES.


Don't you love a little ruffle?
Layer upon layer upon layer of dreamy fabric
falling softly towards the floor
bringing shabby softness.
They are romantic.
Vintage & charming

They are not something I would incorporate in every room or space
but a bit of a ruffled on pillows or bedding or on a table is charming.

I have been looking for a ruffled shower curtain
for my vintage toile bathroom...


I found the perfect something that was
soft, white, and layered with ruffle after ruffle...
A drapery panel that is $19.99 at Target.

I have always used drapery panels as my shower curtain because
drapes are longer which allows me to place the curtain up higher
than it would be with a standard shower curtain.


Rod pocket panels slide easily over standard tension rods
and also gives the curtain a 'cleaner' look than using shower hooks.
(I use two tension rods for the shower-
one for the liner and one for the curtain.)


The sweet ruffled panel fits in perfectly with my
vintage inspired bathroom.

  7. Those ruffles are just so dreamy! I can't believe you found them at Target! I have their Shabby Chic shower curtain but it's not nearly as pretty as the panel.

  10. Lovvvvvvvve it!!!! And thanks for the advice on the curtains vs. shower curtains. Getting ready to do over the upstairs bath and that tidbit was invaluable. Custom shower curtains are expensive. I did a little bit of ruffle on the front porch. Come see :) xoxo

  14. Very pretty Courtney! I never would have thought to use drapery panels for a shower curtain, but you can bet I am now. I am SO fussy about them and everything is so plain or masculine looking. Thanks so much!!

  32. That's a great tip, the curtain panel for the shower curtain. How much prettier it will be with the panel reaching the floor.
