Tip: Shower Curtain Decor

We received this tip from AT reader, Jessica, on how to spruce up a standard clear shower curtain liner. The outcome is dazzling. Thanks, Jessica!

I've had a poster up in my hallway for a few years. It is of a geometric shape that my mathematician father made me. I came up with the idea of transferring it to a clear shower curtain liner by tracing it with a sharpie. I took the poster and taped it to the liner, flipped it over and then went to work with the sharpie. After about 45 minutes of tracing it was done...

It is an easy way to make a custom shower curtain without much
effort. It took me less than an hour from start to finsih despite
the complexity of the image. If you don't have a large image to
trace, it can be done with an overhead or slide projector. Sharpies,
which are waterproof, come in lots of colours now, so you have some
flexibility concerning the design.

Shower curtain liners are inexpensive, so this is the kind of thing
you could change a couple of times a year. I'd love to see someone
use Matisse line drawings, do their own freehand drawings, draw one of those trees that everyone seems quite taken with these days, or just set the kids free with sharpies.
