Our house was built in 1911- yup it will be 100 next year- and it has a lot of great old features: built ins, original floor, baseboards, and of course a clawfoot tub. Josh loved this feature, I don't really know much about it at all, but I figured it was asthetically pleasing and didn't really think much of it.
The first night in our house after the LONG day of moving I jumped into the shower for a nice relaxing warm wind down from the day. Little did I know, I would be sucked into a vortex of shower curtains surrounding me. For some reason, when the water comes on the curtains just suck in and stick to you. Very annoying and not pleasing for me a girl who loves her showers!
So I have looked up solutions and well, there really aren't any. The only thing I can find is to add extra magnets to the bottom of the curtain. So I am going to add the extra magnets on the bottom and try it out....otherwise it'll be a many longggg years of sticking to the curtain! Anyone have ideas or know of anyone that has a clawfoot tub to get advice...sign..

But as I said 50 bucks a panel times 6 panels, not in this girl's budget. So I decided to shop around some more and found these awesome sheer white gromat topped for the dining room.
I found some awesome ones from JC Penny for $20 dollars a panel! Woop, totally doable. JC Penny's actually has some really great curtains for cheap, I was very excited. They offer to order them online, they have extra long length which is what we need for 84 and 95 inch windows.
I got white for the dining room, white for the office and brown for the guest bedroom- since the house is so open I wanted to keep things similar and consistant throughout the entire place.
I was so proud of my purchases and ready to move in...we walked in and poof. They left the curtains!! HA all of my hard work for nothing! I ended up taking the 6 white panels for the dining room back and keeping the linen ones they originally had (they had full linen set from Pottery Barn) a smidge nicer then my JC Penny's purchase! I switched out the curtains in the den and the guest room. Welp, that's what I get for being proactive ;)
