Bathroom Makeover: The Curtains and a few Accessories

About this time last year, I was publishing teaser posts about my bathroom makeover.  There was This Post about my trash can's Polka Dots and then I showed you photos of the total mess we were making as well as an interesting surprise.  Did you see my post about The Inspiration?
My bathroom makeover was actually complete last Fall, but I never got around to showing it!  OOPS!  We bloggers show everything, right?  ;-)  Since our bathroom faces the back yard, we love peeking out to see what the animals might be doing.
Here are the  cute little café curtains!
  Using black and white ruffle fabric, a casing was sewn at the top and the bottom was carefully trimmed.  Since ruffle fabric doesn't ravel, there is no need to hem the sides or the bottom.  This window is pretty deep, so I used small tension rods to hold the curtains in place as close to the glass as possible.  The window is right next to the tub.  (See the shower curtain?)  It's a handy spot to stash things for bath time.
Old mason jars were combined with new colorful bottles I purchased from At Home America.  (No, I was not paid for that link, but they have lots of pretty stuff.)  The jars and bottles hold the herbal bath salts, salves and lotions that I make for myself.

I like the vibrant colors against the black and white stripes.  What do you think?  I can't wait to show you other things around the room!
