Parade of Inexpensive Shower Curtains

What is the show piece in the bathroom?  The shower curtain, of course!  If you are thinking of redecorating your bathroom, start with picking out your shower curtain & then you can pick out the paint, towels,art etc. based off of that.  I found a million beautiful shower curtains...some were a little pricey starting at $80 or more.  The great thing is you don't have to spend that kind of money though to get a fabulous look!  I have rounded up 20 inexpensive shower curtains in the most popular prints right now.  The greatest part is that they are all under $40!!!

Well, all you need are THREE items to create a beautifully styled coffee table.   I am keeping it BASIC here...take a look!


So my drawings may not be the best, but you get the point right??

1----A Floral/Branch Arrangement.  This element gives you height. Pick a container for your arrangement that has curves to offset the square & straight lines of  the books (mentioned below).  A hurricane with a large candle inside, or 3 candlesticks could also work, but personally I prefer something organic.
