A new life for an old curtain!

 I did a little decorating with an old curtain we had sitting in the closet . . .
Yes, a little decorating done with a shower curtain!

The Hubs and I got this shower curtain 3 1/2 years ago when we first got married. 
Pretty, neutral, but kinda plain . . .  It was time for it to get a new life!
Its perfect fabric for doing some recovering! 

First I made some "art" if you will for the wall.
 I love these on the wall!  They are big, yet simple and I love the way they turned out!

I started with some squares of wood, some batting and my staple gun!
Its as easy as cover, wrap and staple.

Next I covered the cushion on our cedar chest.  It used to be a flowery blue. . . that didn't match with anything.  With the leftover I made a little throw pillow.  
Its great to be able to re-purpose something that was just sitting on the shelf, and even better to have some great {free} fabric for my projects!
What do you have sitting around that you can give a new life to???
