I waffled on buying the Target version and returning the Anthropologie version. I loved the Anthropologies version and it came in the cutest cloth case. I could envision the case as a pillow. I decided to keep the Anthropologie one and I rationalized doing so because I haven’t purchased anything new in a year except for a few business clothes, that I was actually getting two items for the money, if you count the cloth case that was to become a pillow, and that a cotton version would get better with washing.
Now, I didn’t need a shower curtain…I wanted one... as I already have nice glass doors on my shower. I felt the glass made the room seem sterile because of the white walls and other white items. I thought a ruffled shower curtain would soften the look. See before picture below. By the way I already had the shower rod and my friend Kathy gave me the hooks (two more good reasons why I could rationalize the more expensive version).
In case you are interested, the chamber pot in the picture above and below was used by my aunts and uncles (who are now in their 80s) when they were children -- before they had indoor plumbing.

Stop by Between Naps on the Porch and see what others have transformed. I am also tagging onto Southern Hospitality's Today's Thrifty Treasures Every Monday...even though my shower curtain wasn't so thrifty...my shower rod and hooks were. If that is too lame check out the deal I got on two Baekgaard purses.
