DIY: A Simple Curtain

With the new house going up next door, our days of basking in unadulterated natural light and unhindered views of trees are now gone! 

Our shower and our bedroom used to face an empty forest. Now they face a two-story house! 

I got tired of shlepping my bathroom stuff into the boys' shower, so I eventually broke down and made a little privacy curtain. I am finally at a place where I can admit to myself that I don't like sewing. I love the idea of being able to make things for myself that meet my needs exactly, but I do not enjoy the process. Luckily this one was pretty quick! 

These grommets are miracle workers. Seriously. You just cut a circle out of the fabric and snap these bad boyz together. Voila! 

I purposely went with a white fabric to continue to let in as much light as possible. 

It feels strange to finally recognize that sewing is not a hobby of mine. I've honestly enjoyed the end results so many times that I got confused. It's liberating to understand that I should do it if I really, really need something, but I should consider it work and not a hobby. I think the book I'm reading right now (Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less) is helping me be more discerning!
