My Mistreatment

Last week The Nester announced she would be holding a Mistreatment Party today.  Perfect timing!  I've been wanting to put up a new curtain in our bathroom but kept putting it off.  This got me motivated, so I went to WalMart (the only store in my town that sells fabric) and bought some of these guys and some fabric. 
When I got home, I pulled a chair into the bathroom and got to work.  I put about 50 holes in the wall because I kept playing with the placement.  But, this is what I ended up with:
Not bad for my first try at mistreating.  Here's a close-up of the fabric:
It's coming through on my computer as a pink color but it's really a reddish color with cream accents.  Now I'm off to check out everyone else's mistreatments!
Happy Birthday Tasha!

Love your new mistreatments. It's frustrating when you want to show a color but for some reason the tint changes when photographed. I love the pattern and it's beautiful no matter if it's pink or red.

BTW, re. recycling. I know it can be hard sometimes. Even little steps can make a big difference. Thanks for your honesty and participating.

Beautiful! The fabric is very pretty and those 50 tack holes don't count if you can't see them. ;-)
