No Working on Labor Day!

Well... Maybe just a little...

I decided to make the window/mirror frame match the shower curtain. 

Here's how.

I cut a piece of fabric about 1/4" larger, all around that the frame itself.

Then I painted the frame green to match the walls.

After that I glued the fabric to the front of the frame.
When it was dry, I clipped the fabric at 1/4" intervals all around.  I cut into the corners on the inside of the frames and cut the corners out of the outside corners, so that they wouldn't overlap.

With Tessie's approval, I will now put it under some books until it dries thoroughly.

I had to try it out on the wall.  It fits!  Now all I have to do is wait a while and then put in the glass and the mirror.

After that it will be just a matter of doing the leading for the glass and mirror. 

Not today.  It's Labor Day.  I get the rest of the day off.  Just like everybody else!

See you tomorrow.

What a wonderful idea to do the frame to match the shower curtain. It looks so cute! This will be one extraordinary bathroom once you are finished with it.
