Turn Beach Towels Into a Shower Curtain
What you need: Two beach towels and 14 clip-on drapery rings from Umbra. Note: Made of nickel-plate rather than stainless steel, the clips
will eventually rust in a bathroom, but they're inexpensive ($8 for seven, umbra.com) and a lot easier than attaching grommets for standard rings.
What you do:
1. Along one short end of each towel, clip on the drapery rings about five inches apart.
2. Remove the curtain rod and slip it through the rings, then reinstall it. More decorative than functional, the towels should stay outside the tub. You'll need a plastic or nylon liner to keep your bathroom out of hot water when you shower.
Also works with: Sheets and tablecloths.
