Step 5: Curtains Up

Hang up your shower curtain.  

You might need to weigh down the bottom to keep it from blowing around on you.  
I clipped mine to plants, and weighed it down with concrete blocks, depending on the step and how frustrated I was with the wind.
<p>Great idea!I plan to modify your idea somewhat since we are going as Walking Dead characters &amp; I'm Carol. My poncho will now be fantastic! Next year, the bathroom will the star of the show. Thanks for sharing</p>
<p>It needs some tears. :D But I'm going to do one. :D</p>
<p><strong>LOVE</strong> IT! if an over-night guest decides to set-up household &amp; sponge off of you indefinitely, put it up while s/he is sleeping. the most fun will be had if the guest gets up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom. you'll have the house to yourself by the next morning, &amp; the freeloader won't be back. <strong>x^)</strong></p>
this is so cool better have some friends sleepin over haahahahahahaahahah
<p>this is awesome!</p>
<p>Wicked cool I love it</p>
so doing this in my new house starting on it tonight!!!
Ha ha, I should do this one and invite a Police friend over. <br>Make sure he;s off duty not armed hahahaha !
or you could just color your hair...
Congratulations on being a finalist in the Halloween contest!!! Can&rsquo;t wait to see if you win! Good luck!
Love this! Good luck!!!
well, well seem like I'm in the right neighborhood... muhahaha ^,..,^
I think I'll make one of those ... then invite some of my friends to come over and try my new shower :) <br> <br>Oh yes ... I'm an EMT and DO know how to defibrillate someone's heart if needed :) <br> <br>Lynn
make it, then invite the inlaws over, make sure to put a big kitchen knife in the sink or someplace they can see it, but dont make it bloody. then when they ask where their daughter is, do the whole &quot;lying, trying to cover your self&quot; thing.. &quot;Uh, her? oh, yeah, she went out... umm with her new friend from work, yeah so I figured id invite you guys over so I wont eat dinner alone..yeah!&quot; then wait till they use the bathroom....lol
SCRIPT FOR BATHROOM MURDER SCENE: <br> <br>Slow fade in, front door of home opens. In laws walk in, sit down. <br> <br>Homeowner: <br>Glad you could come over for coffee. Have you seen our new kitchen? <br> <br>In Law: <br>Nope. Remodelling or something. <br> <br>Homeowner: <br>Yeah, you could say that. Come let me show you. <br> <br>The two of them walk towards the kitchen past the bathroom. The bathroom door (where the &quot;murder scene&quot; is) is closed, hiding it from view. Upon entering the kitchen, there's food on the stove cooking, a coffee pot .. and a huge butcher knife in the sink with a tiny trace of blood on it. <br> <br>Homeowner: <br>Don't you have a daughter? Where is she? <br> <br>In Law: <br>Not sure. She wandered off earlier. <br> <br>Homeowner: <br>I heard she's been missing a while. I'm going to call the police and file a missing person report I think. <br> <br>In Law: (acting very nervous) <br>Oh ... you don't need to do that. She'll be here shortly. Oh, where's the restroom? <br> <br>Homeowner (walking back towards the closed door): <br>Right here. You're welcome to use it. <br> <br>In Law opens the door to be greeted by flashing red LED shower light, and a realistic looking &quot;murder scene&quot; ... runs out screaming, peeing his pants on the way out the front door. <br> <br>Homeowner: (to audience, Rod Serling style) <br>Well ... he DID ask to use the restroom. I was just getting it prepped for my halloween party. I do hope he finds his daughter soon! <br> <br>Sudden cut to black. <br> <br>Copyright 2012 by Lynn Magnuson, screenwriter <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br>
Next stop ... the Twilight Zone ....
I never thought anyone would write a screenplay based off my bathroom. <br> <br>*tear* I am SO honored. My life is now complete.
Screenplay? its gonna be a hit movie! lol <br><br>Its even going to have the song &quot;Horror Business&quot; By The Misfits as its theme song. I swear, this song was made back in the early 80's, just for your bathroom...lol<br><br>Too much horror business <br>Driving late at night <br>Psycho '78 <br>My bathroom is new <br><br>You, you don't go in the bathroom with me <br><br>Psycho '78 <br>12 o'clock, don't be late <br>All this horror business <br>My mirrors are black <br><br>You don't go in the bathroom with me <br><br>With you <br>I'll put a knife right in you <br>I'm warning you <br>I'll put a knife right in you <br>I'm warning you <br>I'll put a knife right in you <br><br><br>Too much horror business <br>Drivin' late at night <br>Psycho '78 <br>My bathroom is new for you <br><br>You, you don't go in the bathroom with me <br><br>Psycho '78 <br>I'm talking about <br>12 o'clock, don't be late <br>I say, all this horror business <br>My mirrors are black for you <br><br>You, you don't go in the bathroom with me <br><br>With you <br>I'll put a knife right in you <br>I'm warning you <br>I'll put a knife right in you <br>I'm warning you <br>I'll put a knife right in you <br>I'm warning you <br>I'll put a knife right in you <br>I'm warning you <br>You, nobody can do <br>What I can do, no
Any time, dearie ... and oh yes, we have two well maintained restrooms on our set ... you're welcome to use them ANY time ..... :}
Oh Thank you... they do have showers I suppose? <br>lol....
lol... nice. reminds me of Dane Cook talking about his girlfriend playing the &quot;What if game&quot; she's always asking What if questions like,&quot; What if I threw all the food we just cooked out the window?&quot; or while driving down a highway, &quot;what if I grabbed the wheel and made us go off the road at this speed?&quot; So he said he got her back by doing this: They went to a party at her parents house and he says to her, &quot;hey, what if i came out of your moms room covered in blood and said, C'mon, we gotta go, NOW!?' <br>lol....
I just COULDN'T resist! <br>Something like that really needs a script. Now, when I find a director, A.D., Key Grip, etc. and of course actors, we'll be ready for our first real production ... LOL!!! <br>
crew <br>lights <br>cameras <br>scenes <br>craft services <br>Actors <br>Actresses <br>Props <br>Sound <br>Promotions <br>Money....money...and more money!
Wow that is such a good script love it!
Gee ... thank you! <br> <br>I was SOOO inspired by this project I just HAD to write something :) <br> <br>Okay ... think I should film this?? <br> <br>******CREW CALL CREW CALL CREW CALL ******** <br> <br>******CASTING CALL********
Oh yeah, the whole thing had the flavor of a horror film set, so I had to give it the right &quot;documentation&quot; :) <br> <br>&quot;The Bathroom Murder Scene&quot; <br>Directed by Lynn Magnuson <br>Starring all my friends on Instructables.com <br> <br>Coming soon to a bathroom near YOU!
LOL<br> <br> Invite the NEW girl friend home and invite her to use the shower to freshen up - and leave a huge carving knife in the sink.....<br> <br> LOL<br> <br> <br> I think she will leave silently by the window....
*** snicker ***
Nice idea. This does seem easier than actually murdering someone.
True, but some people ARE worth the extra effort. :-) <br> <br>Pretty cool though. All it needs is a red rug in front of the shower cut out in the shape of a person with white &quot;tape&quot; around it.
A really fun idea, Halloween or otherwise! Probably few other themes would be as theatrical.
Am I the only one to check this out because It reminded me that Dexter returns tonight?
lol... right? It reminded me of &quot;Physco&quot; first then i thought, &quot;Thats right, DEXTER is on tonight!!&quot; ...
SO EXCITED FOR DEXTER TONIGHT!!!!!!! :))) Have you been a fan since season 1 too?? :)
Oh yeah Season 1 started it all for me too. So tonight I'll have the cold beer and the phone unplugged. No interruptions!!!
I assume that the shower curtain is cloth and would require a liner to be functional? It would be trying to have to remove and replace it when showering otherwise.
It is a vinyl shower curtain from the dollar tree. We usually use a liner inside a more decorative outer shower curtain, so it worked well for us. The paint doesn't bleed on the vinyl after it has dried good and well, even if it gets a bit of water splashed on it.. Great point!
I would've guessed the paint would flake off the vinyl and leave chips on the floor if it was opened and closed very often. Color me surprised!
Awesome!! So creepy and awful - but in the best way! :)
This is definitely going into my favorites for some future Halloween. Thanks for sharing!
&quot;Oh Gee Honey, You're so good with Yer' Hands&quot;...HAR.!
Nice. You could also scrawl a bloody message on the mirror with your finger. After your party, the paint will clean right off the glass.
So gross and creepy! The dirty towel kills me...LOL.
Nice build! Thanks for sharing. <br>
Creepy and disgusting! It's wonderful!
This would be an awesome decoration during a house party when a lot of stranger would be using the bathroom. Great job!
What a good idea! I've never thought to decorate a bathroom before. :D
Wow, that is seriously creepy cool! Love the light changing display too! :) What a fun and frugal Halloween touch to the bathroom--I think my kids would love to make one!
