Elvis has NOT left the building

Once upon a time, many, many years ago, there was a King.

When he died, as even Kings must, it was in a bathroom.

This unfortunate demise seemed worth commemorating in a shower curtain.


A decision with which I heartily agree.

A while back, this shower curtain was the inspiration for our bathroom decorating scheme. Check out this post about it from 2009.

As you can imagine after a bunch of years in the bathroom, Elvis was looking a little tired. But he was NOT ready to leave the building.

So, we're still loving him tender in a clean, bright, updated room he'd be proud to call to home. It's a guest bathroom, so the shower curtain is in remarkably good shape.

A new window brightens up the room, so much so that for days after we installed it, I kept thinking someone had left the light on in there, it was so light when I'd wake up in the mornings.


The paint is clean. The wall colors lighter versions of the pink and green in the shower curtain. The mirror and shelves are the same as the cherry pink.


The trim and the vanity are black--and the vanity is extra tall. My 6'4" dad is one of our most frequent guests. He and his back are thrilled with the taller sink!


We went from vertical to horizontal stripes. Elvis looked plenty tall enough without the black and white vertical stripes that had started to look like prison bars. He finds these pink and green ones much livelier. In fact, they make him want to sing, as you can see from the way he's grabbing that mic on the shower curtain.


Viva, Las Vegas, y'all! And thanks for reading!
