"Frosted" Privacy Window

We have small sidelight windows on either side of our front door.  


(This is an old picture...I have since painted the door black to match the shutters on our house.  
See here.)

And here's how it looks from the inside.  


There wasn't much privacy with nothing covering the windows.  And between neighbor children peering in to see if we were home (Ryan loves that!) and trying to hide from door to door salesman, we wanted some privacy.  

Awhile back I tried to hang curtains like these on the windows.
But I had to hang the curtains with magnetic curtain rods because there is no room to add a tension rod.  That just meant that the kids pulled them down everytime they wanted to see who was at the door.  So I returned the sheer curtains and magnetic curtain rods and was back at square one.  

And then....{enter pinterest} I found a great (and cheap-o!) solution.  I found out that you can make your own privacy film type window covering from CONTACT PAPER!  
(Similar to this, but about 1/5 the price tag.)    

(Idea found here.  Thanks Greg and Ashley!)   

I reduced the size of the stencil they posted on their blog because my windows are smaller.  


Then I traced and cut and traced and cut. 
(This reminded me of the felt leaf garland I made.)
I did most of my cutting out in the school parking lot waiting for my kindergartener.     


And here's my progress after finishing the one side.



And the view from outside at night.


I like the pattern and the privacy.

PS - Even though it looks frosted, this is just regular old contact paper.  

Thanks for stopping by...feel free to stop and stay awhile!  :)

  6. I love it! And what a great idea to make the stencil smaller. I had the exact same problem with my front door window. I made some cute curtains that the kids have slowly destroyed. This has been on my to do list for a while but after seeing your it may get done sooner. I'm a new follower from HOH.

  11. I love it! I was just looking at some spray paint yesterday that was supposed to do the same thing, but I don't want anything that permanent. Clear contact paper is the perfect solution, and I have some that I keep on hand to make book covers. I'm going to start drawing out my pattern right now!

  30. You did a great job on your windows! I did something like that in the past -- and then I discovered D-C-Fix at Berlin Wallpaper: http://www.berlinwallpaper.com/dcfix/ It's a decorative contact paper-type STATIC CLING that doesn't require wetting the glass first like the window cling products at the big box stores. Works great -- if you ever need something like this in the future ... or if one of your readers wants your fantastic results but doesn't have your incredible patience! :-)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The contact paper has only been on the windows for a few weeks and there actually have not been any fingerprints left on it. In between putting the cut outs on the windows, I was more "buffing" with a dry rag. I'm thinking the same technique may work if fingerprints become a problem, or just replacing a cut out if it's really bad.

  76. Hi - very nice job - would not have thought to use contact paper. I would like to do something like this in my house (I have the same small sidelight windows). But - my foyer is very dark - so I would probably need a more light filtering solution.

    I have a few ideas...I will let you know when I do it!

    Hopefully - you will visit my blog as well. I just did a transformation of a stainless steel range hood - which I shared on a few blogs this week!

  77. The small sidelight windows provide a picturesque display of your door. Plus, it’s a lot safer inside since you can see anyone behind it. You did a pretty remarkable job with the covering. It’s so artsy and creative of you. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  78. So I LOVE this idea!! But I have a question...would it be "easier" to make two designs one slightly smaller than the other and then cut the "space in between" the two of them? I'm pretty far from perfect, so I'm not sure how great it would look if I had to line up all those individual pieces perfectly. What do you think?

    ReplyDelete
  79. I think that would work. You could really come up with any design you would like!

  80. I'd like to try this on my front door that is a huge pane of glass but I'm curious - do the ends of the contact paper start peeling off? What if they get dirty? Was it really difficult to place them evenly? Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Kate -
      So far I haven't had any problem with the paper peeling off. (They've been up for 8 months and have endured some HOT summer sun!) If they get dirty (mostly fingerprints around here) I spray some windex on a rag and gently rub them clean. They weren't too hard to place evenly. I was a little OCD about spacing them, so some I had to redo. I also stepped back periodically and made sure they were spaced to my liking.
      Hope that helps!

      Delete
  81. I just put solid sheets of contact paper on the bottom two rows of my glass paneled double front door - dogs were barking at EVERYONE that passed. I had a lot of air bubbles. AFTER I was done, I researched on the internet and found a number of sites that recommended spraying windex on the window first, then putting the contact paper on. Supposed to be easier to move around and push out bubbles. Might re-do mine. . . might.

  83. We recently bought a French door and we are going to do a sliding barn door between our master bedroom and bathroom. I want to frost the glass and wonder if this would work.... I guess my only concern would be the steam from the shower - would that damage the contact paper? Am I better off using a spray to frost the glass?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hello there - I'm not 100% sure on this one. Maybe put up some test contact paper shapes and see if the steam and moisture from the bathroom damages it? Sorry I'm not much help on that one - good luck!

    1. Hi Dalia -
      I just eyeballed it in spacing everything out. A friend used this idea on her window and she did the same and it turned out great. everything looked well-spaced without any measuring. As for air bubbles, just work slowly when peeling the contact paper off the paper backing and apply slowly from edge to edge and those shouldn't be a problem.

  121. I work for a home improvement tv show -
    We had a segment on the show a while back with this same thing - here's the video

    This is better because the pattern is already in the film.

  123. Wow! This is amazing! Contact paper, that's all!? How clever, and simple all at the same time! I love it. I would really love to do that for the windows on my front door. As mean as this is for me to say, I would just to have some privacy! All of the little kids in our neighborhood come up to our door, and stand on their cute little tippy toes, and stare right into our living room! They are so adorable, but I hate it when we are eating dinner, or watching tv and suddenly looking up to see little faces peering in on me! Not only would it give us some much needed privacy, but it would also add a little bit of flair to our door!

  124. Saw this pop up on Pinterest. I'm wondering how it has held up and which direction your front door faces? Mine is a south-west facing door so I'm not sure the work would be worth it if the effect does not last. THANKS in advance for the reply!

  125. I'm looking for window installation in Orange Beach. It would be great to have some new ones. They are currently very used.

  127. I love the design on this frosted window selection. I have never had a frosted window installed but I like the privacy. I will have to take this into consideration.

  128. I had no idea that you could do window frosting from home. That is really cool and usually I only see stuff like that coming from a window company. It is really amazing and you did a really great job.

  129. I have been wanting to do this to my own windows. I am amazed how well it looks. What is contact paper? If I can't find it, should I just call a window company?

  130. This is kind of cool that you can frost windows. I think that's a good way to give yourself more privacy in your home. It probably helps keep the harsh light of the sun from ruining furniture, while not completely blocking it. That's so cool! http://www.newjerseywindow.com

  133. What a great little cheat you used to make the glass look frosted! It doesn't look like a DIY project at all. I am very impressed. Maybe I should try doing something like this to my own windows...
