Privacy Film DIY

Hello Sweet Blogging Friends.  

Awhile ago I did a switch a roo with my big farm house window in the living room.


We moved the farmhouse window and shutters to this side window of my living room it fit almost perfect. 

The problem was how to get privacy so my neighbor cannot see in at night. 

I did not want to put blinds behind the farmhouse window.  I thought that would look weird and take away from the farmhouse window.

I found this at Home Depot.  It is a window film that lets light in but gives you privacy.

It was easy peasy to apply. 

The first thing you do is clean the window.  The next step is to use a spray bottle of water with a little dish soap.

You spray the window and then apply your measured cut piece of  film to the window.

  You then use a small scraper to get the bubbles out.
It seriously was so easy to do.

This is how the applied film looked on the window. 
It was a raining and dark day with no sunshine. 

Even with the rainy dark day the light was still coming in the window. 

We no longer saw my neighbor. 
Complete privacy.

Hung the farmhouse window back up.






Now we have complete privacy without taking away from the farmhouse window. 

Light still can filter in through the window.

This was such an easy DIY.
Have a great new week ahead.
Hugs,
Kris

  10. Glad you found this product -- we've been using it for years. Right now we have it in our master bath and on the windows on either side of our front door. I found out about it by accident. An old neighbor gave it to me after she bought it and decided not to use it! Your window set up is gorgeous. xo Kathleen

  15. Kris, that turned out so well. I like that there is no pattern so it looks just like a plain window and doesn't take away from the farmhouse window at all. Love it..Happy Monday..xxoJudy

  16. What a cool idea! I never even knew they made this stuff. All our windows are covered in blinds since we have neighbors all around us but I leave them open during the day. Close them at night. I can understand why blinds wouldn't work on your window - and you found the perfect solution!

  17. I think I need one in my bedroom! I love the sunshine and I like open blinds, but I do need some privacy sometimes. Especially so when I come be-barreling out of the bathroom half naked only to remember that the sun is shining through! Yikes.

  18. GOOD MORNING! Now this is awesome. I've seen this film before, but we ended up getting a special window for our bathroom instead, but this is such an inexpensive and easy solution. Plus, it really adds that foggy, misty, gorgeous white and dreamy feel!
