I’m still slowly making progress in the family room. Our living room and family room are joined by a set of interior French doors. Both rooms serve similar purposes. The living room is where Mr. DIY and I hang out and watch tv. The family room is where the kids hang out. So a little privacy between the two rooms is preferred.

Wallpaperforwindows.com has a huge selection of decorative etched, stained glass and privacy window films. I chose a light frost privacy film for the windows (just measure size and quantity in the order and they cut to size). It’s a translucent film that obscures visibility through the glass. Perfect for allowing the light to shine through but gives a little privacy between the rooms. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to install too!

First, I cleaned my windows. I spritz the glass with Windex, wipe with a dryer sheet and clean with a paper towel. I think I saw this trick on Pinterest and it works so well.

Once the window was dry, I gathered my supplies and washed my hands:

Optional: helper

  • Spray bottle with water and a few drops of dish soap (do not shake)
  • Window film
  • Squeegee (credit card type tool provided with my window film order)
  • Paper towels

Mist the glass with the soap/water solution.

Peel away the window film from backing. (I recommend pulling away from the long side first, not the shorter end to prevent crease/fold line.)

Place onto misted glass. I love that it’s vinyl and not “sticky” (It’s adhesive-free! No residue when removing in the future). Film can be easily moved around for perfect placement.

Once in place, mist the film with soap/water solution. Working from the middle, squeegee the film (this pushes the water and air bubbles out).

Simply dry with a paper towel.

It’s that easy.

See the difference?
