This is the first house we’ve lived in where the master bathroom windows were not covered/frosted in some way to maintain privacy. It’s not exactly ideal because while I love letting the natural light into our house, I don’t necessarily want to share the ahem, view with the neighbors!
Brian initially bought a frosted film for us to cover. He also bought a spray kit that included a squeegee and cloth. But after looking over it, we would need two film kits to cover the size of our window.
I did a little bit more research and frosted spray paint was another good alternative. I liked that we wouldn’t have to cut accurately or make sure there were no bubbles, because if putting on the screen guards on our cell phones are any indication….
We went with Valspar frosting spray:
This is what it looked like after one coat:I highly recommend doing this with the fans running and windows open (if possible). I was a bit lightheaded despite all the circulation coming from our master bedroom windows. Also, make sure you cover your floors, counters, or the general area because the paint traveled and left a fine dust everywhere.
Here is after the next spray:
And here’s what it looks like all finished:
The total cost was around $10 for two cans of the frosted spray paint, which came in much better than the $50 we would have paid for two rolls of film and the kit.
In the future I’d love to be able to replace the window to be able to open and close it for more circulation.
Have you tried frosting a window or using the spray paint? I appreciated the ease of the nozzle and how nice it went on!
