Hi everyone! I am so excited to share this project with you. I have a long window next to my front door. I don’t like having to put a heavy curtain there, it makes the room so dark. If I put up a sheer, it lets in the light, but anyone can see into the house.
So what can I do to the window so I can see out of it when the doorbell rings? I want to be able to see out, but people not see in….and let the sunshine in!
This is the before:
This is the window by my front door. Right now the sun is on the other side of the house, but in the morning the sun comes brightly through this window. So what did I do??? How did it turn out??
Wow what a difference!!! Here is what it looks like from outside looking in:
Do you see how from the outside…it just shows reflection of the fountain, not inside!
So what did I do? I applied this…
I ordered 2 8 FL. oz bottles of Gallery Glass from Amazon it takes you to the least expensive value. Under $7 a bottle. All together with shipping….less than $20.
So…how did I do it?? How do you apply it? Well it is sooooo easy! Can you fingerpaint swirls? Then you can do this.This is the first time I ever had tried this product. It is white, but dries clear.
I started by pouring 1 bottle into a glass bowl. I covered the floor area and window seal with a old sheet. I used painters tape all around the sides of the window. Now this is where it gets fun….yes, I said fun! Starting from the top, start spreading on the stuff with your fingers. Yes, I said your fingers! I just did little swirls with my fingers, like fingerpainting. If you glop (Is that a word?) it on…be sure to work it in. You don’t want any heavy glops. Just little circles all around. This is a up close look….
This is what it looks like from outside….so far:
Do you see how with just the first coat how you already can’t see in very well? When I was finished with the first coat, I went back added more but smaller circles this time.
I know what your thinking….yes it looks a mess!
At this point, I was nervous…but you know me by now…that doesn’t stop me!
This is what it looks like from outside!
I am so happy with it!! I can see out…they can barely see in, very obscured.
I was thinking…a friend of mine spent loads of money on his side window by door. He got the waterfall look, or rain look. It would be interesting to try that. But alas, my home is Mediterranean style, not mid-century modern.
So what do you think?
another great feature…dries fast…after a couple of days…you can clean using windex!
