Frosty Windows

January 15, 2012

This is a little project which was inspired by this post on Bower Power. The front door of our house has a big, paned glass window which was NOT very private. Anyone walking by could see straight into the house and look at me sitting in my chair upstairs. We wanted enough privacy so that the view was blurred, but we could still see out if we needed to. 

The Goods: Martha Stewart Frost Etching Effect paint, stencil brushes....

And of course the Martha Stewart stencils! These things can all be found at Michael's.

I started on the center pane, and worked my way up and out. The key is to get a VERY thin layer of paint on the brush so there's no seepage.

As one pane dried, I would re-align the stencil and move on to the next.

Here's the finished view looking upstairs.

Here's the view from outside. It's enough to blur the view looking in but not completely frost it out.

And a final close-up.

  1. I just found this searching on Pinterest and I love the design! We're thinking about doing this to our dining room windows since our neighbors are about a stones throw away.. :) Thanks for the inspiration!
