The reason it's taken me so long to figure out what to do with it is I like the bit of light it provides, so I really wasn't too thrilled with putting up curtains or something else that was going to make it darker. So, I did nothing.....until NOW!
This little discovery is the perfect solution actually. It adds privacy, still lets in light and camouflages the window well. EUREKA!!
Gila. As you can see from their website, there are all sorts of added bonuses with the product like UV ray reduction, and energy saving benefits. They had several to choose from at Lowe's....I opted for the frosted glass look, although there were a couple others that were really pretty, including two that resembled stained glass.
I have to tell you, I was a bit intimidated with the whole thing....but, I just followed along with the step-by-step directions and it went really well actually.
|the half-way mark|
I was able to handle this window on my own, especially since it was in two separate panels...but I could see if it was a wider window, a second pair of hands would be really helpful.
I know there are many folks who have a garage window or bathroom window that present the same challenges I just described. I would say this product could be the solution they've been looking for.
The packaging says it takes several days to fully "cure", but I'm pleased with how easily it went up, how well it adhered and I don't have any air bubbles or slippage.
I do have a lot of the solution and a fair amount of the film leftover. Hhhhhmmmmm......I just may have to do the other window on the other side of the room.
