Frosted Pattern Privacy Glass DIY

Frosted Pattern Privacy Glass abeautifulmess.com     We have been loving our time in our new studio space so far! It's so fun to have a place to call our own and personalize each room to all our needs. The main office space sits just behind the living room on the front of the house, and we can see the view of the street through the large glass door pane. As nice as it is to see all the cars and people go by on the street, sometimes it can be a little distracting when you're trying to concentrate. We decided that frosting the window would give us some privacy (but still let in light), but we wanted to do it in a fun way, of course!Frosted Pattern Privacy Glass abeautifulmess.com       Supplies: Glass frosting spray, painter's tape. Frosted Pattern Privacy Glass abeautifulmess.comFirst, clean the glass with glass cleaner and wipe dry with a soft towel. Frosted Pattern Privacy Glass abeautifulmess.com Use the painter's tape to make your pattern (we chose stripes), and make sure the edges are firmly pressed against the glass. Frosted Pattern Privacy Glass abeautifulmess.com  Use the glass frosting spray as directed, and spray the exposed areas of glass. I did three coats of the spray, leaving adequate dry time in between, to make the frosted part as opaque as possible. You'll probably want to open a window after each round as the fumes are pretty strong. Frosted Pattern Privacy Glass abeautifulmess.com   Once your frost is dry, slowly peel your tape lines off and you're done!Frosted Pattern Privacy Glass abeautifulmess.com    Frosted Pattern Privacy Glass abeautifulmess.com      We're really happy with how the door turned out! It is definitely less distracting when someone passes by, but we can still see outside, and it lets in lots of light as well. The stripe pattern is a perfect balance as well—it's definitely eye-catching, but because it's done in frost instead of a color, it's more of a subtle overall effect. This could really be done on any glass surface in a house, and it's removable with paint thinner as well. It's a win-win! xo. Laura
