Do-It-Yourself Privacy Glass ~ A Cheap DIY Fix

This is the view out our front door. Thanks to an easy DIY project, this is also the view looking into our home. We really wanted privacy glass for our front door, but after calling around and finding out it would cost in the thousands, we decided to try to fix the problem ourselves.

How did we do it? We bought an easy stick-on kit. It uses no adhesives and it looks amazing! We get compliments all the time (of course because people think we spent thousands!) The best part....it has lasted over 2 years! And I expect it to last even longer. Our total cost $40!

We ended up buying something similar to this Window Film 36 Inch X 6.5 Feet. You can pick from a bunch of styles. My biggest recommendation...buy the Gila Complete Application Kit. It costs under $20 and it will make your entire installation so much easier!

Ours has lasted through 2 freezing cold winters and 2 hot and humid summers. We will most likely keep ours up for years, but since it doesn't use any adhesives, it can be easily removed without damaging your windows or door without any trouble. Our next door neighbor is currently using it on her bathroom windows. The film still lets in most of the light without compromising privacy. It's a simple, inexpensive project that you can definitely do on your own.
