Want to apply frosted window film? Its easy, and I made a video to show you how. This works for either window privacy or decorative window film patterns. Watch the video and read through the how to below.
We have some french doors that separate two bedrooms. We love the glass doors, but wanted privacy between the rooms. I started researching how to frost glass doors and decided that using frosted glass film was the way to go with these doors. If you'd like to see how to use frosted glass spray paint, watch our video here.
Why Frosted Window Film?
For a french door, which has a bunch of small windows in it, the film was a much easier option than using the spray product. We wouldn't have to mask off all the wood, we could just cut a piece of frosted glass film to fit each rectangle.
You have a few choices when shopping for window film. (Please consider using our link when buying the film, it helps us pay the bills!) They come in different diffusion densities and sizes. You will need more film than you think, learn from me. I made several mistakes in cutting, and I'm glad I bought more than I thought I needed.
You will need a utility knife with a few brand new blades, and some thick cardboard to cut on. It helps to put down a piece of plywood under the cardboard so you don't cut your floor. A metal ruler or straight edge is key for cutting the film.
Important, be sure the glass is super clean before applying the film. Any traces of paint or polyurethane need to be scraped off and the glass cleaned, or the window film will peel. Learn from my mistakes, OK?
