The $5 Makeover

James and I finally solved a small issue we had been struggling with in our bathroom - window treatment or not to window treatment our only source of natural light in that room. Now to our neighbors, seeing inside our bathroom probably was more of a bigger issue then small ;) so we needed to solve it fast.
First we had mini-blinds that came with the house up for almost half a year, which every time I saw them I felt like we were renters instead of the actual owners of the home. We pulled those down and put up a dark brown, natural roman shade, but it just made the room too dark during the day. So off to Home Depot where we found Rust-Oleum Specialty Frosted Glass Spray. Incredibly easy to use and cheap!

We just lightly washed the windows and after taping the sides up,
we sprayed about 3 coats on each pane.

In less than an hour we had the perfect amount of privacy and natural light. The only downside was the smell! Just terrible, so make sure it's a nice day so you can open some windows for fresh air. Also, between coats make sure you wipe off the extra frost dust on the glass so the next coat applies thicker.
