Glass Frosting

There's something a little unsettling about a window in a shower. Even if you know that the angle of your house prevents the neighbors from peeping in, I still feel a little awkward about it, and I don't really like looking up from the backyard and seeing shampoo bottles on the window ledge. Time for a solution.

Enter: Rustoleum Frosted Glass Spray Paint. Say WHAT?! Spray paint for frosting glass? It's true, my friends. So very true. So first things first, there was a large space on one side of the window, so my handy husband caulked it.

Then I used a razor and some baking soda/water mixture to clean off the muck from the window frame. In 50 years of existence, it had gotten very mucky. I'm sorry you had to see this. Next I taped around the metal frame with some painters tape and sprayed away! It really is that simple. I just sprayed about 12 inches away from the glass and did about three coats. When I first sprayed it, it was looking a little splotchy and inconsistent, but after letting it dry for about five minutes, it evened out. Be patient. The longer I waited, the more even it looked. My only problem is that with these windows being so old, I think there were some flaws and inconsistencies in the glass that left a few strange marks in the frosted glass, but other than that it is very smooth and the perfect amount of transparency to let light in but no peeping toms.

After a couple of showers, it has stood up to the moisture very well! And it is wipeable, but easily scrapes off with some effort so that if I get sick of it, I can remove it.

For about $4, you can't beat it.

Spray paint for the win.
