DIY-contact paper privacy cover

6.06.2010



This is the window in our office. I love to have the blinds completely
open but our window faces the front of the house and the neighbors across
the street are very close and I don't always feel like having an audience.
I made this with some frosted contact paper I had lying around the house.
The whole thing to about 20 mins +/-.
I covered the bottom window in contact paper-being careful to avoid bubbles.
Measuring from the middle, I marked every half over and over until I had a grid
of squares. I used a metal ruler and xacto knife to slice the squares in half,
peeling off the top piece.
Believe it or not, it really does help block the view in!
What do you think?

  7. Looks great! I'm glad you explained how you did it because I would have put each triangle on individually - that would have taken way too much effort!
