Recently, I had three bathroom windows to etch/frost. Each bathroom had one single window, identical to the one pictured here to the left. My client wanted just the bottom six panes of each window to be frosted. Each window has a similar type Roman shade.
When you frost/etch glass, it is a permanent process, so there is no turning back. It does allow some light to filter through, while providing you with privacy. The options are limitless with what you can do with etching. For this project, no design was desired, just a clean frosting. I will be doing two glass etching projects in my own home soon, involving some design work. I will be posting that process here in an upcoming post. In the meantime, I am struggling with painting the trim and the wall space below the chair rail in my dining room, so that is keeping me from doing some more creative projects!
Here is another one of the three bathrooms, with the bottom six panes frosted/etched. You can see how this really does give the room privacy. The Roman shade can be kept at a height that just covers the top 6 panes that were left untouched.
For this project, I used my favorite etching project, Etchall Creme. I cannot find it locally in my area, so I order it directly from the company, online. If you do try this product or are thinking about trying it, give them a call with any of your questions. They are very customer friendly and helpful!
