Thank you so much for the comments on the chair redo. When I was posting I didn't think anyone would actually be reading my blog! You have motivated me to do more and finish all the projects I have laying around here!
I thought I would share this idea for sidelights or any window you would like to add a design to. I have two windows on the side of my front door. It would drive me crazy when people would come to the door and look through them. Privacy people! I really liked the look of the faux rod iron, but at a price of $125 a window I new I could do better! (I am really thrifty like that!)
My brother has a vinyl business, so I talked him into cutting these for me. So they were free! (But if you would like some, he would sell them for around $40-75 a window depending on the size and detail.)
We first cut out the brown layer and then added a frosted vinyl over that for the privacy. I liked it both ways, you wouldn't have to add the frosted layer. I love how it still lets the light in, and it looks so neat at night when the porch lights illuminate through.
So what do you think? I need to get a better camera and become a better photographer, but hopefully you can get the idea. The best part about it is it's vinyl so when you are tired of it you can just peel it right off. I choose a dark brown, but you could do any color you wanted. My brother liked it so much he did a frosted vinyl on his windows. He likes more of a modern look and did a geometric square pattern that looked really great.
