I promised you I would share the results of my window film project in my girls room! Without further delay, here it is!
For the bathroom project and beginning instructions that apply to this project, see Part 1.
All you will need to purchase to complete this project is a white Elmer's Painters marker, clear Con-Tact brand adhesive liner (it says clear but it actually looks frosted), masking tape (if desired), and Windex glass cleaner (or other brand).
I do almost all my shopping locally but for your convenience and/or comparison, I've included links to the products listed so that you can see what I'm referring to. I know that a lot of folks shop online now so perhaps these links will be an added convenience for you, if you are one of those "on-line shoppers".
Elmer's Painters Opaque Paint Marker, Medium Tip, White (7333)
Con-Tact Simple Elegance Shelf Liners, Clear, 5-Foot Roll (Pack of 6)
I freehanded most of the project and am very happy with the results, however, I think I may have gotten a bit carried away at the end. It was a good experience and my girls are happy with it!
|1) After cleaning the window, I applied the film|
as instructed in Part 1
|2) Film applied as shown in Part 1|
|3) Beginning stages of my freehand creation with the|
Elmer's Painters marker.
|4) Decorating in process. I love the way the paint looks|
dark with the daylight shining through but at night,
it is very white. I think the change in appearance is cool!
|Finished view from outside at night! |
See, I did get a bit carried away.
Perhaps I should have just left the bottom sections plain.
Oh well! The girls like it!
|Top section in the morning light. I left this uncovered except|
for the cutouts so my girls can see if it's sunny, snowing or
raining from their bedroom.
|Another view in the morning light|
|Yet another view in the morning light, right top two sections|
|Bottom sections in the morning light.|
