Contact paper window films

I've been mulling over what to do with the windows in the computer room for awhile. Rather than the usual curtains I wanted to try something different. So a couple weeks ago I bought some frosted contact paper to make window films. I was initially planning on covering the windows with large sheets with a few shapes cut out here and there but after about 100 tries, each with countless bubbles and folds and wrinkles (and curses), I ended up taking a different plan of action.

Instead of one large sheet with a few shapes cut out, I cut out dozens of raindrop shapes in various sizes.

Not done yet but I really like how it looks so far, especially since you can still see what's going on outside through the spaces in between.

  1. I work at a sign shop and I use vinyl like that everyday. Its hard to apply onto glass. You could use a spray bottle with water and a teensy bit of dish liquid in it, then rub with a hard squeegee to smooth out bubbles and water mixture. I like your rain drops motif. Very cute!
