It’s time for another giveaway! This month’s giveaway sponsor is Wallpaper For Windows. I was very excited about trying out their product. I’ve worked with window film before. I love how it offers the opportunity to give privacy or block an unattractive view while still allowing light to enter a space. I have a shower enclosure in my pool bath that I wanted to give a little extra style and add additional privacy. The pattern I chose for this project was Big Bamboo Etched Glass Privacy Film.
The film arrived safely packaged, double-boxed, along with easy-to-follow directions. There are only 5 steps and one of them is to wash your hands. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
- Clean glass with window cleaner
- Wash hands to prevent dirt and oils from getting on the film
- Fill a spray bottle with water and 2 drops of liquid soap, spray glass thoroughly
- Remove film from backing and position on glass
- Squeegee out air bubbles
- Enjoy the results! (This one I added myself…)
Here’s my before. Please excuse the fact that there isn’t a showerhead nozzle. It was missing when we bought the house. We’ve been in it over two years now, but have more bathrooms than people. So, this one has never been used. Guess we’ll get around to installing one someday…
The film came with a free squeegee/applicator. For the most part, I used my own window squeegee as it covered more space. I did use their applicator around the door handle and along the bottom as I trimmed.
Wallpaper For Windows offers a trim-to-size service. I highly recommend this! All I had to do was give them the measurements of my shower door panels. They trimmed the vinyl to fit the width, but left the length a little long. This saved me time and allowed me to get a more custom fit. I was able to trim the bottom quite easily with a razor-edge tool.
Here’s what it looked like after the film was applied.
Notice how beautifully the pattern lines up from one panel to the other…
This film is a breeze to install. It only took about 15 minutes. And it can be a one-person job. However if you’re applying long sheets like I was, I recommend an extra pair of hands to help you pull the film off the backing. It just makes it easier to handle.
Besides being easy to install, it’s also removable, reusable, and reduces heat which will save you money. It comes in a variety of styles and colors. There’s something for every decor. And you can win a gift certificate!
Now you have a chance win a $75 gift certificate to Wallpaper For Windows!
