An Obscured Crescent

01 Feb

..and since we were working on the door area we thought we would take things one step further. A couple of weeks ago I went onto eBay and bought something to obscure the small crescent window in our front door it’s a privacy window film..we had toyed with some curtains and I have even had cardboard up there before..but both did not really look great and either it obscured all the light or still allowed people to look in.

So, we got about 5 times more than we needed..but for $17 bucks it is not a huge deal. We cut out an area slightly bigger than the window ( roughly shaped accordingly)

..then once we had the rough cut we held it up to the window and used a case cutter to trim it down to the exact size we needed. Sprayed the window with some soapy water and peeled off the side which adheres to the window..

..no picture but it fits like a glove. An in the past you could see right in but here is the view from the outside now:

We went with a really base design but there are all kinds on ebay and they range in both price and size…very handy way to let in light while still being able to keep out prying eyes..or thieving eyes since we are mostly concerned with people not being able to see on the rare occasion we are both not home.

    good job – prying eyes (aka thieving eyes) are no good no matter where you live!
