I have a bathroom window just to the left of our front door. Colonial type
house with a porch that runs the length of the house with seven windows out
front where each window has 2 inch white wood blinds. You can see the white
blinds in all the windows from the street. Looks good having all the
windows with the same window treatment. When at the front door, if someone
turns the blinds in the downward direction you can see someone on the
toilet. If it is in the upwards direction you would have to lay on the porch
to see anything up into the window, which we have had kids do from time to
time. We need something to either spray or place on the inside of window to
make the window opaque so from the street you can still see the white window
blinds but up close looking through the window is a little discussed. This
stuff would work but I don't the geometric print. Please post any ideas.
Many years ago my wife and I rented an apartment with a clear window pane
in the bathroom. I was able to buy a special paint for frosting windows at
the local paint store. I applied it to the inside of the window and it
worked fine. I don't know if it is still obtainable though.
The best fix might be to replace the glass.
Applying a saturated epsom salts solution will provide a frosted appearance on
glass when it dries. And it can easily be removed with water.
Add epsom salts in boiling water until no more will dissolve. Add a little white
glue if desired for better durabilty. Brush a small amount of the liquid onto
the glass while still warm. The liquid will quickly evaporate, leaving behind a
film of white opaque crystals.
