Window glazing?

I have a front door that has a large window in it - I want to frost or glaze it for privacy.
Any recommendations for products?
Thanks,
Colin

in my experience: frosted contact paper is probably not conveniently available in large sizes so a seam or overlap will be needed. the spray frost stuff will certainly come out uneven. a reflective tint will be as see-thru after sunset as a sheer curtain. why not take a snapshot and some measurements and outfit it with a privacy curtain of a two-sided flannel or other privacy material print you pick out for fun or to match the other windows. if you're strapped for a skilled seamstress check your local dry cleaners or continue to hang out in the sewing/crafts department at walmart where you find the fabric you want. you may want to look out the door to see who's there so consider a double upper curtain rod above with a single rod below holding the outside sheer and the inside privacy on a spring rod. cheapest would be a large solid hemmed pillowcase or wide hemmed flat bed sheet. cut hem at edges to give you curtain rod access. vinyl shower curtains are another possibility unless direct sunlight is involved where they will deteriorate more quickly. consider a wide angle peephole if you are permanently blocking the window by screwing up decorative double sided framed art.

There are spray on products for frosting it. If you want to get fancy, have a stained glass light made for it.

you can have it sandblasted, if you do make sure it is on the outside pane of glass if it is a insulated thermalpane. or else it will break from the sun. if it is a single pane of glass do it on the inside for easy cleaning. you could also acid etch the glass , its a paste you paint on then wash off, and if both of those involve to much work, you can have a glass shop cut you a new piece of obscure glass, there are lots of diffent patterns. stick on stuff doesnt look all that great and with condinsation it peels off or scratches.
