We have a sliding glass door which separates an unheated porch from the rest
of the house. The porch is used for storage so we'd like to hide that area
from view. We had a drape in front of the glass door but that's inconvenient
when carrying stuff in or out. I thought of applying some translucent
contact paper to obscure the view but allow light through, but I can just
imagine the folds and bubbles and creases which would result from trying to
apply a 6-foot long piece of contact paper to glass.
When I was in college, I worked at a G.E. lamp glass lab. We used to frost
the inside of bulbs with hydrofluoric acid. Having worked with that stuff, I
know I don't want to be sloshing it about on the porch.
Does anyone know of a coating which is made for this purpose? I imagine an
aerosol can of something that adheres to glass, does not flake off easily
and gives a frosted appearance.
Thanks for any suggestions,
