There's tons of the stuff on eBay in all sorts of patterns.
Search for ' window film frosted' and that will get you into the right
area, then find a pattern you like, then a seller that has it. You
can also find one that is similar to what you're looking for, and see
what else the seller has to offer. The bigger guys seem to
There's tons of the stuff on eBay in all sorts of patterns....
Duh. I've solved some unique needs on eBay, but that didn't even occur to
me. Good point.
This was a topic a year or so ago on a board that I frequent. Several
people suggested this site - http://www.decorativefilm.com/index.asp
I don't have any experience with it, but posters were happy with the
product and the various types of films look interesting. (I actually
found myself wishing I needed some film). At my old house, I just used
translucent contact paper that I bought at the local (non-big box)

Thanks. Ya know, I think the comments here inadvertently solved another
upcoming problem... a 2-fer!
We have a massive mirror (one wall of a dining area) in the desert. Trust
me, I didn't design the place. They do that to make the room seem bigger.
Before we bought it, a great Dane had lived there (what a perfect indoor dog
for a townhouse). Apparently, he freaked when he saw himself in the mirror
(sometimes I do too) and jumped up and boxed with himself, or maybe he was
humping himself? (I don't do that). Long scratches, starting about 6 1/2'
up, down both sides. I thought it would be cool to have a local artista
paint a desert scene over the scratched areas, shaped like an archway,
leaving just a little bit of mirror in the middle. I even figured out what
kind of paint to use, but that project isn't on page one. One of these
decorative vinyls just might be a better solution than paint. A lot easier
than moving that mirror, too.
there's also an in-place sandblasting unit that has an attached vacuum. you
could get a blasted pattern on it which would also hide the scratches. calll
a window installation place or two to find out if one is available in your
area (or you can buy one for <$1000 and do your own).
