How We Used Colored Window Film To Birdie’s Windows – Spoiler: It Was A Super Fast, Cheap, And Easy DIY

Final summer time, whereas on the famously impartial mountain home, Birdie and I had, let’s simply say a “debate” about my use of coloration. She was fearful that my style/model was fairly boring. I actually understood however I wished to reassure her that I nonetheless acquired it (hilarious that I used to be determined to show to my 7-year-old that I can do “younger” and “enjoyable”). So I went on the web and confirmed her just a few of the previous rooms that she hadn’t seen, together with the Ban.do workplace – stuffed with disco balls and colourful window movie and she or he squealed with delight. It reminded each of us how a lot enjoyable coloration may be and whereas her room was already dripping with loads of it, I agreed that placing colourful movies on the diamond sample of her home windows can be so enjoyable (and so simply detachable ought to it’s “an excessive amount of”).

As you possibly can see the room has essentially the most stunning classic home windows, shaky glass and all. And whereas the room didn’t want extra coloration, there was definitely a chance to take it up a notch and be certain that my now 8-year-old thinks I’m “the good, ceaselessly” (her phrases, not mine and she or he pinky swore).

So I ordered WAYYYY an excessive amount of, largely as a result of on the web once they had been all rolled up I couldn’t inform what they’d actually appear to be.

Blue | Yellow | Pink | Inexperienced

So I ordered yellow, teal, sizzling pink, and inexperienced (together with some opaque ones that simply appeared like bizarre floral privateness glass).

The entire thing was fairly simple in addition to ensuring that the squares and triangles measurements had been good (shout out to Gretchen for serving to with that).

It’s truthfully the only course of – you simply want a twig bottle of water and a squeegee. You spray the window after which place the movie which attaches itself instantly. Then squeegee out the surplus water, spreading it round evenly. Catch the surplus water with a towel after which transfer on to the subsequent. So clearly in case you don’t have the grids or don’t have, say 114-year-old home windows with no actual 90 levels, then it could be simpler 🙂

It was really easy I clearly was taking a nap whereas putting in on digital camera. Anybody can do it! In your sleep!

And there you’ve it (and she or he LOVES IT). Now the ONLY draw back to this, which I didn’t discover til we had been finished is that window you see above, is that they’re double-sided and you can too see these coloured home windows from the skin. So if you find yourself driving up it seems to be like three home windows are stained glass in non-historic pastel colours. I don’t actually care as a result of we stay very off of a neighborhood street, however I suppose if our home confronted the entrance in a neighborhood it may look bizarre. Once more, as a result of it’s really easy to take away I’m not apprehensive about it (however it’s screwing up my fantasy of wreathing all our home windows, which I worry may simply must occur subsequent yr anyway).
