Master Bathroom Window Remodel

After moving into our new house, I realized that our large 46" x 46" window in the master bathroom was going to be a challenge.  We have the woods in our backyard, but that doesn't change the vulnerability that I felt when going to take a shower.  I wanted to be able to walk into the bathroom and enjoy the nature of our backyard without blocking the natural sunlight or purchasing new blinds.  So, with all major decisions that I make, I procrastinated, which by the way is not always a bad thing.  I just needed the time to think about how this was going to work.  

And with all good things where do I turn to? Pinterest!  I came across this fabulous work of art made by Greg & Ashley over at their blog Seventh House on the Left.  Check it out, I'll wait for you :) 

I was able to take their design template and instructions to use for my bathroom window and let me tell you, 
IT WORKED!!! It is my masterpiece and I am so proud!! 

I must let you know that Greg & Ashley used Clear Contact Paper (which is actually frosted) but since this was going to be in my bathroom I was a little concerned about the moisture from the shower and bathtub.  I went ahead and bought the actual frosted window sticker from Lowe's, I felt like this would guarantee a non-peel finish.  The Contact paper may have worked just fine, but I didn't want to do the work twice. 

Here is the window before.  I didn't think about taking the picture until after I started, but you can see what I was dealing with....

And here is my masterpiece....

So, what do you think?  I would love to hear some of your thoughts.  I am not finished decorating the whole bathroom, but this was a huge step towards making it a place of relaxation!

Until Next Time,

    1. The curtain is actually a shower curtain along with the matching towels and are from Target.

  4. For a small space guest bath or powder room, you can cut down on storage space and make the room look larger with streamlined fixtures and incorporate more expensive fixtures and finishings, making it a very special room.
