Window Films

Is it just me, or has there been a lot of buzz lately on decorative window films? Well, it's not something I'd usually consider or get excited about, but here's what my kitchen window looks like...

(At least you get to see the top of the new Grohe faucet- which we love btw)

Gorgeous, isn't it? The window is actually twice as tall as you can see (up to the ceiling), but this is how far the shade ever gets opened since it's as far as I can reach (and I don't care to see more brick wall anyways). If you're standing right close to it, you might even get to see the dirt & weeds on the ground below! Needless to say, it's not exactly a great view- and somedays I don't even open the shade! I'm thinking a window film might work wonders here- I'll be able to happily open the shade for some light, but I won't have to stare at... that.

I'm considering the Frosted Jacks and Small White Circles patterns, but I'm pretty sure I'm set on the Frosted Jacks (the circles might be too much with the penny round back splash...).


Thoughts? Anyone have any first-hand experience with these or other window films?

DEFINITELY the jacks. More artsy/modern.

Yes, the jacks seem to fit in with what you've shown us of the rest of the house... I would personally have such a hard time covering up a window, it seems so unnatural... but with your view I think you're probably right!

Have you seen my post about this? Check it out! http://seakettlediaries.blogspot.com/2010/03/window-frosting.html

I just used contact paper and made my own design...I do love the Jacks, though. :)

Ohh Kerrie I'm over to check it out right away!!

and Victoria- yeah, I'm not crazy about covering a window (and Jesse thinks I'm insane), but when I thought about how often I didn't even bother to open the shade because there's nothing I want to look out at... I think it might be worth it. Still not 100% sure though...

If I had to pick between thoste two... Definitely the jacks!!! However, I'd rather have flower sampler.
