seeing light {day 4}

day 4

 

today’s photo comes from a house project.  i love the morning light coming through the window.

as of today, we have yet to put any curtains up in our new house. oh, the blasphemy! ha. well, actually, i just LOVE having all the daylight come through the open windows! seriously, one of my FAVORITE things in the world is light coming in the windows.  i don’t like blinds because they block too much even when they are open and they get dusty so easy.

but then we ran into this problem:

bath 1 before

oh hello neighbors. let us put on a show for you! this is their “back door” but really side door that leads out to our shared driveway. it’s unfortunate that it looks directly at our first floor bathroom…

with the toilet RIGHT.SMACK.AGAINST.THE.WALL it’s impossible to get any curtains that hang any length in there. i guess i could have put in short curtains but again, i didn’t really want to block the light too much.

so i took a page out of the Young House Love book: and frosted my windows. {they have a full tutorial HERE} all i had to do was find the window film at Lowes and spend about half an hour adhering it to the window.

easy enough to do and it still lets light through!

here’s a view half way done:

bath during

and here is the view today:

bath after

so there ya go. whenever we have to go, we don’t have to put on a show. lol. but we still get all the day light!!

our dear future guests should be thanking us profusely because they will not have to put on a show when they take a shower either. hee hee.
