$75 Giveaway: Wallpaper for Windows

Many years ago, I used Wallpaper for Windows to create privacy at my home in Los Angeles. Recently I was contacted by Wallpapers for Windows and when I checked out the website, I was stunned and amazed at the fabulous offerings they now have.

I love many of their designs, like…
wpw dec accents
and ….
wpw new orleans
But eventually decided on Avalon,
which is semi private and contemporary looking.

I like the unexpectedness of it’s modern look with the florals and vintage goodies in my living room.
I had 2 projects I wanted to use Avalon for…
A window on a side entrance door (seriously I should call it the front door because that is the one everyone uses)
And the glass door on a cabinet that is being transformed to glassware cabinet. I have been procrastinating on this for way too long.
For both pieces of glass, I used Wallpapers for Windows TRIM TO SIZE SERVICE…it was super simple:
measurement
I measure my panes of glass, length and width; sent in the measurements;
and in and in a few days I received trimmed to size pieces.
They were all labeled - perfect for my projects.
This service is a nominal fee…but well worth it.

Since I have worked with Wallpaper for Windows before I do know that cutting it by yourself is really easy too…so you can easily do it at home if you prefer!

This Trim to Size Service just saves you a bit of time!
The first project I tackled was my door.
A couple years ago I sprayed it with glass frosting and painted a stencil on it…and loved it…but since I am a DIYer and always changing things up…
it was time for the door to get its makeover.

Door Before

old door
I removed the treatment by using a spray: Painters Pal from Goo Gone and a sharp putty knife.

I prepped the surface my cleaning it thoroughly
and waiting for it to dry.
To apply Wallpaper for Windows, the process is super simple. In fact my friend was hanging out with me as I did the cabinet door and she was amazed at the transformation and how quickly I whipped that together.
Spray the glass with a soapy water solution (enter ratio); peel backing off of the wallpaper (do not get the backing wet); Place on glass.

Spray generously on top of the film; Use the squeegee to remove bubbles..work from the inside out.

Ta-Da!

My second project
I have had this cabinet that has been in my garage for, well, let’s just say way too long (years). First I was going to paint it red…then white…then, well, I brought it inside…
and ultimately I decided to leave it alone.
(I happen to love real wood)
As nothing was speaking to me.

Cabinet Before and After
old cabinet in house       cabinet full finished
I cleaned up the pieces and changed out the hardware
and that already made a huge difference, but I am not one to display her glassware or china, so I wanted something light that would dress up the cabinet and "hide" the pieces that were going inside.

finished cab top
I will be adding shelves to the cabinet and painting the inside for sure…
and I have a suspicion I will be painting the cabinet in time too….
but for now, I cleaned it up, changed the knobs,
 and added the Avalon Wallpaper for Windows.
I am kind of loving it.

    I love so many of them! I would pick deco portholes for my glass doors. To cut down on cooling costs in the summer, it would look Great and still be able to peek out. And also my bathroom window, 'cause these are my goodies not the neighborhoods :)
    And a nice etched version for all other windows, what an exciting way to change and improve.

    I think that the Monte Carlo etched glass pattrn is my favorite and am thinking about installing it on my mirrored closet doors in the Master Bedroom. I have been looking for awhile now for something classy that would cover them and I think that I have found it!

  16. I think I may love the Avalon, or maybe the Orleans. I am glad I saw this post because I am buying a new house and need to do something with the high windows in a beautiful sunny bathroom and I really did not want to cover them with shades. This just may be the answer!
