in treatment

I'm still trying to figure out what to do about window treatments for our sun room, but I ruled out Emma Jeffs window film because it's pretty pricey (would cost about $75 per window and there are 10 windows in the room!). I had some Japanese lace paper and wondered if I could use that, so I decided to try it out.

It sticks great with just water and peels off so easily it doesn't even damage the paper. It was a bit of a pain to put up because I need one and a half sheets per window and I had to cut it so the over lap wouldn't show, but I think it'll go faster now that I've got the hang of it.

Best part, it costs about $3 per window.

What do you think? (sorry the photo is so crappy, you can see it better if you click on it.)

Love it! Looks great. I wish I'd thought of that when I lived in a c. 1915 house that needed some privacy. Oh, well!

That looks GREAT! It's nice that it's easy to remove. The film I used is super sticky and hard to get off. I had to use nail polish remover to remove it when I messed up one panel!
