    why would you do that when you can purchase a removable privacy film?

    Do you mean etch your windows? Yes, you need to use professional etching cream or spray. You could just use white or light gray spray paint, but you need to practice with the paint and the design to see if you would be happy with that. Best wishes 😇

    Any of the sticky back paper products like "contact paper" has a frosted product.

    I used the Contact paper that is translucent, with a pattern that obscures the view, on an entry door and and a basement window. Work carefully to avoid bubbles or wrinkles. It lasted for the entire time I lived in that house, almost 20 years!

    You can buy contact paper that sticks to the glass, looks like frosted glass or even stained glass and lets the light in. Check out Home Depot .

    I used Contact with an obscuring pattern on an entry door and a basement window, on the inside of course. It lasted for many years.

    I did my side windows at the front door with gallery glass window color paint. I used the Crystal clear. You can order the 8 ounce bottles on line will run you about $7 or $8 a bottle. It took me 1 1/2 bottle to do both side windows. I could not find this size in any of the craft stores. I simply put it on with my finger tips, really thick, then kept tapping it to give it texture. It turned out great! The best thing is if you don't like it, it just peels right off. It will look weird until it completely dries. I think you will be pleased with the results. The pictures really don't do it justice, but I think you will get an idea. Practice on a glass from an old picture frame before trying the whole project, and good luck!
