Pat Ruge on Nov 16, 2017Depending on where you are in the country, assuming PA, the West facing windows will absorb the afternoon sun. In some cases that can be a good thing. In the south, it can be extreme, as in my case. In the North, it can be a good thing, if heat is what you are looking for. I chose to block as much as possible for when temp approach 110+ it is unbearable. Keep in mind, that my house has about 15 transom windows and enough light is not the problem - heat is the problem.

This is a problem with transom windows in all areas that are hot. I did the same on my front door with that kind of window. Mine were more subdued and made them blend in. I also made sure the outside and inside were done, so there were no trashy sides. It was a job but I too used home made modpodge. Spray glue was horrible.
You gave great instructions
