We wanted to keep renovating, have the light come in the windows - but not have all the people walking and driving past watch the progress. I had purchased this handy roll of frosted mac tac for the bathroom window that faced our neighbours kitchen window (awkward!) and it worked great there.
We covered the huge living room and the spare room window and it works great - total privacy, but it is so bright and lovely.
That glow is from the living room window that I covered with the frosted mac tac - pretty impressive huh? Oh and what do you think of my fancy red light?
