Adding Privacy

Hey all!

Looks like it's going to be a gorgeous day around here today.  Sunny is shining finally after a few days of rain!

Today, let's talk about the front door.

Our front porch needs some aesthetic work done to it.  It's not bad, but it just needs a little somethin-somethin.  It needs privacy and colour to make it stand a bit.




The door is actually set back a bit from the front of the house, so kind of disappears.

Except at night.  Now that it's getting darker earlier, I'm usually walking the dog in the dark for her last before bed walk.  The other day I was across the street about to make my way home and I could see my kids in the house with their pyjamas.  eeeek  I had never noticed this before.  Some of the lights were on and you could see clearly into the house!

So, today, I'm spending time to add some very much needed privacy to the front door and maybe some colour.

This is what I'm thinking.

1.  Changing the inserts.  I think this cost will add up quickly.  But it is stunning.

2.  Adding frosted contact paper for privacy. Privacy but would still let the light through.

Or make a design out of contact paper and adhere it.  Lots of work.  And I'm not sure I have the patience for this.



3. Maybe spray painting on Frosted Glass is more up my alley. Any one use this spray before?

As you can see I'm leaning towards painting the door black or charcoal like the front hall.

I'm unsure about painting the side lights black like the first two picks or leaving them white like the last pic.  What do you think?

So that's what I'm thinking of doing today, since it's a gorgeous fall day out.

Any other suggestions for adding privacy? (curtains are definitely out according to hubby)
