In our little abode, R and I have a teeny bathroom window. I like having a window in the bathroom because it lets light and fresh air in. However, this window has a flaw. It overlooks a neighboring parking lot, not to mention it is directly across from another buildings window.
Case in point:
and let’s not forget the window across the way.
Don’t let the screen deceive you. It is a clear shot into the bathroom and to where I hop naked into the shower. Who knows what kind of Peeping Tom or Voyeur is out there with high-powered, long-range binoculars. Leering at me while I try to undress behind the shower curtain.
So I came up with an idea. I would creat a screen to place on top of the screen.
I started out by measuring the window. With dimensions in hand, I used some leftover lace my mom gave to me. I liked this lace, because the pattern was dense.
I added a half inch to each side to allow for a seam and cut.
I then got to sewing, nothing fancy. I wanted a simple panel that I could tack up to the window.
Once the panel was finished, I used a few beads of hot glue to glue the panel in place. And just like that it was up.
Now, I know you are probably thinking, “Lady you can still see through it.” Exactly. I wanted light to still shine through without it shining on all my lady bits. I feel the lace makes the window translucent and not transparent, which is what I wanted.
You too can keep those peeping eyes at bay with a little lace. And if you don’t have any on hand, check your local thrift stores. They sometimes have it.
