Rabbitgoo is probably the oddest name for an Amazon store I’ve ever heard of, but it has saved us from having to worry about the UPS man seeing us in various states of undress if we’re showering in the downstairs bathroom.
While the glass on our front entryway is great for letting in natural light, it looks directly onto our (fairly crowded) street and I wasn’t a huge fan of people being able to see directly into our house. After researching a few options, I decided to tackle putting up this frosted glass film, which has worked out really well. It has given us the privacy we need while still letting in natural light. On top of that, it’s great for renters as it doesn’t use glue and is easily removed.
I will say, it does take some practice and patience to use this. It’s a bit of a weird process because it adheres to your window with water and static cling. I used about three rolls, but that’s because I wasted 1/2 a roll through messing up my cuts. Moral of the story: buy more than you think you need, follow their directions, and make sure you measure exactly how big your window is. If unsure, I would err on the side of caution and make your cuts a bit bigger than you think you will need them because you can always cut the excess off once the film is up. If it’s too small, you’ll have to scrap the whole piece.
Here is what you will need to Rabbitgoo your window:
Window Privacy Film – $7.95/roll (measures 17.5″x78.7″ but comes in various sizes)
Squeegee – $10.36 (this is SO important. Do not try and substitute a credit card or anything else for a squeegee.)
X-Acto Knife – $5.95 (this is the one I have, though I don’t love it because the blade comes out easily when loose. These are pretty common so I trust you have on in your arsenal that isn’t as hazardous)
As the saying goes, the solution here was simple, but not easy. Ultimately, I found the semi-tedious process of getting this stuff up worthwhile, but I would love to hear from you guys what your experiences are if you try it out for yourself. Thanks for stopping by!
