Nothing transforms a room like a pleasant view. Unfortunately, not all windows have a pleasant view! Urban landscapes lead to a lot of unfortunate construction – and that creates a lot of rooms “without a view.” Whether your view is blocked by a giant brick building, an addition with unusual geometry, a basement egress or something equally unappealing, glass paint may be just what you need to rehabilitate a bad look.
Use glass paint to hide a poor view
No one wants to give up a window that lets in daylight, but who wants to look at a brick or cement wall, graffiti or an unattractive view. It can change the entire look of a room. You can cover up the window with window treatments, introduce distractions or even place a frosted film on the glass, but that won’t change the issue, which is that the view from the window looks bad.
Here’s an idea: turn the window into a work of art using glass paint. Glass paint is specially designed to coat glass. It does more than simply adhere to the surface. GlassPrimer™ glass paint is specially formulated to bond permanently with the surface of the paint.
It can be tinted to match virtually any color, and won’t fade, even when exposed to direct sunlight. GlassPrimer™ glass paint can be applied directly to window glass. There’s no need to remove the window, so remedying a bad view becomes an easy do-it-yourself project with glass paint! You can use regular painting tools, and clean-up is easy.
GlassPrimer™ glass paint can be applied to give a translucent or frosted finish, which will allow light to penetrate the window, but will block unpleasant views. It also provides a measure of privacy. It’s a great, cost-effective alternative to frosted glass.
Whether you’re looking to create a work of art, or simply cover up a dismal view, GlassPrimer™ glass paint can help. In a few short hours, you can transform the look of a space from “urban awful” to “urban chic” without completely sacrificing daylight.
