Here’s a great idea to hide unwanted messiness in any cabinet with glass doors.

Windo film

I’m using Gila Window Film in bronze to coordinate with the brown tone of a media unit that I re-purposed into more of a display area for my client. The former home of media components is now used for storage, and we wanted to mask that. Here’s the before photo:

A frosted window film would work great, too! See what’s available in your local hardware store or home improvement center.

For about $25 for both the film and the application kit, it gives a whole new look to the cabinet, and there’s plenty of leftover supplies to work on other pieces.

My client is really happy with the new display area and is using the now-opaque glass doors for more storage. This was an easy process and a great way to re-purpose a display cabinet.
