Fabulous Faux Frosted Glass

{How’s that for alliteration?}

Do you ever just walk into a room and notice things that you never noticed before, but have been there all along?  This happened to me when I got back from visiting my Mom for Easter.  I walked into our Master bathroom and noticed for the first time, that I could see everything inside this cabinet here.

Aw…gee, would you like to borrow some dental floss, or maybe a feminine hygiene product?   Perhaps you’d rather have a Q-tip?

This cabinet is the only storage we have in this bathroom, so all of this non-displayable stuff has to go here.  And since we only have two bathrooms, when we entertain, someone invariably ends up here in our master bathroom.  (No doubt, checking out what brand of dental floss we prefer.)

I thought about lining the glass with fabric, but then I remembered that Rust-oleum makes  Frosted Glass spray paint .   Bingo!

I sketched up and then cut out some leaves and vines.

I arranged them in a pattern I liked and using spray adhesive, affixed them to the back side of the glass door.

Then I sprayed on two coats of the Frosted Glass paint.

Make sure you have a friend nearby to help you watch the paint dry.  In only a few minutes, it’s dry and you can peel the design off.

Admire how pretty it is when the sun shines through the glass.

I love how it turned out.  I’ve got to say that this was one of the easiest, quickest , most satisfying projects I’ve done in a while.

I replaced the wood pulls with some brushed nickel ones we had leftover from our kitchen remodel.  I also reversed the way the door was hinged.  (I just love these IKEA products.  They are so well designed.)  Now you’ll just have to wonder what brand of dental floss we buy!I love how fast and easy this was, and so pretty too!

Is there anything in your bathroom that you’d like to hide?

  1. What a great idea! I want to get rid of the medicine cabinet in my bathroom and have two other cabinets with plain glass in the doors. I wanted to use them for typical medicine cabinet stuff but didn't like the idea of everyone seeing all that. I had no idea they made frosted glass spray. I need to spend MORE time in Lowe's!

  2. That looks fantastic! I have doors that lead into our playroom/office that are glass. This would be a great way to "hide away" the mess that takes over that space so quickly!

  3. ha! I've been wanting to do that in my master bathroom for a while. I have the exact same problem! Thankfully no one ever uses that bathroom but me, but it still looks awful. I'll definitely get to it now! Thanks for the push in the right direction!

  4. Carolyn, I love the way this turned out…LOVE IKEA! Your cabinet looks very 'expensive.' 🙂 My mom always uses that as a compliment and it makes me smile! I featured you on my recent blog post (highlighting my favorite blogs!) Just thought you'd want to know! Best wishes- Holly (yourstrulyh@blogspot.com)

  5. Wow, it looks great, and so easy. I had no idea they made frosted glass spray paint- that makes me want to go find something to frost right now. Love it!

  6. Can I just tell you how HAPPY you have made me? I had no idea there was such a fabulous invention as frosted glass spray paint! I think I might have squealed when I saw this. And it's the very first post I've ever read of yours. It was meant to be! ha ha I am totally gonna check out what other cool things you have on this here blog! 🙂

  7. You know what, you're awesome! LOL Really! I have a multi-pane back door. It stays smudged because I have doggies and kitties who love to press their noses to the glass and look out. And I hate there is no privacy at the door. A few weeks ago, while at Home Depot, over in the window blind area, I found this nifty patterned static cling window cover that looked like frosted glass. I splurged and bought the package for 19.99. Got home, all excited, used Windex to clean the door glass, opened the package to put it on. Imagine my disappointment and disgust to see that there was only enough to cover half of the door!! I was so mad, I just packaged it back up and returned it for a refund! I thought there had to be a better way! You just gave me one! Thanks! How much was the spray, by the way?

  9. Saw you on Remodelaholics Anonymous. I love this. I've used window cling frosted glass and you could probably cut out designs on that too but it's such a pain to put up. This is probably easier and it looks SO good.

  10. WOW! How beautiful!

    Thanks for joining Get Your Craft on Thursday. Please join me next week for another great party.

  11. I love that! I want to do that in my bathroom! If you mess up, can you scrape it off? I bought some of that spraypaint but have been too chicken to do it yet…

  12. Carolyn,
    I love this! I haven't tried it either..but eye it every time I go to the craft store. Your blog header is awesome by the way…when I see depression glass, cute shoes, and a miter box together I get a little giddy.
    Thanks for coming to the party at Lucky Star Lane:)

  13. This is GREAT! I just bought an old cabinet and am going to convert it to a cabinet for my wine glasses, etc., but {among other things) want to frost the glass…yours looks great and make me want to get moving on mine a little quicker.

  14. SO glad I stumbled across your blog, especially this post!!! I've been wondering what the heck to do with a huge window in our masterbath. I tried that temporary clingy glass "froster" and it fell off in minutes. Will definitely check this stuff out — and maybe a stencil or two. Genius! 🙂

  15. Since it's clearly visible in your first two pictures, I'm going with Crest Glide brand dental floss.

  16. Carolyn,
    I'm featuring this at Get Your Craft on Thursday party this week! If you would like to stop over and grab my I was featured button please do so!

  17. Ha! So much better. Everyone knows a girl has tampons and pads in their bathroom, but they don't need to be on display, right? 🙂 This cabinet looks awesome with the frosted glass and the leaf pattern.

  18. This is beautiful!
    I hope it's okay that I featured it as an inspiration on my blog, More! Than Scrap.
    Thanks so much for sharing your creations 🙂

  19. I bookmarked this when you first shared it. I hope you don't mind that I featured it today.

    I just moved into a 1930's home that needs a TON of work. I need a cabinet just like this for the master bath (if I can find one at the thrift store or Kmart 😉 The frosted glass is just perfect – but your leaves make it!
