I have lived in my home now for about 11 months now and I am finally getting to finishing this project. I’m so happy to be sharing the before and after for this tutorial on how to apply window film in my home office. P.S… This is a rental friendly project!

First a little back story on my office space. The entrance to my home office used to be the exit to the back yard behind the house. The space I work out of is a newer addition. I love it, but I have felt like I have been in a fish tank. With windows on 3 of my 4 walls.

As a renter, I wanted to find a solution that would help me add privacy without damaging the windows. I am super grateful that the solution came quickly with just a google search. I ended up finding all kinds of window films. I went down a rabbit hole of a search to find what I will share with you today! I am even more excited that I found it on Amazon and no they did not sponsor this post.

Check out the BEFORE… as in before I started using the window film I chose. See how anyone could just poke their head up against my window to see what I was working on? Isn’t my beagle Gertie cute? LOL

When I was installing the door window film, I went LIVE on Instagram to share the process. When I was finished I went to download the video and there was a glitch in the app and I was prevented from saving it. I was super bummed because I had planned on sharing this tutorial with you all much sooner than I did.

With that being said, I finally got around to filming, editing, and sharing how to apply window film home office makeover. I hope you like it.
