Bubble Wrap "Stained Glass" Windows

Pin it button big

Spotted over at ReadyMade, this DIY project arose out of a move. The resident had just moved into a new home and had lots of bubble wrap around from unpacking. One thing they didn't have, though, were curtains...

So, voila, this ReadyMade writer afixed (temporarily) bubble wrap to their windows. The texture provided privacy while still allowing light through the glass. We think the effect is a bit like glass bottle bottoms. While we don't see this as a permanent window treatment, it is an interesting reuse of materials.
