If you've ever been in a church on a sunny day when the rays illuminate the bright colors of a stained glass window, you know the effect the vibrant colored glass can have on an interior space. How much would you pay to have that very effect inside your own home? How about the price of a tank of gas?
Stained glass was originally used in churches to tell the stories of the bible to parishioners who could not read. These vivid pictures were created in vibrant colors by adding chemicals during the glass-making process. The beautiful effect of colored light pouring through the windows appears to have been an unintentional effect. But what an effect!
While there are still craftsmen who painstakingly create the colored glass the way it's been done for hundreds of years, technology has stepped in to make the product more affordable, accessible and easier to work with. Stained Glass Applique Window Film now makes it possible to bring the stained glass look into any home, no matter what the design budget may be. It can be applied without any special skills, and will beautify the interior light and exterior appearance of your home for years to come.
The applique window film comes in a [http://www.interiorplace.com/alden-blue-peel-and-stick-stained-glass-applique/]variety of designs, shapes and colors. It comes in sheets large enough to cover entire windows, and it comes in the shape of flowers, birds or butterflies, or ornamental borders, to beautify any window space. It also comes in a variety of textures and opaqueness, so you can determine how much sunlight comes through, and how transparent the glass will remain after the film has been applied.
Applique Window Film is a secret weapon for any DIY decorator. It can bring a million dollar look to any space, all for just a few dollars expense and a few minutes labor.
To apply, simply peel off the back layer of the film and apply to a cleaned, wet window. The film floats on the wetness of the window, allowing you to position it exactly where you want it.
