The leaves have been BEAUTIFUL in the Ozarks. The vibrant yellows, reds, and oranges are amazing this time of year. They don't last long but I try to enjoy it while it lasts. The changing of the leaves also is a reminder that the colder weather is coming. We have an old house so this year we decided to get our house ready. One way is insulating our bay window for the winter.
This big bad boy is a single paned window that can let in cold air. Not this year. We decided to line our windows with this:
Have you ever wondered if this will work? Well, we decided to try it. Here is the film outside the packet:
The hubs lined the window with this double-sided tape.

You take the paper off the double side and then you attach the film. I was skeptical at this point. It was wrinkled and I was worried it would hinder my view out my window. I need to see out my windows. (by the way…look at our neighbors beautiful orange tree in the above pic. Love it!)
You grab a hair dryer and shrink the wrinkles
This is how it turned out. Amazing!
This is supposed to insulate your windows and help keep a drafty house warmer. This means less electricity in the winter and more warmth. Our neighbor watched us doing this from across the street and came over to ask about it. He couldn't even tell that we had put it on there! You can't open these windows anymore. You never could open the middle one, only the sides. We never open the side ones in the winter. Really, it's a rare occasion that we do in the summer as well. Never-the-less…if we wanted to take them down we could do so anytime.
I hope this helps you keep your house warm this winter. We got our packet at Lowes.
Have a great weekend! Thanks for reading,
