Pretty,,,but a little costly for such a small size
My 'Budget Bathroom Make Over' was underway,,,and my shower stall, was next up on my list of items, to redo (with as little money as possible being spent). A real make over, is going to be done in the future, so I needed something to tide me over, until then.
Unfortunately, my bathroom was also designed by a builder that must have found brass fixtures, either on sale, or being given away. It was ugly. In my attempt to mask the gold as much as possible, we changed out the brass lights, fan, and

faucets, leaving the shower stall door, as the last remaining trace, of ugly gold brass.
Painting the metal shower stall door, in a bathroom, wasn't really a great option, so we left it up. It also had clear glass, which made it stand out even more. Enter in, the decorative window film!
I carefully measured the door, and side panels to see if it would even work for this job,,,and it did! Unfortunately, this also meant that, I needed at LEAST three of the 12x83 "Sidelite" panels,,,I would also need something else, that I could cut to fit the remaining smaller panels, off to the sides. For this, I purchased the "etched glass" window film, from the same company.
The measurements that I had to work with, could not be changed, so I had to make do with what I could because of the limitations, of the width of the product. I decided that an inch off to each side would not be a deal breaker, and started to install the product to the shower glass.
***If you need to cut this product - measure everything at least three times, and then go back and double check your marks on the film, before you make your cuts - it's an expensive mistake if your not careful, (it ALMOST happened to me, because the material slid on the floor a bit, when I was marking it).
I highly suggest that you purchase the install kit as well,,,it helps to keep the product movable, while you get it into proper placement. It also comes with a small super sharp blade implement, and a neat little squeegee, to get the bubbles out, once in place.
The 'Etched Glass' film, matched the edges of this product, (the Chateau), PERFECTLY! This was important because, it was going to be edged up next to each other. This is a nice thing to know, if you also need to put this up in windows, or doors, that will need more coverage, than the 12x83 piece, will fit onto.
