Cheapie Ebay stuff lasted about 8 years in our downstairs loo, which I thought was OK. It was the type where you spray water onto the glass and it clings - rather than being self-adhesive - much less likely to get bubbles beneath it. Looked surprisingly good, was only intended as a short term quick fix!

I thought for a moment the thread was going to feature an old film with nice period detail - I've never seen "Peels of London". :)

Hmm - don't fancy their stained glass effect, but I've seen films that do a pretty good facsimile of acid etched glass, that could work.

We used purlfrost for our window films in our old place, really good stuff (was a few years ago though so usual disclaimers etc)
