I know you can get some at Menards. I got a big piece of it like 5ft x 5ft for a window. I had to get that made somewhere. Cost me $112

if they dont have frosted, you can frost it with high grit sand paper. I seen it on Unique whips

A light bead blast will frost it as well, but sand paper is probably safer.

Lowe's you can buy the sheet and they cut it for free....you take home the scraps too. at depot you have to cut it yourself at home
