Where to get frosted glass window film?

Any idea where to get the adhesive film that makes your windows look frosted? I really like the look of ADA "Mist" glass and wanted to try to make a ghetto-fabulous version of it. Has anyone else tried this?

Home Depot, by the blinds and shades. We used a french door in our bathroom because we wanted some natural light to pass through, but of course needed privacy since it's a bathroom - worked great. They also have a lot of other patterns like bubble-glass, satin-glass, and various colored tints.

Do you have leftover film to sell? I didn't want to buy a whole roll since I only need a piece 24" by 14".
