The Window

Your lovely new home has a window on the first floor which overlooks a beautiful Maxfield Parish-esque lake. One day you come home to find the following note taped to the window by your wife, husband, significant other, flat mate or cat:

 

Dear (Your Name):

The window lets in too much light. Please tint it, though not all of it. Tint (on the inside) a solid square four feet high by four feet wide, leaving half the window untinted.

Love/Sincerely,
Natasha/Bob/Borris/Samantha/Mittens

The glass portion of the window, you observe, measures four feet high by four feet wide. Can you complete the request as written without buying another window?
