Stain Glass Windows in Picture Frames

Pin It
 My windows were posted on Pinterest by someone, thank you,  my boards on Pinterest HERE

Sale at The Quilt Ladies Quilt Pattern Store HERE

Thank you all for asking about the stain glass.  These are on the windows in our family room/guest room at our last home we moved from just over two years ago. I had to leave them all. Tried but they wouldn't let me take them. They probably took them down and throw them away ! !  Any way, I did three of them.

Stain Glass Windows in Picture Frames

Window One

I've taken stain glass classes and I love the idea of it, but the doing the whole hot thing, is not for me. I designed the patterns, cut the glass, and on purchased frames I laid out the pieces on the glass of the frame,  glued them all down (glass glue) and grouted them with gray grout.

Window Two

Window Three

Each frame measures 32' x 32' and they are very heavy.
They are hung with screws through the frame, so they can't fall.

The natural light comes through them all day and all are on the same light switch for night, making them glow.

AN old Door Show -N- Tell

OK, I know what you are thinking, I'm NUTS....but I really like this door !

Old wooden door made into a head board

Husband and I headed to a flea market. And, look what we found. I liked the full walnut one that said, "Boys Locker Room" on it, but he picked this one, not worth a discussion, SOLD.

All the glass is perfect, I cleaned and cleaned.
paint or not to paint, I didn't.

He had to move the hinges to the other side
They look great, old and a bit of rust. Love them.
