'The Pub' - Installation Day!

becky_iaAugust 11, 2008

Well, the day finally arrived! We installed the stained glass panel at the Pub Restaurant & Bar yesterday morning at 7:30 a.m. (before the Sunday brunch crowd arrived). Can't express the relief and satisfaction felt! I feel like I could write a book from this experience! I learned so much from start to finish.

Special thanks for all the help from:

Tillie-for the pattern design

Beckey from Dragonshire Glass-for the stained glass choices

Julie-Woodland Windows-lead purchase on a Sunday morning!

Rich-my husband for all his help with fitting & cutting the lead came and anytime there was the slightest design problem!

Jim-the master carpenter who designed the light box and did the installation.

And all of you who encouraged me with kind words!

But anyway, here are the promised pictures...Becky
