Leaded Glass from Old Windows

Earlier this year my husband and in finished making 10 leaded glass panels for our 1912 Craftsman home. There were some existing panels when we bought the house, but about half of them were broken, so we decided to make a slightly fancier, but still period design.

The best part, I think, is that but for the leading and the beveled glass squares, they were made from old wavy glass windows!

This was our first leaded glass project and we're really happy with how they turned out. And now we're looking around the house trying to figure out what else we can make. =)

This turned out Beautiful.The old wavy glass is so cool. I have not learned how to do this yet but I did buy out a stained glass artist of all his tools so some day when I get the courage I am going to give it a try. He had lots of bevels and maybe I should just try foiling a few and putting them together to see how it goes. AFTER I finish project 190473-22 on my list of mosaics.

You did a beautiful job! I have the exact same china cabinet in my dining room , but only one set. All the woodwork matches ,too . This house was made in 1920 ,and it's all original . Having these old doors show such character in a house . I love yours !!

Your house is beautiful! I grew up in Southwest Portland then Hillsboro. If I could ever be coaxed away from sunny California, it would be for a bungalow in Southeast Portland. Such a beautiful area. You've done an amazing job on your home and your glass project looks like a professional did it for you. Great job!
