I'm keeping busy these days working on some stained glass.
Stained glass isn't exactly "thrifty" unless you do it yourself and even that, isn't exactly cheap. It's a hobby I took up a long time ago and eventually turned it into a small at- home business. Thought you may like to see some pictures of some recent work.
Above is a piece that I finished a while ago for over a door in my kitchen.
The piece above is five separate panels that I placed above a french door. Not the greatest of photos. Looks much better in person. I just finished this last week.
I made five of these for my kitchen cabinets. Here is a photo of two of them. These cabinets actually had solid wood panels that I removed using a saw and router. This is a simple design that doesn't make the kitchen too busy. The frosted glass helps to hide all the items that are stored in the cabinets.
Below are four cabinets I just finished for a customer who has just put in a new kitchen. They will have lights behind them when they are finally hung.
Busy , busy................
