Home Improvement: Stained Glass Window Project

My husband and I picked up three old stained glass windows at The Tobacco Barn on our honeymoon a few weeks ago.

I wanted a unique way to hang them in our sun room.

And thankfully my husband is good at taking my ideas and making them happen.

This weekend we finally finished the project.

Here is what we did.

1

Super cheap hardware from Home Depot, 50 cents per pack plus 14 cents for the over-sized washers.

2

Toggle bolts, clothesline hooks and rings, and over-sized washers.

3

Spray painted hardware.

3a

Hardware all assembled.

We laid the windows out on craft paper to determine the layout.

Then Joe traced around the windows and taped the kraft paper to the wall for easy placement.

He is a smart one:)

The dog continued to beg throughout the process. He does not like when the attention is shifted away from him. Spoiled.

Pre-drilled the holes for the rings.

This is his arm, not mine. I don’t have hairy arms, in case you were wondering.

Making sure the hooks are level. He said, “Hmmm close enough.”

Yay, it worked.

I love that we purchased the windows on our honeymoon.

And every time I look at them it will remind me of our trip.

Yay for a handy husband.

Update: I shifted the room around.
