Instead of putting curtains in my bothroom windows I made stained glass pieces. Our house has two bathrooms, one with two windows, so I made three pieces total.

In the first bathroom the window was a bit large. I made a light house scene.



In this one you can see that the window is actually in the shower.


In the other bathroom I did an underwater theme.


Here are a couple of close ups.



These were an interesting alternative to traditional window treatments.

 Shocked these are great! Did you have space ( and time ) to make these at home, or took a class? I love your fishies & kelp- very cute!

I took a beginner class offered by the city and then continued on my own.  I have a laundry room with counter top that was supposed to be my sewing area but is now my glass work room.  The two fish pieces were originally one large piece for the other bathroom.  While I had it in position temporarily I stepped back to see how it looked and it crashed down into the tub.  I salvaged it by taking it apart and using the unbroken pieces for the two smaller windows.

They are both stunning!  Shocked I can't show my mom, she'd drive down there and steal 'em! (I think I will show her, she'll be oh so jealous!) The red fish one is my favorite!

Here is a picture of her "studio"; in most houses this would be the mud room. It's nothing fancy; basically just a counter top and some shelves.

Thank you all for your kind comments. The lighthouse one was especially important. Now the creepy neighbor kid can't see in when we shower!
