And my first post on this board! 

This is my first glass project on my own - a panel to sit inside our old fuse box in the hallway.  When we moved in there was a piece of cardboard painted white in there and all the old shattered glass behind it.



I was terrified I was going to make it too large so I ended up with pretty large holes...I guess I got a little grinder happy  Tongue
It looks much better in person and not quite so lumpy...



Thanks for letting me share!

 Shocked It's really really pretty!
But what is a 'fuse box'? (English is not my mother tongue) Is there a chance to see a bit more of your hallway Tongue?

We all make mistakes, and then when you've made enough, they call it experience.

A fuse box is the breaker box or the little box that serves as the "electrical hub" in your house. 

My house is 102 years old and this is the original box to the house.  As you can see there are like 4 fuses  Tongue  They actually still work but we have another big one in the kitchen.  I love that it is the kind with the glass fuses  Smiley  You can also see why I really needed something decorative in front of it since it is not that pretty!


And here are the hallway shots:

Looking into the kitchen you can see the glass and box at the end on the right side ( please excuse the mess - I don't clean on the weekend!):


And looking towards the front door:




Turned out great! The colors, and design go with your place perfectly. Smiley

Thanks HSG - I realized today, that maybe I am a little obsessed with circles  Roll Eyes
