Finally finished this house number project today. It's not perfect or symmetrical, but I'm pleased with it all the same. Now if it would just stop raining, maybe I could hang it out front, and get a better picture.
Completed Project:


Some WIP progress pictures:










In this mosaic I used glass rods, brass, stained glass and black grout.

You should be very pleased with it!  It's awesome.  I love the different colors of glass that you used, and the black grout.  So pretty.  It'll really add something to the front of your home, I'm sure.  Smiley

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

It's beautiful!  Just beautiful!  The WIP photos are good, too -- I'm always amazed to see glass projects and how they're done.  Rocks. Cool

I love it!

I was looking at ridiculously expensive - and not half as nice - house numbers today, and this is a great idea.
Is the frame just a picture frame or a special frame?

I think that looks so cool!  Your house will be the most stylish (and easy to find) on the block!  I hate when you can't see the number, or when its just those ugly basic ones.  What a great idea & lovely execution!
