So my father-in-law didn't like the standard icky florescent light covers in his kitchen.  We did some googling, found a pattern, I got some acrylic and made him something new.  I just used liquid leading and glass paints.  And here are the photos:

This is awesome!! Shocked  It totally reminds me of Frank Lloyd Wright's stained glass light fixtures.  Very creative, great job.

Oh thank you thank you.  I really like Wright, so I'll take that as a compliment. It was actually supposed to be southwesternish. He he.
