Hi!  Thank you for reading ths and hopefully having an input as to what I can do with this glass I have.
We had an old wood coffee table with 2 glass top panels.  The wood of the table broke (the legs) and we tossed that out.  Now we have the 2 glass panels, about 18" x 18" I would hate to toss this cause it's nice glass and I see some kind of potintal with it, but am at a compleate loss!  If you would like to see photos, please just ask and I will upload some!

You can take old broken colored glass, stained glass, or sea glass and make a mosaic panel. Or you could use glass paints and paint on the glass. Or you could make a collage on it. The possibilities are endless!

CrazyEye is correct, the possibilities are endless. Depends on your supplies and where your interests are. Etching, mosaic, painting, using it for old pictures, whatever.

A good place to start is by look through the completed projects here on the glass boards, and see if anything catches your eye. Smiley

if it fits  in your oven (or not) try enamel paints. They are in with the bottles acrylics and made to paint on glass. You could combine this with etching to create a wild look! (etched on one side in a pattern, painted on the other.. very cool) Then create a wood base for it to rest in, or have it professionally framed.
