Faux stained glass was the makeover for the hutch I painted, antiqued and glazed several months ago. I finally got the very old vintage mirror on the hutch top finished using a faux stained glass process. This was so much fun, but time consuming to get the details straight and balanced across the mirror.

First, I purchased a few stain glassed designs to get my pattern created and faux leading to tie the design together. Next, I worked with my pieces to come up with a pleasing and balanced design before beginning. Once the design layout was finished I began to add the elements to the mirror. This is when you find out that nothing is straight on a furniture piece. LOL So with a little tweaking here and there, I finally got everything to line up and even. The colors reflect those around the room. The good news is, these faux stained glass designs can be removed later is colors or tastes change. I am happy the way it all turned out and after displaying a little Autumn decor, the stained glass was just what this vintage hutch needed.

What do you think? This was a lot of fun to create. I have worked with gallery glass before and find it very rewarding for an instant stained glass effect. It is a procedure that also works well on old vintage windows, wall mirrors, side lights around entry doors and glass vases and trays.

Thank you for stopping by. I always love your visits. As a reminder, we have a lot of fun events going on this month so please check my sidebar at the top for links to giveaways, parties and contests.
Till next time, I hope you are looking towards Autumn days. Blessings always,
