Parlor Leaded Glass Complete!!

Woohoo! All four panels of the parlor leaded glass panels are assembled. We still need to cement and clean them and more permanently install them, but we're really excited to have managed to get so much progress done on this major project in the last couple of weeks. Though, it will be nice to have time to do something else again...

While these panels may not be quite up to professional standards, we're really happy with them (for now).  And perhaps we'll someday make something more elaborate for these cabinets, but these will do for this decade.  =)

As a reminder, here is what it looked like when we bought the house two years ago. (The colonnades were added back during our remodel.) Three of these leaded glass panels had cracks and breaks in them and needed at least some repair.
Now that they're removed, we'll probably go ahead and repair these panels too. Then we're not sure what we'll do with them. Maybe we'll stick them in the attic for the next owner of this house. Or perhaps we'll sell the set. We haven't decided.

For fun, we assembled this little stick archer dude from scrap lead came. We were obviously getting a little punchy by the end. Now maybe we can spend a couple hours celebrating by goofing off for a few hours.


  1. The doors look fantastic!! And I love the archer dude...very clever!

  2. These are fabulous! I love Craftsman style houses. You are doing a great job restoring this treasure.
