A Stained Glass Wish Comes True


I first met Shirley at the Fall Colorado Home Show in September. She stopped in our Scottish Stained Glass house to admire our beautiful windows and to visit. At that time she shared with me that she has always wanted to have some stained glass in her home but thought that it would be out of her price range. Custom Bathroom Stained GlassShirley is a wonderful lady and has always gone “without” giving all of her time, energy and money to a daughter with many disabilities. During our visit at the home show and she mentioned a window she has going down to her basement and from her dining room you could view the house next door. Shirley always has wanted to have stained glass put in this window and in her home. I suggested a free in home consultation and that I would come up with a design that she would both love and be able to afford.

Stained Glass Colors

We met a week after the show and she showed me the window in question. Shirley also shared with me how much she loves color, especially the color orange. We looked at all the different designs, bevels and glass choices. Shirley chose a very simple diamond design with a border. The most fun was going through all the many colors and textures of glass for her design. We selected a very heavy texture for the main glass to hide the view of her neighbor’s home and used a very different texture of glass with multiple colors for her border as well as her main diamond piece. Of course there was her favorite color orange within the glass!

I went to visit with Shirley again after her stained glass window was installed and she is so thrilled with her new stained glass. She wanted me to mention that she has waited 26 years to finally have some stained glass in her home!
