I really wish I had taken a picture of where I found this nice haul of glass that I now have on three surfaces in my living room. I pulled it out of the garbage, loaded it into the back of my trusty but rusty van, brought it home, and wiped it down with vinegar and water solution and newspaper.
This kind of glass turns up in the garbage a lot because it was usually fabricated to be the top or protect the top of a specific piece of furniture. As soon as that furniture takes the trip, the glass doesn’t seem to fit anywhere.
The thing is that it doesn’t HAVE to cover the whole surface. Just the part on which you want to set a glass or plate. It is also nice for displaying a nice piece of handwork that you don’t want stained or getting dusty.
This tempered glass can’t be cut, but it can be etched with
any design you want. Like these windows my daughter designed and acid etched with a compound you can get at any hobby or craft store. It is just another way of customizing old glass to a new use in your home.
I hope I gave you some ideas for reusing glass in your home. Begonia
