This was a long and drawn out journey. Remember me telling you about a serious mistake I made in the design process??
This is it.
In the beginning I really wanted opaque glass in my sidelight windows next to my front door. (Who likes people poking their head in to see if you are home??? I don’t want people to know it’s noon and I am still in my bathrobe!!!)
So I ordered the glass in what was called “Cross Reed” privacy glass. I saw a 2”x2” square sample of the privacy glass and even though I wasn’t sure what it would look like, I thought it would be a fun option.
Well it comes in and SERIOUSLY it looked like 80’s DISCO/TECHNO glass next to my Tuscan front door.
I was horrified, what did I do???
I played around with the idea of buying films to stick on the window but it just didn’t seem right, it seemed so flat and my door was so full of dimension. Next I thought about adding iron – here were my mock ups.
Tutor style diamond grids? (just used Photoshop)
Super organic and swirly?
Fortunately, the guys were nice and even started helping me lay out designs on the dirty concrete floor!
After I met with them I called up the guy who did the iron interior window and got a price. Remember, these were 12” x 60” – a pretty decent size custom order….
They came back at $130.00 each and that was also having them professionally powder coated (which makes them totally weather proof, no paint chipping on those babies!)
I was HAPPY. For $260.00 I had a better look than I had ever imagined. The outside hasn’t been painted yet but the trim will be a VERY dark brown color.
Here is a picture from the inside looking out.
And for those that remember my crazy post about spray painting my new entry lights, here they are up and glowing….OK not glowing yet, maybe they aren’t hooked up, I tried to find the switch but nothing turned them on……still figuring this all out I guess!
Update! Be sure and check out the FINAL house pictures!
Have a great day you guys!!!
