Anyone ever tried..

Post by KellyM on Fri Apr 23, 2010 1:36 pm

gallery glass? I have a window in my bedroom that faces the neighbors ...the houses are close together enough on that side that I cannot ever have the shade/curtains up in that window. I thought it would be a cool idea to have a stained glass look in that window..My sister told me about gallery glass..but I have looked on amazon and most people who have tried it, don't leave very good reviews about it. They say it's hard to work with, the stuff doesnt come out of the tubes easily, etc.. There was a really pretty pattern that I liked, but if this stuff is extremely hard to work with then I don't know if I want the headache.

I found a window cling type thing too, but didn't know what these actually look like on, are they cheesy looking..do they stay on well, etc?

anyone have any insight on this?

How big is the window, Kelly? I saw some cool stained glass items on Overstock.com that hang from 2 chains and would work great in front of a window. Like this: http://tiffanylamp.biz/store/index.php/tiffany-style-stained-glass-window-panel-vw208.html

I have never even heard of Gallery Glass or the clings, but I think the clings look classier than the Gallery Glass.

After all the stained glass I've made I have to admit to being a glass snob Embarassed I'd go with something more like what Lori suggested.

I have used Gallery Glass, and it sucks. Walmart has some stuff that works well, as does Hobby Lobby....not sure of the brand.


I used to have a cling on my french doors in the old house, they did not have the blinds inside, and I hate curtains on doors. It worked well, and looked great. Alot of people thought it was stained glass.

I got mine here
