To Transformed Your Glass Panels In Your Bathroom Storage Cabinet To Stained Glass You Will Need:
Peel and stick lead
Stained Glass Paint
To start this craft project you need to decide on a pattern. Your stained glass pattern will determine what stained glass paint colors you need to buy.
Measure the clear glass in the bathroom storage cabinets you are going to transform.
Mark this space out on a piece of drawing paper and sketch out your design. If you have markers I suggest coloring in areas the colors you would like them to be. The more specific you are in the planning the less room for mistakes.
Once you have established your stained glass design you need to transfer it to your glass panels. I like to tape the sketch to the inside of the bathroom storage cabinet so that it shows through the front of the glass panels. You can fill in just like a coloring book!
Painting the stained glass is the next step. Use a natural bristle artist paintbrush to fill in your colors. Work up to the edges in each block of color. You will be covering the rough edges with peel and stick lead, so you don’t have to make them absolutely perfect.
Once your stained glass is completely painted you need to let it dry complete. While your paint is drying your can work on your peel and stick lead.
Remove the sketch from the back of the bathroom storage cabinet and use this to cut out your peel and stick lead.
This is a great way to make your stained glass look built in like it was always part of your bathroom storage cabinet.
Once you lead is cut you can install it. Carefully apply your peel and stick lead over all of the edges, just like real stained glass.
-You can always buy used or new bathroom storage cabinets and hang them in your bathroom. This will allow you to control more of the look. I often come across great bathroom cabinets in need of a little TLC at the flea market. They often get overlook because of the plain and inexpensive looking glass in them.
