Our three glass panels were installed this week!
Now we can finally start using the shower in our master bathroom.
But first I had to seal the grout.
It turned out to be a very simple job with this little brush/bottle thingy I picked up at Rona.
Ready for use!
We had our glass guys install a towel rail right in the glass since I've been having a hard time finding a place for one anywhere else.
The only other spot was that far wall in the shower. Not exactly practical.
The other 2 glass panels were an idea I came up with for the entrance way.
This was my problem in the front hall.
The stairs going to the side door and basement needed to be enclosed in some way-- either railings or walls. But I wasn't sure which way to go. I didn't love that anyone standing at the front door could see straight through to our main living space and backyard, but neither did I like the idea of closing it all off with walls.
Railings seemed a bit too busy for this space anyway.
So I decided to get two frosted glass panels made.
They are simple and modern, let light shine through, and give us some privacy at the front door.
They also show the zig-zag of the stairs behind them which I really like.
This is the view from the front door.
I really like how these turned out.
And now we have the perfect spot for that giant piece of driftwood that Paul hauled back from the cottage.
I think this rustic piece of nature looks just perfect next to the sleek, frosted panel of glass.
And we do actually use it as a coat rack!
Now we just need a slightly smaller bench to replace that big wicker one.
