Maison Stencils. Because they custom size, I asked them to make me one twice as big as the size that is offered.
But it turned out great. We debated whether to stencil the glass before sandwiching it into the frame or after. We weighed the pros and cons and finally decided it was a toss up. The toss came up after so I painted both sides of the transom with primer and two coats of paint after the glass was installed. Did I mention that one side of the transom is white and the other side cream? Although my brother marked the top as L and R, I somehow ignored that and painted layer after layer. Yes, my 50/50 chance of getting it right by accident failed. I had put the colors on the wrong sides. But rather than have me redo it, Dan shaved a little off the edges and made it fit. Whew!
Pictures? PICTURES! For future reference: As the stress level rises the photography diminishes.
I was using spray for this stencil....not my usual method but I planned to frost the glass to make my stencil.
This is a small room so photographing it is a bit of a challenge. But then, why should that be any different than the rest of this project. Challenges abound in a remodel of a 110 year old home.
I got so caught up in the process that I forgot about taking pictures. The two parts above were once one. Dan took them apart, added a double ended screw and attached it to the baseboard.
