You Can Make Your Windows Look Like Elegant Stained Glass With This Secret Ingredient

Jessica is a writer who lives in Queens, NY. She spends most of her time listening to One Direction, watching TV, and hanging out with her one-eyed cat, Rigby.

When Dorrie from Simple Southern Charm decided to give her glass office door a new look, she knew it'd be a struggle to keep it cheap. She wanted a chic stained-glass look, but even the simplest of effects can cause a huge dent in your budget.

Then she heard about a product that changed everything: Gallery Glass. The glue-like substance was perfect for adding a dreamy filter to the windows. You'll want to rush out and buy a few bottles for your home when you see the result.

The original glass:

She used two large bottles of clear Gallery Glass and one smaller bottle.

She also used self-adhesive leading and liquid leading to add details.

At first she tried a method with a paintbrush...

But discovered using her hands like finger painting worked much better.

Be sure to apply the Gallery Glass super generously for a water-like effect.

Once it was dry, she added the self-adhesive leading details.

She also dabbed a small bead of liquid leading at the angles for a more authentic look.

The gorgeous result!

Dorrie used it just on one side, the one not facing the office. She wanted guests to be able to feel the awesome effect for themselves when they stopped by for a visit. She also tested out using Windex to clean it, but recommends using just warm water to wipe away any smudges.
