Faux.......

So our major trip for the summer is over and the kids start school in less than 2 weeks.  I am in the middle of a major hutch redo for my brother in law and his new bride. I have kinda run into a little problem and I am trying to figure that out.  So in the mean time I was going nuts without a project and reading way to many books.  I needed something to do big time!!  I have a whole bunch of antique windows that I have collected and they are just sitting around collecting all sorts of dust.  When I had the idea of turning one into a faux stained glass window.  I had this idea that I was going to use beach glass from the dollar store to do it.  Alas there was now beach glass at the dollar store so I picked up 4 bags of the round pebblish looking ones.  As I was driving home from the store I started thinking about it and wondering if I should try something else.  So after looking at a whole bunch of ideas now I can't decide what I want to do.  I always like feedback and opinions so I thought I would throw this up here.  I have at least narrowed down my ideas, I think....  Here are a few things I was thinking about doing.  Please feel free to leave a comment and tell me what you think.  I am pretty sure the window has lead paint on it so I will be dawning a mask and gloves and giving them a sanding on Monday and then I can't wait to get started.


Here was kinda the original idea, but I was thinking of doing some sort of pattern

But then as I looked at a few other ideas I kinda liked some of these.
