Raising the Sun Victoria Style [Project 7]

How else would a Victorian celebrate the Victoria Day long weekend than by raising beautiful stained glass sun rays?

Yup, my medieval bed with stained glass panels is finished!  😮

Gorgeous?  Oh yeah!  😎

Unique?  Most definitely!  😆

My vision has been made reality.  What more can I say?

It has certainly been a long project.  It started when I moved here & only had a mattress.  A simple platform turned into a four-poster bed.

Then, again simple, wood finials turned into gorgeous stained glass fence caps when I spied them at Home Depot.  Wow, my creativity took over — the time line:

Let me tell you — I was pretty exhausted by the end of this week.  Of course, it was definitely worth it!  😉

Now, hmmm, what do I want to make for my next window?  😎

Update December 2011:

While shopping for Christmas lights, I spied a relatively-short [4′ 6″] string of white icicle lights that fit perfectly behind the headboard.  I love the way the 2-, 3-, or 4-length strips hanging down highlight lower parts of the glass.  😆

Ooh, even more gorgeous at night now!
