Elegant Home Accents

Antique cut crystal plates steal center stage for these eye catching custom designed kitchen cabinet door inserts. This series of doors features two sizes of matching ornate plates. Fabrication took extra care, as required by any three dimensional add-in to a stained glass project. This coupled with exacting geometry gave this project its challenges! These breathtaking results are sure to be a family treasure! Design Idea: This elegant design could also be executed using a collection of mismatched glass plates in various sizes or colors for a more casual boho or eclectic feel! A great way to use those incomplete sets of heirloom plates you can’t quite bear to part with because they are just too pretty! Bring your custom design idea to us a Gallery’s Choice and see how easy it can be to create a cherished addition to your home’s decor!
