Pride Goeth before a fall?
Hopefully it wasn't my pride that caused this panel to fall, but I did love it!
We thought this was in place pretty well. We had to squeeze it in, and thought it was tight enough to just stay up without anything else holding it. Lesson learned. This was the first of 2 panels of similar design which I made, and are in opposite sides of our dining and living rooms. The other is currently being held up by silly putty, and we may pick up some moulding today...
I had just come into the kitchen from the garage, and the kids and Kipp were already in the kitchen when we all heard a whump and some glass tinkling. I was trying to figure out what ornaments we could have that were over there, and realized that there weren't any. It took Kipp a few seconds also, and then we all ran over to look. Kyler saw it first. He said, "Well Mom, at least it's not your favorite one!" (I do like the second one I made a little better). The bad news about our new carpet is it's really thick and really holds glass shards well! My panel went from about 20 pieces to 120 pieces, and we picked up what we could and vacuumed the rest. The good news is I now have a new window to fill!
