My husband and I live in a very old log cabin built in 1863. My husband and I have renovated and restored this log cabin back to its original style. The log cabin portion of the house is the living room and room where we keep a pool table.
There are several additions that have been added to the main log cabin section of the house. One addition that was added on is the dining room which is located between several other additions and the cabin living room.
This room was extremely dark and consisted of two doorway entrances. These entrances were the only natural light to enter the room. To brighten up the dining room so it would not be as dark, we opened up the doorways to double their size. We did all the renovating work ourselves and had to make sure there was support to double the openings in the doorways.
We then took one wall that was adjacent to a room with a window and we opened up a vertical rectangle in the drywall and wall. The rectangle was cut completely out, almost window like, so there was an opening completely through the wall.
We placed a piece of glass with an etching on it inside the rectangle and framed it in. On the glass we had etched a picture of a wizard that matched a tattoo my husband has. Now the light comes through the glass and makes the room much brighter. The beautiful etched glass is also a great conversation piece.
