Cabinet Glass: Check!

And one more thing gets crossed off the list.

The good people at Cline Glass got us setup with some "seedy" glass for our new cabinets. They have literally hundreds of types of glass to choose from. I just gave them my measurements and they had the cut pieces ready by the end of the day. They also happen to be located directly across the street from Rejuvenation House Parts. Ya' can't beat that!

The cabinets came "prepped for glass", meaning the doors were rabbeted for the glass and retaining clips were provided. The retaining clips didn't quite touch the glass that I chose (thicker glass would have been fine), so to keep the glass from rattling I ran a bead of clear silicone around the perimeter before securing with the clips.

  1. We did the same thing with our kitchen cabinets (having them "prepped for glass" vs. buying the glass that came with the cabinets - because it was ugly and overpriced!) We even got our glass from Cline Glass! Small world/town.

    Your kitchen looks soooo great! Some one of these days, we will need to work up the motivation to finish our kitchen - it looks so modern without the tile up on the backsplashes! Tile makes such a difference.

  2. Beautiful cabinets! Our front door and all the windows in the house are 91+ years old and Ive noticed they dont have as much of a "seed" effect as what if for sale in glass stores. They however have a definite wave to the glass which looks beautiful and interesting when sunlight shines through and the reflection sprays out across the living room.

  3. I was totally going to stop into Cline on my last trip to Rejuvenation, but got distracted by hunger. :) How much did you pay per piece? I'd love to know what to budget. Do they only sell raw pieces of glass? I've been pricing out leaded glass inserts, but I only saw stained glass displays when walking past.

  4. I can't remember exactly what I paid, but it was between $35-$70 for 3 pieces, including the cut fee. You can spend way more than that if you want expensive glass.

    They cater to the glass artist, so you'll mostly find raw glass and supplies.
