What a nifty idea! Thermostat covers are rather ugly.

Oh that's fabulous! Only YOU! But it's brilliant! I hate the look of those stupid (but necessary) things.

Brilliant! Now let's convince everyone to use beautiful thermo covers so the world can be free of dull, mediocre, standardized engineering. : D

Wowowow! I gotta get me one of those. :) I love to see how people "pretty up" the functional stuff around them. I think the Victorians had it right: Why shouldn't everyday stuff be fun AND beautiful?

Victoria said...

Robynn's Ravings said...

Gosh, that's gorgeous! Only a true artist thinks so creatively as to come up with art for a thermostat cover. Ingenious!

That is soooo cool.
I am seeing a whole new market!
Nice, Mark.

Now that's a class act...who woulda thought...

T.Allen-Mercado said...

OK, now this is all sorts of wonderful! I absolutely love the idea.

Stain glass is a favorite of mine but I never would have thought of putting it over a thermostat...ingenious!

Country Girl said...

That's beautiful. Looks wonderful like this!

Carla said...

Beautiful work, Mark. I love it!!! Lucky you, Charmaine, to have your thermostat so creatively covered.

High Desert Diva said...

Sadly, it isn't mine. Although I do believe I need something similar!

This was a commissioned piece....

Nice, who would have thought to cover the thermostat...we dont have them here on display anyway..it's the same temperature most of the time ;p

Cecile/DreamCreateRepeat said...

If the thermostat is going to be on the wall in the middle of everyone's view, why shouldn't it be art?! Very clever....

Maybe this commission will create a market!

Jill said...

That is beautiful!

Hey Harriet said...

One of my brothers-in-law works on stained glass, too and the result is superb. We also have one of his pieces hanging from our kitchen window and when the sun hits it the effect is magical. I love this design, too. Many thanks.
