Instead of using a plain door, it may be of artistic interest to make a door with color and design. A glass mosaic is a good choice to go with and another wonderful do-it-yourself project. To make it, break colored glass bottles, usually those from drinks, and mix them with a sand & water combination inside a massive bucket. Consider these three colors to create the mosaic with: green, blue, and white.
The first step is to get a glass door; it can be bought for cheap off Craigslist. Make sure the door is the right size and has a glass panel. Next, create or buy tumbled glass.
Secondly, this is where the mixing takes place. Next, comes making the mosaic. Outline the pattern that is desired on the back of the door with a marker.
Thirdly, take the pieces and begin gluing them together while fitting within the outline. Considering how complex the design is, it will take a few hours to get done.
After finishing it, let the door dry a whole night before lifting the door upwards. For the glue that seeps behind the glass, it usually lasts a week before it clears up.
After a whole day, the door can be installed safely. Place it on the sliding door hinges (have it pre-installed) and stick it in place. Just like that, a beautiful mosaic siding door is there in the home. Now, go on and repeat the process with other doors and using different designs.
