Contemporary, Chic Living Room with a Dramatic Flair

Hosts Andrika Lawren and Emmanuel Belliveau combine a couple's passions to redesign their living room.

Hanging Stained Glass Windows

After finding beautiful stained-glass windows behind the couch, Belliveau uses them to create a visual barrier between the two rooms. To simulate the look, drill a hole two inches from each edge in the top of each frame and attach eye screws. Cut two pieces of cable per window to the desired length. Cut a piece of MDF to the necessary length after deciding the spacing between the windows, and then drill corresponding holes in the MDF. Secure eye screws to the MDF holes and use cable crimps to hold the cables in place (be sure they're tight). Attach the board to a ceiling joist with anchors and 2-1/2-inch screws. Use a level to be sure the windows hang straight. Attach the bottom end of the cables to the window eye screws as above after checking for level.
