This is Day One of the WordPress Blogging U’s course Photography 101. Okay, I’ve taken the class twice before, but what can I say? It’s fun!

Today’s assignment is to share an image showing, “What does ‘home’ mean to you?” And of course, my first thought for a meaningful photo was: My bathroom! Well, more specifically, the new backsplash I made for the sink.

I happen to have a bit of opaque stained glass laying around (okay, maybe a lot of it), which I rarely use these days as I am mostly working with translucent or transparent glass for panels meant to be displayed in windows. I decided to try making opaque glass tiles to add a “splash” of color to the bathroom. The photo above shows the results.

My home is nothing fancy, was built over 60 years ago, and for me it is a perfect place to try out new skills on whatever “improvements” I want to attempt. It’s my life-sized “arts and crafts” project, you might say. My personal playground for pretending to be a plumber or a carpenter, or sometimes a purple unicorn. Don’t judge.

So what’s in the works for my next home project? I don’t know yet. I’ll have to see what’s in my toy box. Uh, I mean my tool box.

  1. I like the colours. I love touches of colour to things. It adds character.

    I agree. I had painted over the doors and trim from an orange and cranberry red combination to a dark reddish brown, and suddenly the room looked totally bland. The backsplash colors definitely brought some life back into it. Thanks for commenting!
