Walking on Broken Glass - Shane's DIY - Fluff DesignsHi again!  So the other day we had a tragedy. One of our lovely sleek and contemporary glass and chrome coffee tables broke into a million pieces.

Here is what the table looked like before the tragedy:

 But “waste not, want not” Grandma always says! 

Because this is tempered glass and the broken glass pieces are small I figured they’d be perfect for vase and bowl filler. They were still sharp, however, and needed to be dulled down a bit first.

So I found a canning jar, put a teaspoon of sand in it with the pieces of glass, and shook the jar for a couple solid minutes. After all the sharp edges were dulled, I washed and strained the pieces. Lastly I picked out the small bits and let them dry on a towel.
