They suggested we send measurements to them in Indiana, they'd cut and ship the pieces to a laminator in another state and that company would laminate and send the pieces to us. All those steps, all those states, all the money--feels like aggravation waiting to happen.

Looked at frosted and sand blasted glass... all too modern. Any thoughts?
