bullet proof glass is not a typical household material, just FYI

Phone books, of course. Curly steel pot-scrubbing pads but you'd need an awful lot of 'em.

Pots, pans, kitchen sink, bathroom basin unless they're as fiberglas as the bathtub is these days. Wooden cutting boards.

A cast iron bath tub is probably the most bullet resistant household material.

It's hard to find those anymore these days, unless you live in a very old house. :)

I guess the phone book thing works only in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago.....big cities with big books. ;)

My entire "house" is bulletproof, if we are talking civilian rounds.

Depending upon the caliber of the firearm and the space from which projectile is fired, the cast iron skillet your mom has is likely the best shield followed by stainless steel utility items such as pots and pans. Outdoors the siding of the house if made of concrete, i.e. Hardy plank, could be a deterrent to shots fired, with the same restrictions on caliber and space.
See Kokinaw's answer as well.

Thick hardback books, bathtub - if it is old and iron, refrigerator.
