Leaded glass is a standard phrase for what really is known as leadlight glass. We scored 9 classic leaded glass cupboards for less than $50. Right here is our plan to offer them a second life!

Our household room transformation has been sluggish as we determine one of the best ways to configure this area.

9 Leaded Glass Cupboard doorways for $50 on Fb Market

Then I discovered these lovely leaded glass cupboards on Fb Market for $50. Lastly, the architectural component I’ve been ready for! In case you keep in mind, I made my very own fake leaded glass cupboards in our final home. However I like that these are genuine, and in excellent situation! So, what’s our plan?

The reply: construct a PONY WALL

A pony wall (or half wall) to create a phenomenal architectural divide between our dinette and residing space. By incorporating the leaded glass cupboards right into a pony wall, we will enclose the brand new built-ins in a trendy approach plus acquire each cupboard area and counter area. It will create a phenomenal separation between the dinette and household room. This has at all times been useless area behind a sofa, so this is sensible for us!

It will assist us remedy just a few design dilemmas which I’ll clarify under.

Pony Partitions Broaden Storage

In our kitchen, we’d like extra counter and tabletop area. A pony wall will permit us to have a pleasant serving area between the kitchen and household room (we like to entertain!) Plus we plan to take away some cabinetry within the kitchen (and shall be shedding storage). We aren’t architects – only a couple who needs to make these rooms extra cohesive and stream collectively whereas embracing a neoclassic look.

Add Architectural Parts

Leaded glass was very talked-about in Greek Revival, neoclassical homes. We agree that our inside leans towards neoclassical, and whereas our home isn’t actually from that interval, will probably be enjoyable including these parts. Through the use of the leaded glass cupboards within the pony wall, it’s going to create the proper interval wanting constructed ins (no less than we predict so). Mark and I may even be making the spherical columns sq. and incorporating them into the design. Spherical is extra period-accurate however we simply desire sq. pillars.

Cames are the metallic / lead portion supporting the window panes, which had been all are in excellent situation. It will give the area a phenomenal classic look that we each love.

Make Our Kitchen Appear Larger

Our our whole home is an extended and slim in addition to open idea. This pony wall will assist to attach these areas, plus make sense out of a useless area behind the sofa. Extra cupboard space in our kitchen is at all times a plus!

Add Aptitude with Cremone Bolts

I additionally bought some lovely Cremone bolt {hardware} from Amazon. So the plan is to offer it a French industrial look. An ideal excuse to offer it a tiny bit of recent French touches which I like!

New flooring will occur after this mission and the kitchen island is redone. A brand new sofa is coming since our present configuration is a bit awkward. Extra on that quickly. We’re searching for a deeper sofa and going to maneuver our Ikea couches to our upstairs touchdown.

We’re drawing up our plans and we’ve already bought the wooden. We are going to maintain you posted on our progress!
