When you bear in mind, I made my very own fake leaded glass cupboards in our final home. However I like that these are genuine, and in good situation! So, what’s our plan?

The reply: construct a PONY WALL

A pony wall (or half wall) to create a wonderful 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 classy approach plus acquire each cupboard house and counter house. It will create a wonderful separation between the dinette and household room. This has all the time been useless house behind a sofa, so this is smart for us!

It will assist us resolve a couple of design dilemmas which I’ll clarify under.

Pony Partitions Broaden Storage

In our kitchen, we want extra counter and tabletop house. A pony wall will enable us to have a pleasant serving house between the kitchen and household room (we like to entertain!) Plus we plan to take away some cabinetry within the kitchen (and can be shedding storage).

Leaded glass was highly regarded 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 components. Through the use of the leaded glass cupboards within the pony wall, it is going to create the proper interval trying constructed ins (not less than we predict so).

Cames are the steel / lead portion supporting the window panes, which have been all are in good situation. It will give the house a wonderful classic look that we each love.

Make Our Kitchen Appear Larger

Our our complete home is a protracted and slender in addition to open idea. This pony wall will assist to attach these areas, plus make sense out of a useless house behind the sofa. Extra space for storing in our kitchen is all the time a plus!

Add Aptitude with Cremone Bolts

I additionally bought some stunning Cremone bolt {hardware} from Amazon. So the plan is to provide it a French industrial look. An ideal excuse to provide 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 looking for a deeper sofa and going to maneuver our Ikea couches to our upstairs touchdown.
