Leaded glass is a typical phrase for what truly is known as leadlight glass. We scored 9 classic leaded glass cupboards for under $50. Right here is our plan to present them a second life!

Our household room transformation has been gradual as we determine one of the simplest 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 really 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 good looking architectural divide between our dinette and dwelling space. By incorporating the leaded glass cupboards right into a pony wall, we will enclose the brand new built-ins in a classy method plus acquire each cupboard area and counter area. This may create a good looking separation between the dinette and household room. This has all the time been useless area behind a sofa, so this is smart for us!

This may assist us resolve just a few design dilemmas which I’ll clarify beneath.

Pony Partitions Increase 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 might be dropping storage). We aren’t architects – only a couple who desires to make these rooms extra cohesive and circulate collectively whereas embracing a neoclassic look. Beneath is an image of the itemizing picture earlier than we moved in.

Add Architectural Components

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, it will likely be enjoyable including these parts. By utilizing the leaded glass cupboards within the pony wall, it would create the right interval wanting constructed ins (at the least 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 have been all are in excellent situation. This may give the area a good looking classic look that we each love.

Make Our Kitchen Appear Larger

Our our complete home is a protracted 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 all the time a plus!

Add Aptitude with Cremone Bolts

I additionally bought some lovely Cremone bolt {hardware} from Amazon. So the plan is to present it a French industrial look. An ideal excuse to present it a tiny bit of recent French touches which I really 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 purchasing 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’ll preserve you posted on our progress!
