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

Our household room transformation has been sluggish as we determine the easiest way to configure this area. Other than portray the room white and altering the mantel shade not a lot has modified.

9 Leaded Glass Cupboard doorways for $50 on Fb Market

Then I discovered these stunning leaded glass cupboards on Fb Market for $50. Lastly, the architectural factor I’ve been ready for! In the event 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 an exquisite architectural divide between our dinette and residing space. By incorporating the leaded glass cupboards right into a pony wall, we are able to enclose the brand new built-ins in a trendy method plus achieve each cupboard area and counter area. This can create an exquisite separation between the dinette and household room. This has at all times been useless area behind a sofa, so this is sensible for us!

This can assist us resolve a couple of design dilemmas which I’ll clarify beneath.

Pony Partitions Broaden Storage

In our kitchen, we’d like extra counter and tabletop area. A pony wall will enable 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 will likely be shedding storage). We aren’t architects – only a couple who needs to make these rooms extra cohesive and circulation collectively whereas embracing a neoclassic look. Under 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, will probably be enjoyable including these components. Through the use of the leaded glass cupboards within the pony wall, it’ll create the right 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 good situation. This can give the area an exquisite classic look that we each love.

Make Our Kitchen Appear Larger

Our our total 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 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 contemporary French touches which I like!

New flooring will occur after this undertaking 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 are going to preserve you posted on our progress!
