Leaded Glass Home windows Challenge • Snazzy Dwelling

Leaded glass is a typical phrase for what truly 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 gradual as we determine one of the best ways to configure this house. Except for portray the room white and altering the mantel shade not a lot has modified. You may see all of our household room initiatives to-date right here. I nonetheless have lots of huge concepts for this house!

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 bear 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 stupendous architectural divide between our dinette and dwelling space. By incorporating the leaded glass cupboards right into a pony wall, we are able to enclose the brand new built-ins in a classy means plus acquire each cupboard house and counter house. It will create a stupendous separation between the dinette and household room. This has at all times been useless house behind a sofa, so this is sensible for us!

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

Pony Partitions Increase Storage

In our kitchen, we’d like 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 will probably be dropping storage). We aren’t architects – only a couple who needs to make these rooms extra cohesive and move collectively whereas embracing a neoclassic look. Beneath is an image of the itemizing photograph earlier than we moved in.

Add Architectural Components

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 right interval trying constructed ins (at the least we expect 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 steel / lead portion supporting the window panes, which have been all are in excellent situation. It will give the house a stupendous 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 house behind the sofa. Extra space for storing 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 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 are going to hold you posted on our progress!
