For those who 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 good situation! So, what’s our plan?

The reply: construct a PONY WALL

A pony wall (or half wall) to create a lovely 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 means plus acquire each cupboard house and counter house. This can create a lovely separation between the dinette and household room. This has at all times been lifeless house behind a sofa, so this is sensible for us!

This can assist us resolve just a few 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!)

Cames are the steel / lead portion supporting the window panes, which had been all are in good situation. This can give the house a lovely classic look that we each love.

Make Our Kitchen Appear Greater

Our our complete home is an extended and slender in addition to open idea. This pony wall will assist to attach these areas, plus make sense out of a lifeless house 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 recent 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.
