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 trendy approach plus achieve each cupboard area and counter area.

It will assist us remedy a number of design dilemmas which I’ll clarify beneath.

Pony Partitions Develop Storage

Cames are the metallic / lead portion supporting the window panes, which had been all are in good situation. It will give the area a stupendous 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 lifeless area 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 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 challenge 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.
