I installed this awesome window between the old pass thru which existed between the kitchen and dining room. I found this window on close out for $50 at a local home improvement store. I had no idea what I was going to do with it but I knew that I could not pass up such a sweet deal! Here are updated pictures of my ALMOST finished kitchen - cannot wait for it to be complete!
The old pass thru - just sort of an oddity and it became a place to hand stemware glasses.
These are pictures of the original large pass thru. It was nice and functional but it was always sort of a strange design choice.
Little did I know that if - on a whim - I held the circle window up that it would fit and could fit perfectly. I was excited about how it could look!
Years ago, before the internet, before Pinterest, I used to clip pictures from magazines and catalogs which were intriguing to me with regards to home interiors. Some I have had since I was a teenager and I still love them after all these years. I recently came across this picture which, interestingly, I also found on the internet. It was the interior window placed between a dining room and kitchen for interest and light. After all these years, this design vision is becoming a reality in MY house! Pretty cool.
So using some very bright neon poster board for a template - LOL - I measured it out, cut some drywall and two by fours and secured the window in place.
This is how it looks from the dining room side - it adds a beautiful contrast to the deep navy wall. It still needs to be spackled and sanded but one room at a time. :-)
Almost ready to be installed - can't wait to see how it looks! Fingers crossed that it would fit! It did!
It was quite tricky cutting the ledger stone to fit around it. I simply took my time and did it right.
Starting to be able to envision the final product - it was going to look better than I hoped it would.
And the final product - I absolutely love it! It still allows light to pass thru but adds a touch of elegance to the pass thru. I'm so glad I hung onto that picture from a magazine all those years. :-)
