Well, over at House & Home Magazine's blog, Michael Penney was blogging about retro pink kitchens. The look oh so feminine and fun, but who would be courageous enough to do it! He included some of kitchens of yesteryear, and to my shock I saw this picture:
Now, I knew my kitchen was original b/c of the state of decay the cabinets were in (you might notice a missing drawer face in one of the shots), but when we looked into renting this place I loved all the vintage charm and light it had. What I didn't know is that it actually still has the original hardware as well! Look at the picture of my kitchen! I have to say the cabinets & hardware are really a love/hate thing for me. Everything is pretty beat up and dated at this point in its 90 or so year life, BUT I would so much rather have the kitchen I have than some dark wood veneered cabinets from the 80's, or even 90's. I'm a sucker for a white kitchen. I suppose there probably was a cool retro stovetop at some point as well.....too bad it has been replaced only for the fact that these stoves give it that oh-so vintage vibe.
