Maybe soon! Thanks to our friend Mark, we may be coming into an ugly, but workable, set of metal kitchen cabinets. They’ll need some work, but they’re period-correct and they’ve got a lot of potential.
We’ll be getting a Dishmaster kitchen faucet, which are awesome retro faucets that are actually still in production and made in the USA. You can read about a tour of the factory and a little about the company’s history here.
Now, I know I was talking about fancy stone countertops here, buy why spend thousands on rocks when you can spend hundreds on period-correct boomerang laminate with stainless steel edges?
These two are directly from the Formica corporation, and can probably be ordered directly through Lowes. This might be the cheapest option, and I like the Charcoal and Skylark options.
These ones come from a company called Bars and Booths, who seem to specialize in retro countertops and tabletops, which is right up our alley. They’ve got a special selection of boomerang laminates, but they’re also pricier. I like their Glacier and Turquoise color schemes.
