Well, we have already bought our kitchen for our house and it is so far removed from 1950's!. Think stainless steel neff appliances and beech units. All I really want is a stand alone dresser, enamel bread bins and kitsch china.
Now, the accessories I can get together. But I have to do something about the beech units!. I am think about using 'Plastikote'. It is basically a spray paint that can be used on a million and one different surfaces.
'Why not give your tired kitchen units a new lease of life? You can use spray paints to quickly refresh your existing cupboards and drawers, making it simple to achieve the look of a new set of units at a fraction of the price and a minimum of effort.' (From the Plastikote website)
I'm super excited to revamp our kitchen now and as soon as I start I will be posting with progress. I shall have my 50's kitchen!.
