This vintage 1950s kitchen cupboard / kitchenette has been this week’s little renovation project.
We collected it from a garage over in Wakefield and set about giving it a bit of TLC.
First of all, it got given a good wash inside & out with hot, soapy water. The original red Formica laminate was very faded and mottled, so we repainted it in a lovely vintage spearmint green colour. If you’re uncertain about what colour you want you can buy little tester pots. You can even get colours specially matched at many local DIY shops.
We lined the shelves with a chintzy oil cloth that we bought online.
It’s now standing in our Picture House Antiques pitch waiting for someone to come along and give it a new home – in the meantime, it’s great for displaying our kitchenalia shop stock.
