Pam! Look at these great cabinets I saw a couple months ago at a salvage yard…need some work, but GREAT GREEN!! holy cow, i want them! $2500, in Dallas. probably long gone by now, but i had to share.

I love salvage yards…I hate to tell where these are in case I decide to go get ’em! Ha. I tried to talk my husband into them…but so far, no dice. Pretty cheap price, huh? They are at DHW Salvage on Empire Central in Dallas. Or were, anyway.

Have fun!!! 😀

Thanks, Julie. And notice, y’all, the trim at the top of the sink base. This appears to be just like the trim on the possible-Youngstowns listed on the Forum this weekend – the ones from Virginia Beach. Looks like those Youngstowns are Beauty Craft’s after all, and we now have a way to identify this brand, at least in this iteration.

    Connie…are you Texan? I’m looking for some metal cabinets to go along with my remodel in Austin. Anybody else? Leads on cabinets? I’m willing to travel for them!

    Hi McFish — be sure to see the Postwar Steel Forum on the upper nav bar – far right. It is chock full of cabinets for sale across the U.S. – and you can post your search there, too!

    I have a 1953 Beauty Craft kitchen, looks very much like the one shown above except in off-white. I want to replace the cabinet pulls but they are4 1/4″ on center, not a standard size. Anybody have any idea where I can find some? I need 32. The ones in this photo are chrome and would be perfect. Mine are wood.
