A sneak peek at Karmi’s retro renovation kitchen

karmis-pink-and-aqua-kitchenWhere has Karmi been all these many months? Well, I know. I hear from her via email now and then…she’s been lurking, she tells me. And — she’s a-workin’ on her kitchen. Then, there’s that thing called “life” and “work” going on, too. She wrote me the other day. Says the kitchen is almost done. The main countertop had to go back for rework (oh, we know these things happen…) but this piece fit.  Enjoy this little slice of her aqua and pink kitchen. The whole kit and kaboodle to come soon.

    Oh my! I can’t wait to see the whole thing, that stove, cabinets and counter are dreamy!
    I love aqua, pink and gray, almost did that here but then went with green instead of gray, still pretty but sigh.

    Boy I can’t wait to do our kitchen and get our tappan deluxe restored!

    Great job Karmi and I sure can’t wait to see the rest :O)

    oh, and love the circle cabinets and handles too..

    So much to look at -and covet- in this little snippet. Karmi and I must share brain waves… I am planning to use those drawer pulls and installing that kind of rounded counter/shelving unit in my kitchen. I already have a similar vintage stove (came with the house).
    Great job, Karmi! Can’t wait to see the rest!

    I saw another set of GE cabs on St. Louis C-List the other day in yellow and thought how cool it would be to get a bunch of different colors and mix up the doors and drawer faces. Who was the famous artist who’s paintings looked like that?

    Karmi–So cool! I want to imitate the turquoise open shelf. Was it original or did you have it constructed? I’d like to have such shelves added to 16″ w x 24″ d x 30″ high cabinet I’ll have left over in my kitchen. Cabinet is metal (Youngstown), but maybe adding the wood shelf on either side–with cracked ice formica top & metal banding on entire unit and, if it’s possible, on the shelf surfaces–would be feasible. What do folks think?
