      Look for Catherine Holm pots and pans – orange is one of the staple colors – on ebay or craigslist. They have an embedded stamp “Made in Norway”.

      Good luck.

    I have what looks like veneer westinghouse kitchen cabinets. 3 of the doors have chips or water damage. The rest are in great shape. Medium maple color . Where can i find replacement doors?

    I am looking for bull nose peices and tile to replace chipped pieces on a 1954 bathroom vanity in our bathroom. The colors are brown and off white, or if anyone has any tips on how to repair…most of them are in good shape but there is a couple with some pretty bad chips.

      Hi Ray, this is not a DIY or fix-it site. But the first place we usually send people to try and match vintage tile is B&W. Check the Bathroom page and also search “Tile” in the search box to find the complete list of resources. Good luck.

    Can anyone help me find appliance paint in retro colors. I am looking to re-paint a refridgerator in buttercup. No luck finding a vendor so far…Thanks…Jana..El Paso, Texas

      Hi Addie, I don’t know the answer to this one. Every once in a while I see true vintage replacement backs and seats on ebay…but then, I am not sure these are “one size fits all” as there were many, many different manufacturers. Is there no way you can use your current seat and back infrastructure and rebuild from there?

    Hello,

    I own a vintage brown Westinghouse wall oven. I do not believe it is a white Westinghouse because of the company emblem. Our house was built in 1963. The burning element has gone out and I am at a loss for assistance with finding the replacement part. Any ideas? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Somer Davis

      Sorry, Somer, I don’t have this info and we don’t do much on vintage stoves here except ogle them sometimes. In general, I’d recommend checking with a local, long-time electrical supply or appliance store…good luck, Pam

    Retro colours, just head to an auto paint supplier. If you have a piece the colour you want take it to the store and they often will be able to match the colour. Then they can make up a spray bomb in that colour and you’re off and running. Make sure what your painting is super clean. And remember the paint fumes are toxic.. ventilate or paint outside.

    I have metal cabinets in my kitchen and would like to add some more? Where can I find what I am looking for? I have no idea what brand my cabinets are.

    My husband and I have a palm leaf family area, a burnt orange dining room and a cream living area. The kitchen is central to all these rooms and we cannot find a good color to match all of these bold colors. Should me go bold or subtle?

      Hi Lauren, it’s hard to say without seeing photos and how everything works together. Off the top of my head, I’d say you need some element(s) to pull all the colors together, like window treatments — or wallpaper, my favorite! I am imagining something with… burnt orange/your green/brown (?)/cream…. I went over to Bradbury’s website, here are your colors — with rose red(!) http://bradbury.com/carn_2.html … it may be way off your tastes/decor, but you get the idea …

    What a great site–I’m a mid century modern enthusiast but the interiors on Mad Men have fueled an obsession with the cozier interiors of that era. These kitchen photos help me understand some of the decor choices on the show that I thought looked more 1950s than 1960s. I can’t get enough of the Draper’s kitchen and I’ll be very sad when Betty inevitably has to sell the house.

    I think it’s #33, the pink range with the double oven on top: genius. And I would LOVE to have my laundry in the kitchen.

  11. Ericka says

    My kitchen has the exact same tiles as in picture #32 (the recipe tiles, shown in this picture with a copper kettle). Does anyone know anything about them? I love them and I’d love to know who made them and when they were made. So far I haven’t had much luck with Google searches.

    Addie,

    You may find what you need in replacement chair cushions at American Chairs in New York, NY. I don’t remember the web site name but you can google it. They can make new seats in many colors and styles just like the old ones for chrome kitchen chairs. Retro cracked ice or plain fabric, studs, cut-out seat backs like on “Everybody Knows Raymond” in the parents house across the street. They also had tables and 50’s diner type stuff. You can order just a replacement seat or a whole table and chair set. Their toll free number when last I used it was 1-888-831-7629. I would try the web first. Good luck.

    I’d love to find a new home for my vintage 60’s Graceland Cabinet Lavatory. It is beige with a white sink, and in good condition.

    Hi,

    I have a set of PINK wall oven, electric cooktop, and sink. I also have a stailess steel range hood. All work great and are in great shape!!! I would like to know if anyone knows how much they are worth.

    Thank you,

    Molly

    Looking for the retractable assembly for a copper pendant light from the 1960s. Has a round fabric-wrapped electrical cord, that rolls up into that oblong bulb. Got one to sell – cheap? Trying to fix my mom’s fixture over the kitchen table, please?

    • pam kueber says

      Sorry, Polly, I do not know of a source — I am told these are no longer to code. Please consult with a professional.

    I have the big great light fixture on the second picture! AMAZING TO SEE IT HERE on my favorite website! The house was in one family for 62 years…
