Comments Latanya Jackson says April 16, 2009 at 8:47 pm If anyone can help me Iam looking for Orange kitchen appliances (pots, pans,utencils etc….I’am also looking for burnt orange furniture preferably a sectional. Please e-mail me if you know where I can find these things. Thank you Reply e.j. says June 12, 2010 at 11:51 pm 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. Reply Sarah says April 30, 2009 at 4:48 am Hey Latanya, yes you can find Orange fridges and dishwasher panels from “Big Chill” http://bigchillfridge.com/site/ Reply chri says June 2, 2009 at 1:51 pm 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? Reply Ray Riney says June 28, 2009 at 12:33 am 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. Reply pam kueber says June 28, 2009 at 2:10 am 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. Reply Jana says August 16, 2009 at 4:24 am 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 Reply Addie says August 25, 2009 at 12:54 am Wear can I find vintage replacement back and seat for a 1950 kitchen dinette set? Reply pam kueber says August 25, 2009 at 1:21 am 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? Reply Somer Davis says September 7, 2009 at 5:18 pm 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 Reply pam kueber says September 7, 2009 at 5:30 pm 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 Reply pam says September 17, 2009 at 11:09 am anyone in illinois interested in st. charles kitchen cabinets? Perfect condition. Lots of them. Reply pam kueber says September 17, 2009 at 11:42 am Pam – all buying/selling needs to go on the Forum, please: http://retrorenovation.com/forum Reply Frank says October 26, 2009 at 6:17 pm 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. Reply tarcis says December 26, 2009 at 12:18 am Hi there, anybody knows where to find a 21 inch electric single wall oven Thermador? thank you very much…. Reply Tiffani says January 14, 2010 at 3:55 pm 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. Reply Lauren says February 5, 2010 at 2:06 pm 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? Reply pam kueber says February 5, 2010 at 2:26 pm 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 … Reply ModernistAnna says October 3, 2010 at 6:40 pm 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. Reply Jennifer Waite says October 17, 2010 at 12:25 pm 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. Reply Ericka says January 8, 2011 at 3:26 pm 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. Reply pam kueber says January 8, 2011 at 4:36 pm hi Ericka, I don’t know off the top of my head, but I’ll keep an eye out. The problem is that there were lots and lots of regional manufacturers of stuff like this back in the day — when things were made in America! Reply Kathy says May 13, 2011 at 8:44 pm 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. Reply Pat says June 8, 2011 at 8:39 pm 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. Reply pam kueber says June 9, 2011 at 10:36 am Pat: You can list these over on our Forum — http://retrorenovation.com/forum — no buying/selling here on the main blog. Good luck. Reply Molly says July 12, 2011 at 11:48 am 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 Reply pam kueber says July 12, 2011 at 3:52 pm Molly, no buying / selling here on the main blog – head over to the Forum: http://retrorenovation.com/forum Reply Amy says September 26, 2011 at 12:30 am We just bought a 1966 rambler and I’m wondering if the basement kitchen is original. The cabinets are wood St. Charles, painted cream with wood trim and wooden bin pulls. The sink is Elkay Lustertone. There have been a couple of remodels in the house, so it might be later. I can’t find any pictures of similar St. Charles cabinets. Any ideas? Reply Kathy Baliey says November 24, 2011 at 6:38 pm Hi Pam. I LOVE your website. Find myself there constantly as I put in various search phrases into Google to research our restoration project of a 1959 side-split. I grew up in a 1957 sidesplit, so my memory serves me fairly well as well as I try to capture what “vintage” actually looks like in this specific house. Lately, I have been trying to find bathroom faucets that fit the criteria. Wow. Not much out there even vaguely of this vintage! Everything is round, pulled and bulbous -vintage 2011, I guess! So, I had some luck at Home Depot with a new product line that Martha Stewart has come out with :Model # F3020-21. It has those squarish lines and thinner spout that remind me of the bathroom faucets in my bathroom growing up. Too bad it is brushed nickel. Bought it anyway (thought it was as close as I could get), and am mixing it with squarish chrome accessories. Found the old towel racks on ebay, and a cup-holder at a re-use centre. Put some vintage drawer pulls on a new vanity that has the look of a full frame cabinet. Now, I have found out that I could have gotten closer. Kohler has a COMMERCIAL line that has a lot of the old styles still! Check it out! A bonanza of good choices. http://www.us.kohler.com/designkb/colors/timeline_1960.jsp Look under Bathroom Products, Commercial, Faucets Flushometers and Fixtures, Manual faucets. THANKS for your invaluable work towards preserving such cool slices of our history, culture and architecture! – Kathy Bailey Reply pam kueber says November 24, 2011 at 11:10 pm Hi Kathy, thanks. I have spotlighted a number of faucets that could be appropriate, see my category: Bathrooms/Faucets http://retrorenovation.com/category/bathroom-categories/lav-faucets/ Reply Newer Comments » Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
