1978 St. Charles kitchen with groovy grooved wood doors – 9 photos

1978 st charles kitchen cabinetsThanks to Wendy, who spotted this unique (to us, so far) set of 1978 St. Charles kitchen cabinets that came up for sale on craigslist in St. Louis. The cabinet boxes are steel, as usual. But the door and drawer fronts seem to be crafted from wood strips, with a natural tone wood bar and wood handles at the top.

Seriously, these vintage St. Charles kitchens were amazing — so many features. I am soooo tempted to get in the Ranger and drive down and get these myself, for my office remodel. Seriously.

    I’d call that counter butterscotch or carmel. I like it. Pam, if you do hop in the Ranger, stop by and fetch me! I’ll help you load ’em up. I’m just north of Springfield, IL. It’s an easy drive.

    They DO look cool, but the practical side of me can only think they would be a pain in the butt to clean. Scrubbing grease or egg yolk out of those crevices would be a nightmare.
