Do you want to build a ‘new’ kitchen using vintage steel kitchen cabinets? Well, buckle up: Because if you’re going to fit someone else’s cabinets into your space, you may have to collect quite a few to fit your kitchen layout. How many? How about: 60. Yes, Drew is most definitely a The Hard Way 2017 contender after collecting 60 vintage Geneva steel kitchen cabinets — from four different sets in four different locations — so that he could get the “just right” layout for his apartment in an historic Chicago complex. And to increase the level of difficulty even more: He hunted a rare “Impasto” finish. That Lazy Daisy was… a unicorn, but he found it!Heck yeah there is more →
My new hunka hunka: A vintage, lighted display clock that surely was used in a store that sold Geneva cabinets. I jumped on this Buy-It-Now the moment I saw it on ebay. I already have a Geneva kitchen merchandising banner in my kitchen full of 1963 Geneva kitchen cabinets, and this was a perfect addition. Heck yeah there is more →
I scored this vintage Geneva Kitchens advertising banner on ebay a bit ago. It is PERFECT for this spot in my kitchen, don’t you think? It makes me pretty happy. And for those of you wondering, that’s a vintage “Bin-Et” below. We bought it 25 year ago and it’s always found a perfect spot in any house we were in. We use it to hold fruits and vegetables, and in the bottom compartment (not completely visible in this photo) we stash newspapers for recycling.
