Fun Items for a Retro Kitchen | ShopGirlDaily.com

As I mentioned when we bought our new house, it’s a real fixer-upper. The bones of the house are great and many rooms just need a good coat of paint (like my son’s lime green bedroom), but the one room that needs the most work is our kitchen. It’s going to be a gut redo, but who knows when we will actually be able to afford the type of work that it needs. (We’re talking tearing out a wall, all new cabinets, new flooring, painting… the absolute works.) Currently, we have a very retro kitchen, but not necessarily retro in a good way. We have lime green countertops and the oddest cabinets that anyone has ever seen. The tile on the floor is also a brown and gold plaid, for lack of a better explanation. It’s, um, interesting, to say the least.

Whenever we get around to the kitchen renovations – and we are years from that point since we also have to do things like re-do a bathroom and a half bath, tear out and replace a concrete patio and pergola, install fencing… and the list goes on – it’s going to cost an arm and a leg and we probably won’t have any additional funds to “decorate.” As a compromise, I’ve already decided that our future kitchen will have some vintage kitchen decor so that I can buy some items now that will fit in our old-timey kitchen and will fit later in our modern retro kitchen.
