Hi Kachina624!

 

When I saw your dream kitchen...

 

It brought me back to my Mother.  This was her kitchen in 1957!   However, her refeidgerator was not turquoise.

 

Sweet memory...

@Bellabutterfly  I absolutely love that kitchen.  I found the appliances online in Canada and they're extremely expensive plus you pay freight charges.  I have heard of people taking appliances to auto body shops and having them painted.

Kachina624...

 

Yes, you can buy white appliances...Have an auto body shop or a place where they do "Powder Coating" painting and get them "Custom" color painted.

 

Kachina624...You can have that Kitchen!

 

You can have your present kitchen cabnets painted or refaced and your appliances "Custom Painted"...

 

Life is short just do it!  That is if fiances allow...?

Re: Cool 1950's style camper

The turquoise colored appliances were before my time, but that was the color of the kitchen appliances in the 1960's mobile home the mother of my moms best friend lived in.   The home was a 10x50, and the cutest mobile home I've ever seen---even to this day.  Both doors were on the front, and there were pocket doors for the 2 bedrooms and bath.   

 

The first appliance color I remember was coppertone, followed by harvest gold, avocado, and pink, green, and blue bath fixtures.   I chose harvest gold for the house, and couldn't wait to get rid of that color in 2007 when we updated bathrooms!   I have chosen to stick to boring white appliances now.

The very first house we bought back in 1979 had a kitchen with all turquoise appliances. Even a turquoise countertop. I was in heaven. Heart

I grew up in homes with those kinds of furnishings, all from the 50's.

 

Both of my Gramma's had homes decorated with decor and furnishings like that. That was all modern then, from the 50's on into the 60's.
