I am checking Craigslist all the time for anything retro to purchase or flip. Every once in a while I see old metal kitchen cabinets from a renovation that are being given away for free of thrown out if not picked up. When I see this I am so disappointed. These cabinets are true work horses from the kitchens of that era. If I owned a home I would jump on these and install them into my kitchen but I rent so it isn’t an option. I wanted to show how great these cabinets are so maybe I can prevent someone from throwing them away because once they are gone they are gone for good. Here is a clip with some great gals in a kitchen. Notice the cabinets. Also when watching the video look for a younger father from the movie the “Christmas Story”, and you might also notice the refrigerator was blogged about previously on our site.
A few notable makers of these cabinets are St.Charles, Crosley, Geneva, Youngstown, Morton, Avco, and even Sears. They came in many different styles and colors. Here are some examples of kitchens with these great metal cabinets.
