Vintage Kitchens Rock!

Kerry – she didn’t paint or restore it and loves owning it. All original but the glass is gone

As part of our #realhomesmovement I shared this post on vintage kitchen dressers the other day, which you all loved! SO below is a little video I made from the post – sharing the story about why vintage decorating is the BEST – for so many reasons.

Here are just a few ideas on why vintage kitchens rock!

Just think about how you are:

  • saving things from landfill
  • giving something another life
  • making a unique and beautiful home
  • getting something worth a lot more money than you pay (especially if it is a roadside find!)
  • getting something that will last
  • not buying something made unethically (most of the time older vintage pieces were made by craftspeople and not in sweatshops)
  • someone mentioned on our Facebook page that they have all freestanding cupboards in their kitchen, and how lovely is that
  • you are not getting a kitchen that looks like everyone elses
  • you can display your treasures

What is not to love!
