A True 1940's Kitchen
While in the big city of Conway today, we decided to look into getting a new, and smaller fridge. The one we had was a bit too big for us. Also, it did not fit in with the back dating of our 1940′s kitchen. We bought a small one that would fit under the counter. The old one went out on the porch with a free sign, and we were happy to see it go. It opened up the kitchen so much more.
Our next task is to find an old icebox or old fridge with the compressor on top. As long as it is in presentable condition, we can use it for storage. Just a few more tweaks, and we will?? have our 1940′s kitchen. The 1920′s hoosier is now all fixed up.
The microwave is gone, along with the dishwasher and washer and dryer. Gone are the modern appliances. Gone are the teflon pans, replaced with pots from the late 30′s. If you walk??into our kitchen, you would be hardpressed to know what year it is.
I see many pictures online where they say they have a “1950 kitchen”. They have all these “gadgets” hanging about to make it look like the 1950′s. Then I see a microwave on the counter and I have to laugh.
