Red Retro Kitchen - a Work in Progress

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Picture something red. Show it to us.


red stuff from our kitchen

We've tried to decorate and accessorize our kitchen in red, starting from this Sears retro kitchen set.  There's still a lot of work to be done and money to be spent, but here's some of what we have so far.

vintage barbeque trays

These vintage barbeque trays hang on the kitchen wall.  One came from a yard sale / estate sale, the other from an antique & collectibles shop several weeks later.  They are identical except for size.

stool from Target

This was the last red stool that particular Target store had at the time.

the vintage clock

John bought this vintage clock on eBay.  I like the Deco numerals.

I love the red retro look in a kitchen.  My aunt had one of those clocks years ago, although hers was a very dull beige.  It looks like your kitchen is right out of the 1950s!  What fun!
