    ooh! Avocado green stove! Love the backsplash too! Change the hardware on the cabinets to a wrought iron, wood or tile floor and wah la! an arts and crafts kitchen!

    Oh, that reminds me of the portable dishwasher we had in the 70’s, with a cutting board top. They were huge.
    Just roll them up to sink, hook up the hoses and get out your ear plugs.
    They did the job and didn’t leak.
    BTW, you can still buy kitschy wallpaper simalar to that. I like this wallpaper, too, but not the dark green tile.

    Nice! Perfect wallpaper for that colonial craze in the 50’s/60’s. I have vintage interior design books with rooms sporting that exact paper.

    It is nice to see a shiny clean kitchen for a change! Someone has given this kitchen, and probably the whole house, a lot of TLC over the years.

    We used to have wallpaper similar to this in our 1959 home that I spent my childhood in!

    I’ve seen this one before. It must have been very popular!

    We are in the middle of redoing our own house (yep, all the work on our own!), and we found this exact wallpaper under 4 other wall papers in our kitchen!! Small world!!
