How To: Retro Kitchens

Retro Kitchen TableMore than just a place to cook food, kitchens are a meeting ground. A place where friends, family, or just yourself can unwind and enjoy the comforts of food. At this point it's obvious I love a yellow kitchen, but instead of infusing yellow with modern aspects like acrylic chairs or crisp lines, I want to pair this color with country decor. Old bread tins, glass canisters filled with preserves, and a retro kitchen table are essential to getting this look. When it comes to buying antique or vintage items, there's no better place than eBay. Along with 2.0% Cash Back, you'll find thousands of options for the home, regardless of style or budget.

The centerpiece of any retro kitchen, this Retro Kitchen Table really sets the tone with baby blue color and ornate table top design. Although this item is available for pick up only, I am constantly finding many more tables just like this one in all sorts of different colors.

Vintage Bread BoxVintage Bread Boxes and Canning Jars
One of the best ways to get a country look without the use of hens (or other tacky ornamentation) is through old containers like this Vintage Bread Box. Complete with sage green color and worn handles, this is the quintessential item to have in your kitchen. Canning jars like these Ball Mason Jars are not only a healthier way to store spices, preserves, etc, but they also make great vases and terrariums. I prefer to find older versions, but if you want a newer (and rust free) jar, you'll find those too.
