Host: Beth a Paul wanted a vintage diner look like this for their kitchen but ended up with a 50’s fiasco instead. Now after a few days work and on a $2,000 budget we’ve given them the authentic diner of their dreams.
Host: How cute is this diner?
Paul: This is great isn’t it?
Beth: It’s adorable, I love it.
Host: I absolutely love it.
To get the 1950’s diner look here’s what we did? First we took the 50’s checkerboard pattern off the walls and brought it down to the floor. Next we transformed Paul and Beth’s bland appliance using common 50s colors and materials like pastel paints, chrome and laminate and finally we got rid of the teapots and teapot wallpaper and replaced them with a pale yellow wall color, soda fountain glassware and 50’s memorabilia.
With the addition of silver paint and chrome the booth area is now straight out of the 50s.
This whole corner highlighted, I mean this was too easy.
Beth: I know I love the records, all the memorabilia. It’s just so cute I mean it gives you this corner it’s own little special tops.
Host: That’s right.
And then there’s the pantry.
It just seem like a perfect solution to rip out the walls throw glass in, throw light in. It totally changed the whole look of that corner.
Opening up the cupboards and painting them Salmon gave us that authentic diner look and the new backsplash only adds to the flavor. Plus the green tiles are a nice compliment to the new colors on the dishwasher and the fridge.
Host: I can’t believe we spray painted the dishwasher and refrigerator. It looks great.
And my favorite spot in the room the new seating there.
Beth: Oh yeah.
Host: Now this is perfect for all the entertainments that you said you do. Now we still have our washer and dryer under here that we have to get to, yeah. This is definitely, well it’s removable you know all these pieces can be just hauled right outside and look at the stools look how great those came out.
Paul: I thought this was far going, far going.
Host: Throw it away where’s the trash can.
$2000 budget, where did it go?
Host: Well you know the floor did make a very big impact but it really wasn’t the most expensive thing. I think we really spread the budget throughout the room. The glass tiles you know being one chunk of it and then the glass shelving because that’s custom cut glass shelving.
Host: Okay. What’s a 50s diner with out a root beer float.
Beth: You know we just happen to have some ice cream.
