darn cold outside but today I installed a nice retro fixture by my back door. It replaces a fixture that I was never very fond off and didn't (IMO) look very MCM. NEW FIXTURE OLD FIXTURE (not a great photo) I picked up the fixture on eBAY. I think it was an interior fixture but thought it would look...

Thought I would take a moment to update on the work we have been doing on our house. We have tried to keep as much of the MCM character as we could, but its been difficult as I think we probably live in the least MCM friendly City in the world. There are just so few local resources and ordering prod...

Here's an update. Finished the backsplash this weekend, demo and installation was pretty uneventful, though nothing like installing tile to show how out of square everything is. Here are some photos of the finished product: New Backsplash Photo 1 New Backsplash Photo 2 New Backsplash Photo 3 Funny t...

thanks for the feedback. We selected a much lighter tile, I started the replacement this weekend. The demo and installation is done, just letting the tile adhesive drive and will grout Monday or Tuesday night. I'll post some photos when complete.

Cheers,

outet for electric wall clock?

KITCHEN WALL OUTLET PHOTO I've been meaning to ask the community about this for some time but now that I'm back working in our kitchen (backsplash), I thought now would be a good time. Per the link above, we have an electrical outlet built in to the millwork in our kitchen. As you can see, the 2-pr...

Who's idea were the big honkin' handles? I'm guessing you don't like those :) My idea. Couldn't find any other hardware that looked good or even remotely resembled MCM. While scanning these forums I was inspired by many examples of the use of Ikea hardware. Also, given how narrow the kitchen is, I ...

Really like those cabinets, is that quartersawn mahogany/sapele/cuban mahogany or whatever other name they may call it now? Dan - Here it's referred to as "ribbon mahogany" and I was very pleased at how they turned out after having the paint stripped off them. This is very close to what t...

Kahuna,

I think your bathroom looks great! This is going to be our next project in our house and I hope it turns out as nice. I was concerned about using a larger floor tile in a small room like a bath, but it looks great in yours so I feel more comfortable with it now. Well done!

what to do with a mirror?

At the front entrance of our home there is a large (floor to ceiling) mirror that faces the front door and greets all our visitors. You can view a photo HERE . I don't really mind the mirror but I would like to dress it up a little. I was thinking about adding/mounting something in front of the mirr...

The ongoing story of our home

Hello! I've been lurking for a little while now but thought it was time to start a thread on our home. Before getting into the particulars of our project I thought I would share a little background about how we came to own this house. In mid June 2007 I received a phone call from one of my sisters (...

We had a connection to this house as it was originally built by my father (who was a custom home builder in...
