Nice work! What faucet did you specify for the kitchen sink? I'm trying to find one very simple, "square" with a pull-out spray

The counters are pure white Ceasarstone with mitered corners. They replaced the original plastic laminate counters. This is a fully restored 1969 St. Charles Co. steel cabinet kitchen. The only new items are the appliances, fixtures and counter tops.

How were the cabinets refinished? - We have these cabinets and they are beginning to show their age. We bought our house 20 years ago, and they were already in the kitchen. Our door handles are exactly the same as this picture. The steel hinges are beginning to rust, and the finish is thinning from cleaning. They are still shiny. Any advice you can give will be appreciated!

The cabinets were removed and refinished in a paint booth. Since the cabinets are metal, any reputable auto body shop should be able to paint them for you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Restore a true original: This is a complete restoration of an original St. Charles painted-steel kitchen, part of a modern glass house designed in 1969 by architect Robert Fitzpatrick."The cabinet boxes were repaired and refinished in place, while the metal doors and drawers were removed and restored by a local automotive body shop," says LePage.The original appliances were replaced with state-of-the-art ones, except for a fully functioning, vintage Sub-Zero refrigerator that got new stainless steel panels. The rubber flooring, which was not original to the house, was removed and replaced with 24-by-24-inch porcelain tiles.
