R.I.P. Little Yellow Oven

by This is Carrie on October 12, 2008

This oven was original to our 1950’s house. The top oven never worked great and the bottom oven never worked at all. Even so, we grew to love that little yellow oven over the past year since we purchased our home. I worked so hard to integrate it’s random yellow color into our (also random) black, aqua and white kitchen.

But now the oven has officially died. Not a replacement part to be found. I am so sad. Especially because all the yellow accents in our kitchen seem so strange now and DH doesn’t like the idea of me getting near our shiny new oven with a can of yellow spray paint.

I don’t blame him.

oh…so sad! it looked so vintage and cool! did you actually find a new oven to fit into that space? Replacing our oven was quite the chore and it was only from the
1980s.

I love your vintage kitchen! My parents have the same type and era oven in their home (only the top works). It amazes me how my Dad can still bake perfect bread in it and my Mom can cook for quite a crowd with just one old oven.

Same problem though – they can’t find an oven that will fit in that space.

I just stumbled onto your blog, and you’ve got my oven. The bottom one is still hanging in there for us. What a nice blog!
