Planning & Remodeling Kitchens
Submitter: I love remodeling and decorating books, but I just found a Planning & Remodeling Kitchens book from 1976 in our collection today. The section on “Choosing the ingredients of a successful kitchen” talks about microwave ovens as “among the newest kitchen appliances!” The photos show a trip down memory lane of 1970s kitchens – one photo’s caption reads “Fresh coat of paint gave kitchen cabinets new look”…the paint color is a horrid orangish yellow. Weeded from our small public library’s shelves…not exactly current.
Holly: I’d love to see some of those pictures from this book! I can tell from submitter’s descriptions that this is horribly out of date. No one wants that “horrid orangish yellow” on their walls and everyone has a microwave, so this is just a ridiculous choice for public library shelves.
