One thing leads to another - 1964

It all started with a re-upholstery of the cushions. Then a little paint would be nice. Then... on and on. You get the idea.
Now I have to get it all back together before departing on a short week trip in 3 weeks. The original Magic Chef was rust coated and the oven was a storage area which we never used or wanted to use. Yanked it and rebuilt the base cabinet with IKEA drawer kits. New cooktop will sit on a new countertop with new sink to replace the chipped original white sink. Here is one image in process... more to come assuming we continue to make progress.

Was the stainless countertop Ikea? If not, how did you get it?

The stainless counter is actually a stainless tabletop marketed by IKEA as a table that you can buy without its legs. Which costs $129. It is 59 inches long and was wider than we needed so it was cut using a variety of saws. It is very thin stainless and had to be bolstered in the core because the center of the table is just cardboard even though the perimeter is a wood core if that makes sense. For the price it seems like it was a great choice and it is quite lightweight.

The new countertop is beautiful.

Some other forum members, maccamper, put in a salvaged, stainless steel restaurant kitchen counter in their trailer. Heavy duty and spectacular in appearance.
