Fixing up the kitchen

I finally figuered out how to replace the end panels in my Argosy kitchen. The old ones were cracked badly. My husband made new wooden panels, took off the roll-up doors, replaced the end pieces and remounted the rool-ups. Then I covered the end pieces with vinyl wall covering that we bought to use on the back wall. Then I put the vinyl I bought for the belly stripe on the edges. We have been looking for flexible molding and had little luck. I think this is very 70's.

Nice idea! Really highlights it and, if it's the same as the outside, pulls it all together in an orange stripe sort of way! Good job!

Not knowing enough to be afraid... (I know more than I did, but I did it anyway!)

very cool.

say, what did hubby use for stock? you just said "wooden"...that panel next to the fridge looks like some sort of 3/4" my '73, those panels are not even 1/4"...probably more like 3/16ths. don't think there'd be room for such a wide piece. but it looks good!

Neato, Juel, and I agree that the stripe inside and outside matching is a neat idea. That is a strong link to the Argosy look.

Looking good! Do the new ends stick out more then the originals? The reason I ask, as I have become more follicly challenged, my head has become a magnet for all sorts of objects. I have smacked the bottom of a few of the overheads in my 75.
