Todd bought and restored these vintage steel kitchen cabinets thinking he would use them in a groove pad house o’ the future. Plans changed and now he is looking to sell them. We get a lot of listings for vintage metal kitchen cabinets on our buy/sell Forum, so I can’t show even a small fraction of them. But these make the cut: Not only is cobalt blue is my Retro Renovation 2012 color the year … but Todd also explains the process he used to refinish his vintage metal cabinets — first, bead blasting to strip the old paint… then, spray booth painting the boxes… then, powder coating the doors and drawers… all done professionally. I don’t give advice on how to repaint your vintage steel kitchen cabinets — I am not an expert — but I do occasionally feature readers who have used different methods, for you to consider as part of your research. Todd is the first person I’ve heard from with a detailed story — and results — using powder coating.
