    My very own american diner

    Last year after visiting various diners local to me and searching the internet for ideas, we decided to revamp our kitchen in the style of an american diner………and after over 8 weeks of work with the help of a few friends it’s finished at last.

    That's brilliant! See if you can sell the idea to Ikea. Be round later for a milkshake!

    Very good idea and nicely done!

    As a ex-kitchen and bathroom fitter, I like to see new ideas and that one is simple but appealing. And easy to put back to a normal style if you ever wanted to sell the house on - not that any potential buyers should be put off by that.

    Funny you should ask that Bob, I found one of these at a swap meet, had it re chromed and just need to fit all the bits back in it and find some space for it in the kitchen.

    Absolutely brilliant! What a great job! Agree, need a jukebox now. I on the other hand have the opposite problem, a 1953 Jukebox but no diner! Look at the picture below for inspiration. I bought 6 when I came back from the U.S but sold them all. Very much cheaper to buy over there, shipping is as usual the problem. If you need a contact, I have a couple in the U.S and UK. I bought some reasonable 50's ones in U.S for about £1.5k.

    BEAUTIFUL job though, very jealous!

    I love it. Just hope that if you ever sell the house, the buyer will too.
