MCM Home Improvement: A Few Authentic Details

By Sablemable aka Jan

I was checking Craigslist out the other day, along with Realtor.com and found a few MCM things to make your home the “real deal.”

First off, this wonderful wooden storm door, Early American style.   I think these doors have been sold as I couldn’t find them on C-List the other day.  Too bad, as I would have made the trek to Ionia for them.  If you’re doing your MCM home in Early American, look for these doors at your local Habitat For Humanity resale store.

Speaking of storm doors, I’m looking for 2-3 of this style below.  I don’t remember where I found this image (I forgot to write it down!).  These doors were seen all over my neighborhood at one time.


On Realtor.com, when searching for MCM homes to feature on Won’t You Be My Neighbor, I saw this fantastic stair/terrace railing.  The second image shows it through the patio doors off the living room.




Readers, do you have any authentic MCM details you’d like to share with us?

    Andreaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sure is, wish I had a house like that to put up those railings! BTW, that particular MCM house had been renovated. Yes, that ugly word-renovated. Almost as ugly a word as granite countertops.

    Love the green door with the glass – could so use it here! That deck railing is definitely drool worthy. Would like to see the rest of the house….I think.

    do you have any guidance about what kind of flooring would be best under a chrome/formica kitchen table with “cracked ice” top?
