Pistachio Palms, Las Vegas, NV: Triplex – Middle Unit
This back unit required basic interior paint, new floor, gold glitter ceiling and a restoration of the kitchen and bathroom.
The lower cabinets were shot due to plumbing leak issues. But the upper Youngstown cabinets were in great shape. A new L shaped countertop allowed more working space. The counters were the grey colored Sputnick design by Raymond Lowey that Formica reissued for a short period of time. we are grateful we got them when we could!
We were also able to salvage all of the original boomerang chrome handles!
The Bathroom was a major tile job with salvaged beige tiles which we accented with black trim for a very 1950’s feeling. The free floating sink was salvaged from a soon-to-be-demolished 1960s building.
Between two of the bedrooms was this strange movable wall on wheels. We replaced this with a more standard 1960s style folding plastic screen. Otherwise the bedrooms simply required paint and flooring.
