Here's The Simpsons Kitchen in Real Life
"Who wouldn't want corncob curtains?"
A Canadian couple is remodeling their kitchen to look like the one featured on The Simpsons.
CBC News reports that Marcia Andreychuk and Joel Hamilton, from Calgary, wanted to "retro-vate" their kitchen. Being Simpsons superfans, they decided to model it after the kitchen seen on The Simpsons--and it didn't hurt that the rough layout of their existing kitchen already matched up.
"All the elements seemed like it would work to convert it into The Simpsons kitchen," Andreychuk said. "Who wouldn't want corncob curtains?"
The couple didn't break the bank on their renovation, as Andreychuk says she spent only $20 for the blue countertop. To give the stovetop its iconic look, she used green contact paper. As for the curtains, Andreychuk found the corncob-patterned fabric online and then sewed the curtains herself.
Overall, since the kitchen already mostly resembled the layout of the one on The Simpsons, the renovation job is more about changing the colors of things than anything else. For a closer look, watch the video below.
You'd have to be a dedicated Simpsons fan to do this kind of thing, and that's exactly what Andreychuk and Hamilton are. For his part, Hamilton claims he re-watches every episode of the show released so far every year. He also finds the show to be therapeutic.
"The Simpsons for me is actually a baby blanket," Hamilton said. "If I'm not feeling very well, if I'm depressed, if I have a bad day--I come home and pop The Simpsons on and I'm 10 years old [again] and everything is alright."
