The kitchen at 742 Evergreen Terrace is one of the most recognizable in all of television. Joe Hamilton and Marcia Andreychuk of Calgary, Alberta are making that cartoon room real. They're remodeling their own kitchen, which was built in the 1950s, into a replica of that of the Simpsons' house. With blue countertops, a green stove, and corncob curtains, it's shaping into a nearly perfect replica.

The CBC talked to the couple about their project:
After that, she went searching online for corn cob-patterned fabric for the curtains. She lucked out and found the perfect match and sewed them herself.
Pulling them shut to show off their full effect, Hamilton proudly admits they're "tacky." Then he spews out some Simpsons 101 — that the cartoon family never actually closes their kitchen curtains. […]
The couple is saving up to buy new "retro-inspired" granny-apple green appliances.
In the meantime, they're covering their countertops, cabinets, washer/dryer, fridge and stove with colourful contact paper, which is similar to shelf liner.
After that, Andreychuk jokes they're going to transform their basement into Moe's Tavern.
