The kitchen looks nice, but I am one of those "don't paint wood" people. That wood looked really gorgeous! Like the wallpaper though.

I am in love! That wallpaper is to die for! And I love open cabinetry when things are displayed so beautifully.

Now all you need it a new "retro" fridge to go with!

O my goodness this is an amazing transformation!  It really inspires me to finally fix my own kitchen.  Great job!

Hah. I totally agree, in fact! But I knew the kitchen seemed sooo small, I'd have to do something. (all the rooms in our house are verrry small). The layout of the cabinets are horrible- a couple being overlapped so that you can't ever use the entire strorage space. They were in really great shape for their age, thus my apprehension for painting them. However, we knew when buying that we were going to renovate the kitchen within 2 yrs, so I see this as an interim until we are able to do so. But, I have to admit, it worked better than I thought.

I think you did a fab job, pretty and retro, without being over the top or twee. I actually prefer the wood painted in this case as it works so much better and I think you've made a really good cohesive look. I can't imagine such a nice result without the wood painted.

I really like what you have done, it's fab.  Grin

I love how airy and clean the room feels!  I love lime green, and having it in a kitchen is awesome.   Cheesy
