This is what the kitchen looked like through most of the 2000's - I stripped the wallpaper, painted, replaced the faucet, appliances, cabinet hardware and light fixture. It was better but I still didn't have counter space and the fridge just inside the door created a dark cave like feeling.

I sacrificed the pantry to relocate the fridge and added a couple of cabinets to add storage, more work surface and a better flow.
