We decided to update our 1970's kitchen by painting the exteriors and interiors of the cabinets white and then using chalkboard paint on the interior of each door. It made a HUGE
improvement to the entire space. We also painted the walls of the room a warm beige, and painted the tile in the breakfast nook. We also painted the knifeblock and silverware organizer a french blue to add extra special detail to the room.
We remodeled a horrible 1970s style kitchen in a beautiful 1930s English Tudor. We did it on a reasonable budget and without tearing out the whole room. Every contractor we contacted said
it couldn't be done :-) but we found one that would help us. Our goal was to add as much architectural character as we could, on a budget, and only replace what was absolutely necessary. Come see what we did and how it all came together on The Inspired Room http://theinspiredroom.net/2009/02/16/adding...
