As you can see, the cabinets were an orange, honey oak, and very plain, white laminate countertops and an ugly almond range hood. This kitchen does not scream, "LOVE."

        @OnBlissStreet wow, amazing transformation! I think you have successfully brought this kitchen into the 21st century. Love the white cupboards and the stainless steel makes them pop. I was curious as to what you did to the counter tops, they look amazing. Went to your blog but could only find the price for them. Did you replace them or paint them, looks like they were replaced. Thanks for posting very inspiring.

          This is amazing! The layout is identical to my ugly 80s kitchen, so it provided lots of inspiration.
