It's amazing what a $17 can of paint and some time can do to a kitchen.
After living with the white kitchen (and *charming* mustard linoleum floors) for almost a year, I decided it was high time to make the kitchen look better. While the floor is, alas, here to stay for the time being, the wall color could change more easily.
And after (I'm afraid the pictures don't do the lovely deep orange with hints of red justice, but it's the best I've got):
I think a few plants on top of the fridge might be a nice addition as well.
I'm trying to decide whether or not to touch the cabinets. Part of me feels like enough is enough and the other part of me thinks painting the outside of the cabinet rectangle (in other words, leave the centers and the frame white and painting the middle) would be even better. Any thoughts? In the meantime I plan on recovering the wall clock to make it fit and make it more interesting.
