Easy fix to these 70's kitchen cabinets?
annman10April 30, 2014
We are looking for advice on either what color to paint these cabinets or any tricks to make them feel less dated. Vintage is fine, but cheap 70's look isn't what we are going for. Send any and all ideas! The walls are turquoise but we are gonna repaint them any color that will compliment these cabinets. Thanks.

DIY shaker style by adding MDF to the sides, top and bottom. Google has lots of resources.

I think you maybe should find new knobs, the color looks nice.

Definitely paint the soffit the same color as cabinets and replace knobs with pulls. A hood that coordinates with your other appliances will be a good update. And, corral the stuff on you counter onto a tray or two. That neatens things up a lot. Then sit back and enjoy that bottle of wine.
