This is great! Needs a little color though. How about some vintage looking wall paper behind the back of the open shelving next to the refrigerator? Also, take the doors off the cabinets on the left side of fridge and hang the wallpaper there too.

In the event that Connie is still reading posts this much later...your kitchen took me back to my childhood several decades ago visiting my grandmother's house. My mother grew up in a very small cinder block house built by hand by her father around 1940 but somewhere along the way her family acquired that stove and your cabinets look very much like theirs! The house was an open floor plan too because that's all the small house had room for. The only real difference between the feel of your kitchen and that of my grandmother was that she liked blue instead of red. Kudos for doing what you wanted rather than what someone else thought you should do.
