How to Renovate your Kitchen on a Budget - great post shows how this kitchen was given a whole new look with paint and mouldings and by removing cabinet doors to open up the space. This is so inspiring!
The cabinets will get a fresh coat of paint...same color, but probably something with a little more gloss. I was really happy with the finish of the Behr Kitchen & Bath paint I used at our old house. Supposedly, it dries hard like an oil-based paint, but won't yellow like an oil-based paint.
