Modern Touch: Customized Modern Look- The new base cabinets, island, baker's table, and plate rack were built out of inexpensive paint-grade pine. The island gets a country-cottage touch from cheap beaded-board plywood.
Perk up your kitchen by replacing the doors on some or all of the cabinets. If you have recessed-panel doors, remove the center panel and insert reeded, textured, etched, or stained glass. If you have flat-panel cabinet doors, take them from contemporary to Shaker style by adding lattice molding around the edges and painting the doors. Or give the cabinets a makeover by painting them with chalkboard paint or dressing them with a textured wallcovering./
