What a fun kitchen. I've never seen just the cabinets above the stove removed like this but it looks so cute. - why not take those doors off and give some color - wouldn't need paint, just scrapbook paper and double sided tape
White cabinets honed slate counter tops, and black handles. Love the slate counter, cabinet style with lots of pull-out drawers, and wood floors! Per This Old House: Slate is so dense that sealing isn't required. Buff out scratches with an abrasive pad.
