Instead of replacing everything in this kitchen, the owners cleaned up what they had. They stripped the wallpaper and painted the walls a cheery yellow, added a gorgeous complementary backsplash, and added chic crown molding to existing cabinets. The main white shades help make this kitchen look larger as well.
