I don't ever wanna gut and start over with this kitchen. I think that giving the granite-and-steel treatment to a perfectly great vintage kitchen is a travesty!
I would like to go back in time with a remodel though. Check out these awesome vintage kitchens! I love this picture because of that crazy combo of blue, pink, and wood. The crazy old school tile floor, which is kind ugly on it's own, fits perfectly in this style. That lady looks pleased about her big empty fridge.
Love this one, with the checkered wall and cool little rounded counter. I want a serving cart like that!
Here's a shiny and room kitchen, complete with teevee!
And finally, a great take on vintage done these days.
