kitchen remodel phase one.

We have finally bit the proverbial bullet with our kitchen and are making it happen. First step was painting the cabinets (post on the how to do that coming soon). Then we will do a backsplash followed by flooring. All major undertakings and all quite insane. While we had the kitchen torn apart we decided to spray paint all the door knobs as well as fix up our stools because they  had definitely seen some better days. So what do you guys think?
This project was bananas. But what bang for your buck (and labor).  What a difference!
To see what the kitchen looked like when we moved in see here it's a doozy!
