I’m the proud owner of a great house that came equipped with the world’s most hideous kitchen cabinets: 

Horrible, huh? (Yes, that is contact paper peeling off the drawer. I know…ew.) A full kitchen remodel isn’t happening anytime soon, so I’m relying on the budget decorator’s best friend — paint — to make my cabinets more beautiful.

Since I’ll be giving the paneled walls a whitewash treatment, I’m leaning towards colorful cabinets to liven up my kitchen. I’m in love with the cool Caribbean blue of these cabinets designed by TD[S] Furniture + Cabinetry:

I’m also considering keeping some cabinets neutral and adding color in key spots, like this aqua island from Austin-based firm Loop Design

…or this bold retro oven featured alongside white and gray cabinets in this midcentury kitchen makeover by Savannah-based designer Celestino Piralla.

  7. The victory was supposed to usher in an era of Indian cricket’s global
    domination both on and off the field. However, both the wins that the Pakistanis achieved were achieved largely due to

    Also, there’s a lack of sex scenes and kissing scenes in the movie’s because the censor board in India
    is very strict : They’d even cut out important scenes in the movie to keep up with the old traditional
    mindset.
