Some owners paint over their ugly cabinets to make them uglier.

All of those notches, bumps, and such on the cabinet doors help collect & trap dust & grime.

    Ex-lax bars of chocolate at Grandmas’ house, that’s what I think of when I see those dark brown cabinets!

    I’ll never be able to walk in or show another home with those cabinets without thinking “Mmmm, chocolate!” Thanks for that 😉

    Now that’s a good observation. It finally explains my urge for a Hershey bar everytime I see Mr. Long’s cabinets.

    Actually, the paint is a huge improvement. Still ugly, but something I could live with.

    Although the cabinets in the last photo are Long’s, I have to say, that kitchen looks great.

    Actually Mocha. And that kitchen does have a mocha thing going on. 😉

    I agree with Kat about the last picture. It’s kind of an eclectic mix of retro and modern. I think stainless steel appliances would make it even better. This one is not horrible.

    All of those squares are like doors within doors.
