Q: Hi, I would like to redecorate my kitchen — either stain or paint cabinets dark or perhaps go with a French Country or English look — I need help with ideas! Colors? Cabinet colors? And I'm on a budget. Thanks for the help.

Editor: New cabinet hardware, decluttering the countertop and removing the frilly curtain will do wonders to transform this space. Who has ideas for updating the cabinets?
