Ideas for Remodeling 1920s Kitchen?

Good Questions

Q: Help! I've embarked on a mission to update my 1920s kitchen on a budget. As you can see from the picture, there are only 3 wall cabinets, limited number of base cabinets, and a strange yellow plastic-like backsplash that is glued to the wall. I love the look of Ikea’s Grundtal stainless steel shelves, so I bought 6 that I was planning to hang to the left and right of the wall cabinets.I also have a lot of light blue walls in my house, which I was thinking to bring to this room as well. I’d like to keep the vintage look, since my house has a lot of wonderful old woodwork, but I’d also love to have a modern flare. Do you have any ideas on how to remodel the kitchen to make it look wonderful and inviting without breaking the bank?
