The look of this dresser makes my heart beat faster. Age-old, made of solid wood with elements of oak veneer.

Three cabinet colors in one kitchen? Why, YES, thank you!! What a combination of colors for these 1970s kitchen cabinets! This gal is definitely not afraid of color and wanted her island to be a turquoise stunner! The upper cabinets were painted in GF white Enduro Poly in Satin.
