Oak Overload

At first glance of our {soon to be} new home, the current decor is on the verge of being too country. Thank goodness for paint and our own personal style. Here's a sneak peek of the kitchen at the moment {Current owners stuff}.

Eventually we want to completely redo the kitchen. But until then paint will be our best friend in this kitchen. We want to knock down the two cabinets over the breakfast bar to open up the space. Paint the cabinets white and add new hardware. We aren't 100% sure what color to paint the walls but I'm thinking a subtle light grey color. And finally painting the wood ceiling white. As much as the oak wood on the ceiling is gorgeous, it's just not for me.
Some pictures for inspiration.

Something like this...maybe even slightly lighter?
I can't wait to get my hands on this kitchen!
