I love the beautiful north light in my loft. It's in an old building so there are heat ducts and pipes and cool stuff, but there is a floating floor (I chose cherry) which looks nice but I like old, cruddy floors. My cabinets are light maple. I wonder how I can make them look more 'vintage.' Should I stain them darker, paint them black?? I like place with integrity, this one is cool, but not what I would have picked had I seen it before purchase. Any ideas how to make my kitchen look more flea-market-find cool and less dull??
