But they're reeeeeally dark. We tried out the knobs, and they don't look THAT different from the '70s ugliness that was there before.
OK, you can't beat that old hardware for ugliness:
When I looked at cabinet hardware at Lowe's, I noticed that this '70s junk is the bottom-of-the-barrel, absolute cheapest stuff you can buy. It looks it.
I'm sure the new hardware will look fabulous once the cabinets are painted a delicious creamy white and the floors are no longer fake brick. And I think the bin pulls will make a difference.
Now to figure out what to do about those awful hinges ...
