This looks like my kitchen. I'd love to take pictures and send them in. I'm living in harvest gold heaven.

Thoughts that I've had that might translate well:
new hardware on cabinets
instead of painting over the wood why not re-stain in a lighter color?
take the doors off the large long top cabinets and paint with the new wall color
no wallpaper/carpet/new appliances/new sink.
backsplash and countertop.
no curtains on the windows or new window treatment.

I guess that my personal philosophy has been to try to work with the way that my kitchen was built and not against it. I have learned to embrace the mid-century modern elements that I want to keep while modernizing some other elements. Small changes can add up to a much better look and feel. Apartment Therapy and the Kitchn have a lot of pictures of kitchens and homes which can serve as inspiration. Plus there's always the thrill of the hunt when you're out looking for vintage items.

Have fun!

would it be most wise to vacuum seal things like strawberries and peas since they have a tendency to get some nasty freezerburn/frost?
