Having done a project like these recently...think carefully about replacing the external-mount hinges with concealed ones. Mine were similar and we found that the thickness of our doors was not standard and we needed deeper, hard-to-find hinge mounts to fit. Since we own the home, we opted to rout out the back of the doors to accomodate hinges that were more readily available. The old hinges were so ugly and grimy that we were willing to invest the time. We painted the cabinets in a warm, light grey and used vintage, unused coppertone pulls and matched the hinges to the pulls. The kitchen still looks vintage but since the cabinets are sturdy and well layed out, we opted not to replace them at this time.

There are two of us and we stopped using our dishwasher several months ago during a minor kitchen remodel. We have found we are now using less electricity even though we hardly ever ran it more than once a week. I cook almost everything from scratch and we rarely eat out but have still found it is very easy to keep up with the hand dishwashing.
