Well, I took the leap. I painted the cabinets white. When I originally painted the countertops, I chickened out on the cabinets. After 6 months of debate, I convinced myself to do it. The cabinets were orange-y and all the other wood in the house is dark wood I was scared that I would not be able to paint them correctly and they would look horrible and then I would be stuck with no doors on the cabinets.
I like the way it turned out. It seems much bigger and 10 times cleaner. Its come along way from Cow wallpaper borders and blue counter tops!
