Updating My Kitchen Cabinets

I need to update my kitchen and I do not want to replace the appliances. I currently have the old 70s dark walnut cabinets and doors have been painted white. The floor is white and I just removed all the wallpaper so the walls need painted. What should I do with the cabinet doors? What is a good color to paint the walls? Thanks for all your help.

Updating My Kitchen Cabinets

I would go with white. You can always hang up decorations to make your walls look festive.

As for the kitchen cabinets: you could update them by getting thin plywood made to measure, and then glue it on, carefully. Then you can do anything you want to the cabinets, paint them, or decoupage them (love that technique on serving trays, too). Just cover the paper up with three coats of varnish and you are good to go. (07/05/2009)
