If new cabinets aren't in your budget, painting them may be an option. If your cabinets aren't an issue, but you want to add a new element, paint certain cabinets. Options are endless with paint.
I use Wise Owl Chalk Synthesis Paint or One Hour Enamel to paint cabinets and furniture. The Wise Owl paint line is built upon their green focus - free of harsh chemicals and solvents so you can feel comfortable using the products around your family.
