Should I Paint the Insides of My Cabinets?

Q: My husband and I are getting ready to update our dark 1970’s kitchen cabinets by painting them white and adding modern pulls.

But I have no idea what to do to the insides! Do I leave them alone? Paint them white? Paint them a different color? Contact paper? What are some creative ways to treat and update the insides of our kitchen cabinets?

Editor: Kim, we’ve painted the insides of cabinets and it’s not so fun. It’s a lot of work! But to open up the cabinets and see a pop of color is very rewarding. What about painting the insides a bright blue, or yellow?

Readers, any tips for painting, or not painting?
