We just purchased a home and it needs some work. The kitchen is the original from the 70's. we won't be able to remodel the lichen for another couple of years; however we would like to paint the cabinets a darker color so that's its a little easier on the eyes for the time being. Any ideas that won't be so costly? Also, how can I decorate the back side if the cabinet over the counter. It faces the dining room and it looks a little plain.
