The French Provincial Cabinet - To Wallpaper or not to wallpaper?

+90
Answered
I just picked up this piece which is made in 1960 and is solid wood. The colour of the wood is not that thrilling and it has a few dings here and there. I also need to replace the hardware. Since it holds no real value as a refinished piece, it would be a perfect candidate for a makeover. I think I may paint this in grey or blue in a satin finish but am wondering whether I should wallpaper the backboard in the china cabinet. I love that look but do you think it distracts from the items inside?
