I moved into our house 9 years ago and have been living with the ugly cabinets that original to our home- I know this because of the ugly factor, but also the tags inside the cabinets state who made them and when! they are a dark wood color and I say "wood" because the finish is peeling off. It looks to really be MDF under neath. Is it worth painting them? I really hate them, and they make the kitchen so dark, as well as give the feeling of a trailer. I HATE them. Any ideas?
