All trim and pantry doors are white. Current cabinets are oak. I plan to paint cabinets with white chalk paint. Wondering if I need to do same treatment on trim and doors...or can they just stay white? Thanks.

    I would leave your doors and molding white

    I would say keep them white also for a white kitchen. You will have a beautiful kitchen in white that you can decorate with your favorite colors for the dishes, towels and decor.

    I agree. Leave them white. Then, you can indroduce a third color for Decorations.

    Is the chalk paint going to be scrubable? You may want to go with enamel.

    if the trim is in good shape and the white is similar tone to the chalk paint, I wouldn't paint it

      thanks, all comments seem to be unanimous...I am leaving it white! Hope to take before and after pics once I get started, but it won't be for a while!
