    you're very brave ! Try a vintage creamy white...not stark white.

    Warm vanilla with red accent pieces.

    I would go with a warm white or off-white. Behr has a gorgeous one called Soft Focus.

    Do two primer coats of Zinzer or Kilz to try to prevent the dark from the knots from bleeding through in a few years. That is a problem with knotty pine. According to my painter husband, it might even be wise to use an oil base primer.

    Or you could give them a white wash look. That way some of the wood grain would still show.

    I think a cream color with a white glaze looks really good. I had a kitchen done in that. Here's a few pictures to see what it looks like.
    , The white glaze settles in the edges and corners

    I’ll give you 2 months and you’ll be changing the color from white to some thing else...I did the white cabinets thing....pia. Never looked clean, certain hi touch areas always grimy.
