How do I decorate my kitchen cabinets?

I (finally) painted all my old, mobile home, kitchen cabinets - phew! - but forgot to paint the insides of the doors. I have bought a lot of paper napkins to decoupage the inside of the doors but now find that they are not big enough to cover the whole space. The frame of the doors are very ugly. I would like to know if anybody has any ideas as to how to make these doors look really trendy using all my fabulous napkins? I know I can paint them, but hate to go to all that trouble. May just have to.

    Sally: Paint. ...in the long run, you'll probably be more satisfied!

    I would definitely paint the insides of the cupboards. It's more work, but I think it would be better in the long run.

    You could try contact paper as a fun accent.

      Hi, Carrie, thanks for your reply. Yes, I actually bought all the contact paper because I thought that would work, but it turned out to be very time-consuming to measure and match up all the sides that I gave up on that idea. I tried using a pattern but it was very confusing. Thanks anyway.

    By the way I painted all the cabinets with milk paint and am very disappointed with the results. You can see a lot of brush marks and the paint chipped off immediately, even before I used the cabinets. Won't be using milk paint again.
