have any of you painted your kitchen cabinets and cupboards?

i REALLY want to paint our kitchen (walls). the top part (not half. there is a wood "line" about 5ft from the floor) is nasty, old lady wallpaper, and the bottom is some kind of wallpaperish stuff, but is like really thick.  my husband said no painting because everytime we paint anything in this stupid house, it looks like crap. the paint never covers what is underneath, the designs always show through, if the underlaying stuff was shiny, you can still see the shine,etc. so, i have to live with my kitchen, looking like poo. 

we are going to remodel, eventually, so we will have new walls, and it will cost major money. we always try to remodel and it costs us 3x more than we thought. so, we thought, we would save money on cabinets and cupboards by buying the cheaper ones at lowes or home depot, that are finished. we were thinking of painting them, instead of staining them, because everytime we stain something, it looks like junk.

sorry for the long story, in the end, i was wondering if you have any pics of your painted cabinets? and any tips? and maybe what colors are most popular for doing so. thanks!

This is my kitchen BEFORE. We have been in our home a year & I just got around to painting the kitchen. Eventually, I would like to do more updating, but for now the paint has made a world of difference.

and this is the AFTER. I just finished painting lastnight.










Thank you!!
