PAINT THEM! I have the standard European cabinets with the oak trim and I can’t stand them. When I bought my first home I could not afford to redo the kitchen so I spent a great deal of time researching how to properly paint over that type of surface. I cleaned and degreased them very well using TSP, primed them using Zinsser primer, and then painted them with a high quality (Ralph Lauren) paint. Three years later and they still look great! Glidden also has a new “self leveling” paint out called Glidden Trim and Doors that has a nice finish and works very well, I have used it on a piece in my house. Good luck!

I say go with it. Find some other bright magazine covers, art, etc. Frame them all in black and make it look like intentional pop art. Not only will it be a great conversation piece, a one of a kind art display but your boyfriend will also really appreciate it!
