Ok, my cabinets are ugly and cheap.  you know the cheap fake wood kind of stuff that is in apartments or mobile homes.  Now, my husband is crazy and doesn't want to paint it because he likes the wood look.  But, I can't handle it anymore because it makes the kitchen dark and ugly.  Is there anything I can do that is temporary, that will make the whole thing look better?  I'm thinking along the lines of using starch fabric on walls instead of paint.  I really think once he sees how much better it looks he will back off and let me paint them or whatever.  Help!

I don't visit craftster as often as many, so I apologize for the late posting. you could try contact paper. It comes in a variety of colors. Or you could use 3M sticky tabs (the ones that come with the hooks they make) and attach wall paper of your choice on the fronts. That 3M stuff is awesome and rarely hurts the surface they attach too.
