Hmmm -- that's a good question. I'd be inclined to leave them as-is, but it might depend on the style or the rest of your kitchen? Any chance you could try taking the doors off and see if you like having them open before deciding to paint or change them? I always thought it would be cute to do that and then put little cafe curtains across the front -- you could change them up without much commitment.

I do love the look of wood, and to me painted cabinetry looks cheap.
