Will Painting Original Trim Lower Resale Value?

Will Painting Original Trim Lower Resale Value?

Q: Our home is filled with natural wood trim, but the trim isn't in the greatest shape (lots of nicks and paint splatters from previous owners) and is lighter in both of the kitchens and bathrooms than the rest of the house. I've wanted to paint the trim white for a few years now (and my husband has no preference) but I'm hesitant to do so in case it would affect the resale value.
