I confiscated the drawers for myself. I sprayed on some primer for plastic spray paint on everything. (Lowes, less than $6). After an hour, I was able to put on the spray paint. I already had the gray and blue, but they were less than $4 at Lowes.
I am totally in love with how they came out! Now to figure out what to put in them.
*note, I did not spray the inside of the drawers. Just the outside.
