Last summer, I was given a 3 drawer storage unit from my in-laws. I wanted to use it for my girls’ toys. But the thing was, the color of the unit wasn’t really girly. It was yellow, red, green, and blue. The color wouldn’t fit in with my girls’ things.
My husband and I decided to spray paint the storage unit. We took it outside and wiped everything down.
We spray painted the outside white and the drawers a dark pink. While my husband and I were spray painting the base, my can of white spray paint starting leaking onto my hand; it was very sticky. We ended up buying two more cans of spray paint into order to hide the blue. We used 2-3 cans of pink for the drawers. I used two coats to make sure everything was covered.
I’d say the storage unit turned out great. I love the color and the drawers work great to put my girls’ toys in. We have the storage unit in our living room. I have the drawers neatly organized with their coloring books, crayons, markers, cards, play dough, puzzles, and other toys. I can take items out as needed without having a big mess. It’s nice when they can open the drawers themselves yet.
What do you think of how the storage unit turned out?
