Plastic Storage Doesn't Have to Be Ugly

Spray paint, pretty napkins, tissue paper & fabric turned these uglies into beauties!!!
Mod podge, napkins, & spray paint was all I needed to turn this otherwise dull plastic storage with drawers into something that makes me smile.
Pretty tissue paper, zebra print fabric, mod podge and a little ribbon brightens this one. For now they are storing my crafts in a closet, but my plan is to take over a small room in our home and make it my own little crafting room.

    You removed the drawers and then spray painted the frame, right? Did you have to do any prep on the frame or the drawers? Does spray paint adhere well to that type of plastic? I have a very similar chest and it is begging for a little DIY.
