I'm a big fan of that spray paint that adds a rock type finish to whatever you apply it to.  Maybe you could do the white plastic parts in that and find something to do with the actual drawers to accent it.  Or do the whole thing in it to make it look different.  I'm not completely sure it would stick but an interesting idea.  I like to use the paint for bases to paintings and such since it comes in a variety of colors and pretty close to just being a textured white.  

I like the idea on the other post about the addition of song or poetry lyrics.  Can be really pretty.  Maybe just doing it on the drawers?  Being the sides of the drawers are exposed, you could do a lot of graffiti type things.     Smiley

Well, what about band stickers or bumper stickers?

Most are vinyl and will wipe clean if you spill and you can always layer them for a funky look. I'd also recommend getting some fancy trim from a fabric shop and doing the edges with fringe or beaded lace. oooh!

You can buy plastic containers with flat sides and attatch them with velcro to the sides of the storage unit. You can use them to store pens and pencils, paper clips, crayons, etc. This creates kind of a craft-island. That's what I did after seeing it done for a family room on one of those TLC shows. It works well for children so that they can take the crayon box off and put it back on, it teaches them to pick up after themselves, kids love velcro!
  I also like the spray paint idea, try putting on some heart or star shaped stickers first, or masking some stripes, then peel off after the paint dries, it looks really cool. You can get beaded fringe at walmart for 2.00 a yard, applying that to the top edge or under the handles could look nice.
