"I'm Only Good At Being Young"

Here is what I have been up to today!  I redid the spare bedroom of my rental house (which means I cannot paint Angry).  I chose lime green and teal for my little craft space and the rest of this room.  I love it so much!  The containers and comforter are from Target.  The teal rectangle on the wall is a piece of corkboard that I wrapped in fabric and hung as an inspiration board.  Do you see the first block of my jar quilt?  Whew, that is a lot of work!

I have had the purple drawers for awhile and I would like to paint them white or green to match everything else.  Has anyone had any luck with the made for plastic spray paint?  Or another way to fix these?  Thanks!

Looks like a great room for crafting! I have to drag my sewing machine downstairs to the dining room when I want to sew. Your space is very organized and I love the inspiration board.
I have used the made for plastic spray paint on some outdoor chairs and it worked pretty well but I needed about 3 or 4 coats. I found it was actually better to use a plastic primer spray and then just use regular spray paint. There are more color choices for the regular spray paint too. Just be sure you don't spray too closely otherwise you might get a blotchy effect especially since the drawers are clear plastic.
Good luck!

I know that when painting metal, it's recommended to prime it by rubbing it down with sandpaper to give a slightly rough edge (only a slight one), as this allows the paint to get a proper hold rather than chipping off every time you touch it with something slightly sharp, might be an idea for the plastic. Then you can get spray paints designed for plastics too
