my red cabinets - before and after!

I've had these red ikea cabinets for years and wanted to paint them pretty much the entire time I've owned them, but I never got around to it until this weekend. I had been dreading removing all of the handles and thought it would use up *way* too much spray paint, but it was much easier/less expensive/less time intensive than I anticipated. And I'm SO happy with the result!

The cabinets took three coats of paint and I think the whole project, not including drying time, took about one hour. I used three cans of spray paint, for a whopping total of $21. Not bad! I used Krylon paint in Blue Ocean Breeze. It's such a bright, fresh color, I wish I had done this years ago! :)
