Just lots of colourful paint. The IVAR cabinets are so great, and I look forward to see all the different ways to repaint and remake them in the future.
It cost the cost of the IVAR cabinets (440 dollars), and the paint was all I had leftover in my stash. New paint in all these colours could be 150 dollars, but you can also be lucky to find cheap paint samples or mix your own like I did.
It took an afternoon to do, and I loved every bit of the process. We had fun assembling them and building them up on the wall. And the painting process was so much fun.
