Re-doing an Ikea Cabinet

So I had two of these 3 drawer cabinet thingy's from Ikea in my office at work.  They were so bland - that blonde laminate color stuff and 3 white drawers with silver handles.  I decided they needed a makeover.  That laminate stuff is terrible to try and paint, but they  just sit in a corner in my office, so I think they will be ok.

I used Krylon's Periwinkle blue and sealed them with a gloss sealer to try and help the paint from peeling off the laminate stuff.  It seems to be working pretty good.  Then I had some pretty scrapbook paper that I mod podged to the front of each drawer face.  And I kept the same silver handles.

Overall, I really like how they turned out.  I didn't take any before pictures, sorry about that.  So I'm attaching a picture of a similar cabinet from Ikea's website.

I'm off for a busy errand day... Happy Thursday everyone!
The pictures are terrible, I know, I had to use my cell phone.  I'm trying to work on my picture taking ability, so bear with me.  But you get the general idea...

I have this exact cabinet at my makeup table. It should be fine if you used a good primer.
