I'd like to paint a pair of file cabinets. Any suggestions for the best paint?

Powder-coating is too expensive and too much trouble--I'm on the top floor of a walk-up and don't want to cart them to a powder-coating place.
They are currently "stone" colored. I'd need to do it on my roof on a hot windless day, I suppose--spreading out a lot of newspaper. I'd like to paint them a tomato red.
I'm thinking not spray paint, due to possibility of accidentally painting the roof, and we have a kid, so I'm thinking nothing that will have a nasty toxic smell afterward.
Any suggestions for paint and/or best practices?
