Computer Re-Do

I started this project by spraying the top of the computer (laptop) with Primer, then I wadded up a paper towel and dabbed on Pearl paint. I then spritzed on my favorite Glimmer Mist...using about 5 colors...ooooh the shimmer!!
I wish it showed up better...then I painted
and painted
Then spritzzed some more glimmer mist, gold and pearl, You can kinda see it in the upper left hand corner
So now I have to figure out what to do in the center. It has to be something flat, I would love some thoughts on that...It has to be something that my kitties wont want to bite off. LOL
*****************************************************
My hubby came home from work...I asked him how he liked the computer.....he laughed!! Said it wasn't very "professional looking".....I laughed... and agreed...it will be interesting to hear what my boss says about it.... Its MY computer... I'll let you know what he says. It will be a week or so. Stacey hasn't been over to see it yet, and I didnt tell her I did it!

WOW! I think everyone will be jealous, because now their computers are SO boring! It's fantastic! You're going to get requests from others to do this to their computer!!

What a great idea who knew? I agree with the others you could go into business. My husband would kill me if that was done to our computer. Maybe you could come up with some sort of removeable cover.
