I have had an idea for some time now, but getting the time to put it into a plan was another.
In my recent move, moving more stuff (my husband calls it junk) than we should have, there was an old tower computer. We've moved beyond it, but, yea, it made the trip across the country. In my quest to find my missing 12 x 12 scrapbook paper and heat transfer vinyl (score!), I found the computer in a box with a myriad of old cables. I was ready to let it go to the techno pile in the sky when. I found we kept sitting on it. I realized- this thing is pretty sturdy.
You've probably had one of these around your house too- kind of old and a little yellowed with age.
So I said, "Let the painting begin!" i grabbed some silver spray paint and painted the whole thing. I used a paint that was also rated to adhere to plastic.
So now what? Would we really use it to sit on?
SO, I got my handy Zing! out and got to cutting some vinyl. I decorated the sides and made a little flourish for the top. Here's a shout ave (berryone) for the awesome peacock file.=D
I put it together and put two quarter sized spots of hot glue to keep the glass in place. It seems pretty sturdy. The peacock design is on both sides of the tower.
I think it's kind of cool. Best of all it was free, and now it's useful.=D
