My moniter and computer are black and my keyboard and mouse are white and it bothers the hell out of me. I would really like to paint them, any suggestions, because i would rather not end up with really crappy looking cracked computer equipment a month from now  Grin

I'm very fond of stickers when it comes to accessorizing my computer toys.

My hubby painted his mouse a year or so ago w/ the new spray paint made for plastic,(krylon maybe??) and it turned out great. You would never know it is paint--the paint bonds with the plastic somehow. He just taped off the parts he didn't want painted and sprayed the rest. After a year or so it has no scratches at all--now as far as the keyboard I don't know b/c of all the keys. Hope this helps.

You should give painting your computer stuff a try! I used to work with someone who painted an external hard drive with that fleckstone (granite, to be specific) spray paint. It looked COOL!

I think the keys pop off most keyboards, making for easier painting. Might be a tedious and involved project, but I would love to see the results!

Good luck -

is to burn and destroy ordinary concepts
and to substitute them with new truths
that run down from the top of the head
and out from the heart.
