Customizing My Cute Pink Computer Tower ^.^9:48 PM
As a graduate of industrial design, I have a huge appreciation for the design of products. I'm someone who likes to surround herself with things that are visually pleasing and not just eye-catching, but things that make me smile. My kitchen is filled with shark-shaped oven mitts, tea towels with surfing dinosaurs embroidered on them, and a toothpick holder that looks like a rabbit coming out of a hat. You could say whimsy and cuteness are the themes of my style.
After years of working in the shop cutting, sanding, painting, sawing, and gluing, I've really come to appreciate things that are handmade and personally customized. This is why I decided (against the better judgement of my husband--oh you of little faith!) to customize my freakin' amazing computer tower. I spent so much time nerding it up on the computer that it made perfect sense to me to make it pink and girly! Mind you, it's not finished yet but I wanted to show you a little peek at my process and where it's at now. :D
This is what I started with, the Antec Skeleton computer tower. Pretty cool design but very masculine, don't you think?
I decided to record a video showing the SUPER AWESOME EFFECTS of the color-changing fan and the sparkly rainbowy goodness of the finish. Please do watch as the photos themselves do no justice to all of the crazy lights playing around the real thing. :D
