So the day has come that you are tired of looking at the same ol’ case over and over again each day and you just hate the idea that there is probably a few 100 of the same machines out there that look just like yours. But what can you do to remedy this? You can paint it! Painting the computer case is an easy way of transforming your PC to something that you will enjoy looking at and in the process have fun doing it. At first it may sound like a huge ordeal to overtake but with a few simple instructions and some spare time you can have something that you can call your very own.

Simple designs to complex images can be created in different ways, but they all have something in common and that is bit of work from you. Depending on the amount of work you want done to your case is how much effort you have to put into it. Once you get started you will probably find out that you will want to go a little farther here and there and that is great because that means you are getting the modding bug. The cost associated with creating your master piece is depended upon you.

So what might be the first thing you need to do once you have chosen a color and or a design for you paint job, preparing the case. To do the job right you need to take the case apart as much as possible so that you can paint all the edges, insides and misc parts. But there maybe a few of you that have an all black case and want to keep that color on the inside of the case or on the back side of the panels. You are more than welcome to do so and your work load has been chopped down to half or more. Those that want to go all the way with the paint you have some extra hours to put in. Taking notes or even better yet taking pictures of how the case is put together is a must do step. You see you might start off thinking that it will be a “weekend project” but as life happens it might be a week or more before you get back to the case and if you can’t remember how it goes back together you could be in for a world of hurt.
