MAKE Flickr photo pool member Digitalapollo writes – “I have always found beige keyboards depressing, so I decided to spice mine up with a coat of different colors of paint. Five colors to be exact. The bottom sports a flat grey with red flip-out stands. The top panel is metallic slate. The keys are painted with red latex paint (some with flat plastic specific paint). The new look makes the most bland Hewlett Packard look like something from the Matrix.” [via] – Link.

Tons of keyboard projects – Link.
