Electronic devices certainly do make our lives easier, but you've got to admit, most of them lack any personality.  Why tote around a boring ol' laptop that looks just like everyone else's when you can dress it up for just a buck?  Josie from Fine & Feathered found some woodgrain contact paper at the dollar store and knew it would be perfect for making a DIY laptop skin.  Her computer went from looking past its prime to as good as new with just a little measuring, cutting, and sticking.  You'll be the envy of the entire coffee shop with one of these slick looking machines sitting in front of you!  [how to make your own woodgrain laptop skin]

Project estimate:

  • Contact paper, $1 and up
  • Craft knife, on hand
  • Ruler, on hand

Total, $1 and up
