I've decided that enough is enough - my new friend needs a home of its own! Tired of it permanently in residence on my dining table, I've taken action, and here it is - my computer's own, new apartment!
We found it on ebay, and the plan is to sand it down (don't panic - it isn't in brilliant condition) quickly, and paint it white, quickly, and distress it, quickly. All in the hope that it'll look vaguely Swedish, beautifully Scandinavian. Yum. That's the plan...then it should blend in nicely with the rest of the room.
I can't wait! Too many times, we've sat down to eat, and I've almost resorted to placing my plate atop the closed laptop, using it as a glorified table mat! I haven't actually done that, mind you...the look alone from the woodcutter would have knocked me stone dead!
