I'm sure I'm not the only one who has a MacBook that's a little old and starting to lose its edge. Today, I decided to spruce it up a bit, and give my little Mac a sweet makeover that fits my style! Here is the BEFORE:
Before cleaning my mac, I made sure to research into what I should and should NOT do! You can see this info in great detail here and here on the Apple site! It's especially important to follow the guidelines on the site! We wouldn't want to do anything that could harm the hardware of a Mac, so definitely look into it if you consider cleaning your Apple Mac, keyboard, mouse, iPhone, iPad, iPod, etc! (You get the idea!)
Wanna know something kind of gross? Your computer keyboard, theoretically, has more germs than your toilet seat!
Not only are you allowed to disinfect your keyboard, but you are ENCOURAGED to! Please, if you take anything away from my post, please just make sure you clean your keyboard(s) ASAP! So before you do anything: 1) turn off your computer & unplug it from the power 2) grab a clean and soft cloth 3) squeeze excess liquid from the wipe before it comes anywhere near your keyboard! The hardware of the computer lives under the keyboard on MacBooks! Any liquid down there and it's BAD!
So once I got my Mac squeaky clean, I got out my washi tape!
I LOVE these patterns together a LOT!
As soon as I found them at The Washi Shop on Etsy, I bought 'em!
The really cool thing about standard washi tape:
it's the same width as Mac keys!
Say WHAAAT?! Yes! It was SOO darn easy to do this project!
I only had to measure the length for the individual keys.
Once I did that, I trimmed them down to size!
The finished product!
I think it's SUPER cute! Hands down, one of the easiest DIY projects!
I may even buy solid colored wash tape, so that I can do all of the other keys in pink! But for now, this is exactly what my sad Mac needed! Hooray!
