DIY Kindle Case

I’ve been really heavy on long essay posts about nothing lately, so I thought I’d break it up with a little DIY. Judging by this stupid, stupid blog name, I wanted to be Cupcakes and Cashmere when I first started writing, but long essays about judging people based only on their Facebook profile or occupation come a lot easier to me.

Either way, I’m stuck with this blog name, so I’ll try and live up to it.

So this is my DIY Kindle case. It started out black, I painted it with acrylic paint, taped it in a design, painted it again, then spent hours fixing the paint. This took me practically all day with meal breaks, and I would recommend that you just go out and buy a new Kindle case. I am poor, (which is why I have enough time on my hands to commit to such a project) so I didn’t want to sink the money into a new one. I guess this is a good option for the impoverished (who had money at some point to buy an e-reader).

I sprayed the case with some clear shellac- but we’ll see if this holds up. I think it will last  for at least a little while until I have some disposable income to buy a brand new kindle case of my very own (or maybe if I didn’t buy leopard print loafers today I could afford it sooner… who am I? I need to be stopped).
