1.You want to save moneys on your next Build ?  
 
2.you found your case boring =/ .
   .. or just like others !?!   

 
3. U just build tower for other's ???

  
here some thing interesting :

There is a little and verrrry simple Solution : Paint-it :) !!!

I tryed some thing and it's worked nice :  i taken some's 1 dollar $ Paint can's for car !!!
And i painted an old-normal Case white, to Black and Blue-Electric Awsome personal case !!!
 

mine looked like this

i made a degrade between the blue & black and the result was cool ( i have no picture. )  
u have to spread the paint on a more distant to make a Degrade between colors !
The top was all Blue, and the behind blue in top and-go to black in the down of the case. 
the panel to open it was more black ( litlle blue on the down corner to go with the front ) ! & the front was black on higher and go blue on the down. Smile was a nice paint.

With two simple fan one green and a purple, The look of the thing was looking sooo nice !!    

Its simple... and at low cost, if u found paint in spray  !
 
you want to transform an normal case that no one want in some thing u can sell easy ! or to build a tower re-sell-it, cool gift, there the idea : paint normal case with car's paint  ahahah Wink  !!!   
 

( u can also make cool things like ...:  take a sheet or carton and cut a logo, put it on the case and apply the paint ...) 

 
Ps: But it can scratch if you dont put a protective varnish, and almost .. its can scratch... but not to much !

 

 
its a cool idea no !? :
 Yes say what u think about it,or post picture if you tryed it ahahaha !

What type of paint did you use? Ive been looking into painting the inside of my case but haven't decided on what paint to use.

My rig - I7-4770K, ASUS Z87-A Mobo, 16 GB Corsair Ram, AMD 7990 GPU, CoolIT AiO Cooler, NZXT H630

the bottle-can was exacly like this if i remember good X)  

they was many colors of these type on tablet : http://www.google.ca/imgres?um=1&hl=fr&biw=1366&bih=647&tbm=isch&tbnid=lVWkii4P_ODiMM:&imgrefurl=http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Carplan-Car-Vehicle-Aerosol-Spray-Paint-Old-English-White-24-400ml-YAB007-/281049704400&docid=SckVpVA7UW5cOM&imgurl=http://images.esellerpro.com/2565/I/230/7/020347.jpg&w=1000&h=1000&ei=Xdt-UaObE4eZ0QHbnYC4Cw&zoom=1&ved=1t:3588,r:40,s:0,i:208&iact=rc&dur=669&page=3&tbnh=173&tbnw=173&start=39&ndsp=22&tx=103&ty=89 .  
and its for car,but it apply great both on Plastic and metal Yes Cool

 
Do it on exterior or put an large plastic on the ground or large coverage ! ( put a mask, or protect our face ^^' )  
and also prepare tape to dont paint part u want clean Wink !

dont forget to buy many varnish ( 1 can of varnish almost two ) , and this cost a little more than these cheap paint can, almost try it before on something else to see result of paint and paint + varnish lol. 
 
 
( i dont know if the paint can fall at hot temperature ... i belive not ... its touch up Paint for cars little fix ).
