Decoden Laptop Tutorial- It’s Finally Finished!

Jul 18, 2013 by

I have been trying to decoden my laptop since around 2008. How embarrassing is that! Especially because since then I’ve gone through 3 laptops and managed to finish… none of them *_*

But look, I finally did it!!!

    AHH!!! This is so perfectly perfect. I absolutely love how you Deco-Dened your laptop. It looks so beautiful and very elegant. And does the cameo really glow? You should’ve posted a picture of that, it would’ve been cool.

    I really like the tutorial too. I’ve always wondered how to properly “Deco-Den” a laptop without damaging it. I would never have thought about contact paper.

    I have two questions though. Do you think that Deco-Denning your laptop could make it prone to overheating? And, can you only do “Bling” or can you also do the type of Deco-Dening where you use silicone to create an illusion of frosting. Please let me know and thanks for sharing this lovely tutorial to the public.

      I’m glad you liked it! I wouldn’t see a problem with using the silicone but you’d need to be careful you could still open the lid fully. In terms of overheating, it would depend on the make of the laptop. My laptop has air vents, cooling fans and is made from aluminium to disperse heat but I would definitely not cover any of the bottom or any vents etc!

    Oh WOW! This deco laptop is beyond perfect! It’s probably one of the best deco projects I’ve ever seen! I bet it looks amazing with the cameo glowing!

    The protective overlay under the deco is an awesome idea! I bet if it get’s too beat up you can just peel it off and chop up the good bits for other deco projects!

      Thanks so much Caro! You’re totally right too, I did that with an old phone of mine, I removed the contact and chopped it up to get the good parts back :D
