Introduction: The Golden Key
I'll be honest, keyboards are boring. And most of us are at our desks 8 hours a day with these drab accessories. Gold, however, is not boring, and is exactly what our keyboards need. With just a little spray paint, your keyboard can have more carrots than a salad.

Step 1: Sand the Key
Carefully pop off your $4 key. Sand thoroughly with 180 grit sandpaper.
Step 2: Primer and Paint
Grab your trusty spray paint cans. Spray a round of primer, sand, and then spray a round of gold. Give it a bit of time to dry.
Hint: to make sure you thoroughly cover your key with gold paint, try propping it on top of a small dowel.
Step 3: Make Your Mark
Once your key is dry, pop it back into your keyboard and draw on the 4 and $ sign.
Step 4: Finished!
