Upcycling old computers

Following on from my post about upcycling old tvs, what about upcycling old computers? Miles and Aimee Harrison from their cutely named etsy store, Atomic Attic, have come up with a clever way to re-use old Apple iMac computers by turning them into pet beds. They empty them, clean them out, give them a polish and some heat-treatment to make the acrylic shine, plus they move the original speakers to the rear brace so it doesn’t rock. Then they pop in a comfy cushion and hey presto, a cosy resting place for a small pet. They even turn vintage suitcases into rather groovy pet beds as well. Stylish or silly? Cute or kooky? Whatever you think, you can’t deny it’s a great upcycling idea.
