If computer speakers had been invented in the 70's, this is certainly what they would look like! I probably should've spray painted them with a plastic fusion type of paint, but instead used what I had on hand and then added many coats of clear acrylic spraypaint on top. It will work since the speakers never get handled besides to turn up the volume (and then turn it waaay back down again after my ears have been blasted out)
Got a pair of boring gray speakers like Allyson? Get inspired by more photos and descriptions over at her blog post, A Splash of Color.
