    I really wanted a white back cover.. and not a case. Seeing that they are not in stock right now.. I painted mine. I'll buy a white and probably a bamboo one when they replenish the stock.. but here's my white One Plus. painted_one.jpg

    Pretty decent for a home paint job! I can't wait to see all the different kinds of backs they create. I like the aesthetic of the bamboo one for sure so I'm sure the next one will be sleek as well.

    Looks flush. And good looking, if I may add! Though I can barely still see the visible OnePlus logo.

    Updated original post w/ more pics. I used Krylon semi-gloss what I had in my garage. Sprayed 3 light coats. I don't expect this to be super durable as it's an interim solution to my really wanting a white back cover. I've painted several car parts over the years.. so I thought what the heck a phone is a piece of cake ;)

    What paint did you use? Is it still good up until now? I want a red sandstone back cover but they don't have it.

    Hm did you know that you can order a Silk White StyleSwap without NFC, side keys buttons, sim holder but with Cyanogen logo for 8,55 USD only? or another one with NFC, side keys etc but without CM logo for 20 USD approx?

    So this guy painted the sandstone white! Probably, he didn't know there's plenty of sellers on Ali and ebay selling them for less than $15

    You would loose the "textured" feeling of the case. Oh well.
