Buy a bucket of paint and a brush and start painting!

Or... buy a 3rd-party chassi in another color. I'm pretty sure the admins won't like me reffering to stores on their site when they don't get paid for it, but it's not difficult to find. Try a few links that sponsor xbox-scene or google for it.

This is not as stupid a question as it might sound, and Firstly you would never use a "bucket of paint and a brush"
In general the rule to a good paint job is patience. you need a good dust free environment and some spray paint. Use a couple of layers of undercoat (make sure it's one that works on plastic) and then as many thin layers of paint as possible allowing each layer to dry before applying the next.
The main question with the 360 face plate may be how to mask off some of the bits, as unlike the xbox1 you cannot remove the individual parts of the face as they are melted into place. So for example the power button has the 'ring of light' and the power symbol that would need masking. As the power symbol is very small it would be difficult to mask, so maybe cutting off the melted joins and then gluing them back on after paining.
