Navigation Bar: Adding Boxes/Outlines Around Page Links

Hey all, I'm trying to figure out how to customize the navigation links to have a box or outline around them instead of just plain text. Basically giving the Home/Music/Merch etc. the typical button appearance. The end goal of building this site is for it to have a very "terminal" like appearance. Hopefully that makes sense.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!

If you have 7.1 you can change Nav links into buttons, 7.0 is a bit trickier here is a video guide that tells you how to do both:


Unfortunately this only tells you how to add a single button to your nav bar, which I know how to do. I'm trying to turn each individual nav link into a button, or at least learn how I can add a background behind each individual text item and/or an outline around each. However to get the result I'm looking for.
