We all have little projects around the house we need to do. Some of us have to remodel our kitchens, redecorate our bedrooms, or fix the plumbing in our bathrooms. This is important work that has to get done to maintain a functional house.
However, we also love working on and making things that aren”t entirely necessary. It”s nice to build things that would just be cool to have. These are the kinds of projects that some people would say are just wastes of time, but since when do you care what other people think?
1.) Frankenstein Light Switch – Imagine walking into your room and turning on the lights with one of these things. So cool!
It takes a little electrical know-how and some craftsmanship, but this would be an awesome project.
2.) Steampunk Keyboard – Regular keyboards are so boring. Give this DIY Steampunk keyboard a shot.
Of course you”ll need to pull apart an old keyboard, but if you find a cheap one that still functions, you”ll have a sweet Steampunk keyboard in no time.
3.) VHS Player Toaster – This is definitely the product of an ingenious mind. Or a crazy one. Or the mind of an ingenious crazy person. Anyway, this is awesome.
This one definitely will take some handy work, but how cool would it be to have a VHS player that makes you toast? What else are you going to do with that old VHS player sitting in your house?
4.) Lightsaber – I like to think that it is everyone”s dream to own a lightsaber. Now we can all have one!
It”s actually a pretty simple project, and one that I would recommend everyone pursue.
5.) Solar-Powered Mini Radio – This is some MacGyver level stuff. This little radio requires very simple ingredients, including a mint container.
In case you”re in a jam and need a radio, or just want to kick back to some sweet tunes, this DIY project is for you.
6.) Night Bike – This is an awesome idea. A glow-in-the-dark bike is something that would make bikers much more safe at night, and it”s easy to make.
Of course you need a ton of glow paint. Make sure you don”t spill it on the floor!
