Most people have duct tape in their tool boxes. Why? That super-sticky, cloth/scrim-backed tape is extremely useful.

For just a few bucks at your local hardware store, you can buy duct tape in a variety colors. Now, you can use the stuff in a variety of genius ways.

1.) Open a stuck jar.

2.) Prevent hardwood floors from being scratched.

3.) The roll is a mobile drink holder.

9.) Make simple and cheap name tags.

What A Guy And His Girlfriend Did With This Dumpy Old Camper Is Brilliant. And I Want It.

Home improvement projects can be a fun way to 1.) indulge in a hobby and 2.) add something awesome to your home. Mobile home improvement projects are the very same (if not cooler). An incredible couple found a vintage 1965 Serro Scotty Sportsman camper and decided to do some light tinkering (let me rephrase, they decided to do some heavy-duty tinkering that would make any carpenter weak in the knees). This is officially impressive.

This is the finished project, but it’s how they got there – and what’s on the inside – that you won’t believe.

This is what the camper looked like when they bought it.

It was… a mess.

They started by removing the aluminum siding.

Then, stripping the paint from it.

There was a lot of water damage underneath…

So it would need replacing.

Like, completely. So they knocked it down.

They removed the floor and began prepping the frame.

Priming.

Primed, waterproofed and ready to go with new hardware.

They added on a new floor…

Then, traced the aluminum siding into some new walls.

Ta-da! All cut out.

The walls set up and appliances placed for measurements.

Then, they began building onto the interior.

Some had to be built outside of the camper and moved in.

Removable drawers? Cute and functional.

Installing the front wall.

Then, the cabinets…

Making room for the water tank, cargo, etc.

They also added in a ceiling fan. Next, they caulked and puttied the inside of the camper.

Because then it was prime time again.

And the interior? Funkalicious.

Some insulation would be good.

And then finally installing the aluminum sides.

Masking and painting the window frames.

Ready for a paint job!

Complete with awesome orange stripe.

New (orange) decals.

Looking. Good.

A new door, windows and external light was added.

Glued together some strips of wood to make cool countertops. This is the finished product (after sanding and sealing).

Drawers? Check.

Running electrical wires (all 110v AC).

Testing the LED lights…

The finished product kind of speaks for itself.

Adorable.

What a beaut.

It looks retro (well, it is) but it’s completely updated on the inside.

If you’re anything like me, you’re suddenly feeling a strong urge to buy something old and turn it into your own new, remodeled creation. This couple definitely made it their own and have a pretty awesome finished product. I’d sleep in it.

This Guy Got Tired Of His Disgusting Garage. What He Did In There Is Definitely Awesome. Wow.

Attention all of you home improvement gunners. This is the ultimate example of what is possible. Seriously, check out this garage that was totally changed, and now houses a little something special. It’s something that’s totally disgusting, even a drain on a perfectly good house. But is a diamond in the rough… with only a little elbow grease. Right?

Look how disgusting this garage started as.

I’d never want to go in here, let alone PUT things in there.

But I guess that’s why it’s a great project!

But let’s be honest…it’s going to take a lot of work.

Once everything was cleared away, it was time to make it look a lot better.

And is a great chance to get creative.

Since it’s your garage, you can put up whatever you want.

And paint it however you want.

Then put in new lights…

And slick floors.

Looking much better. But we’re missing a final touch.

Ah…there it is.

Nice!

I’ll never be as creative as this guy was, but it certainly makes me want to go out to Home Depot. I keep promising that I’ll fix that toilet. That’s the same as what this guy did, right? Share this with others and give them a new Saturday project.
