This Guy Transformed His 396 Square Feet Garage into an Awesome Apartment. This is So Cool!

He wanted to upgrade his garage into a livable space and decided to convert it into an apartment.

To add more value to any of your property, transform it into a decent and very attractive place. However, such enticing scenario entails bigger investment. But if you are the type of person who usually wants to cut the cost and avoid spending so much money, you might want to consider to “Do It Yourself” some parts of the renovation. It might lessen the expenses, but it can be pretty much costly in terms of your time and effort.

Mikey McCartney, shared his photos and story on how he managed to transform his 396 square feet garage into a nice apartment. The place required a lot of work since it did not have yet the plumbing and electricity. Installation of the basic amenities like bathroom and kitchen also posed a big concern. It requires extensive renovations to have modern conveniences such as internet and cable TV. The perimeter walls were completely modified to add insulation, doors, air-conditioning and, of course, windows.

Check the incredible works of Mikey. Fortunately, he took photos of the “then and now” moments of the garage for you to see the amazing transformation!

This was the side view of the Garage before the renovation.

Ever Heard of Scramboiled Eggs? Kitchen Hack Shows Us How to Cook It!

How to scramble hard-boiled eggs inside their shells? Watch this video..

By

Aside from making our everyday lives easy, what fascinates me about these hacks or tricks that we see online are the great minds behind them. Going through any process is tedious and knowing how to simplify everything with the help of these people can be fun.

Another result of people's ingenuity are these Scrambled Hard Boiled Eggs or what they now refer as "Scramboiled" Eggs. By now I bet you're already skeptical about this whole thing but wait 'til you see how it's done and you might want to give it a try.

What you need--a long sleeved top, a few fresh eggs, rubber bands and a little warm up for some arm-spinning. The egg should now be inserted to one of the sleeves, placed at the center and both sides are tied with a rubber band. Take the sleeve on both hands, wind it by spinning several times and then pull both ends tightly. Spin the eggs rapidly as it unwinds and make sure to do this a dozen times for each egg. Lastly, boiled the eggs and you're done. A little warning though, don't spin too hard or your eggs will go flying and you can't blame the internet....

I personally love everything that is DIY and I even follow different pages and sites where I can learn, get some tips and instructions. It just brings out beauty and color to what seems usual and ordinary. From greeting cards, garlands, backdrops to home decorations and furniture, DIY is the ultimate lifesaver!

Matt Brown, a certified DIY-er and designer came up with something unique and refreshing for an invention. If you haven't heard about the glowing table, then prepare to be amazed. Yes, he is the man!

The beautiful glow-in-the-dark table is made out of Pecky Cypress wood planks, blue "glowing" powder and resin. Only those three materials are needed plus some knowledge about woodworking and you're  all set. According to Matt, naturally formed voids in the hardwood are filled with photoluminescent  glow-in-the-dark powder mixed with clear casting resin creating an extraordinary table that glows in the dark after charging up on sunlight. This vibrant shade of blue can shimmer in the dark for periods of up to 20 minutes....
