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.

This Pecky cypress wood has naturally occurring holes that are perfect for this project.

Being the typical home persons that some of us are, we just couldn't leave the comforts that we have at home. As they would say, "Home is a not a place but a feeling," and indeed, we feel different sorts of emotions when we are inside our favorite spot - at home. This is one of the reasons why we beautify and improve our place. Those who have the means spend more to live in  big and grand houses while some would settle for a simple yet comfortable one.

The owner of this house did quite an awesome job coming up with these and sure is a master of maximizing space and turning it into a hotel-like haven. A 320-square-foot cottage is not so much but this is just genius! We can only imagine how they managed to fill up everything inside,a whole lot at that.

It looks so little and simple from the outside.

He made an incredible air-conditioned bed for his old dog out of frozen water bottles, PVC pipe and fans. His amazing invention provided his dog cool air by about 10 degrees making the dog feel comfortable while he lies on the comfy makeshift bed.
