    This hack really takes the cake — frosting — that is

    My wife was making cake frosting and we didn’t have a hand mixer or power blender. And I thought using a whisk is too time-consuming. But I have an IKEA FIXA series cordless screwdriver/ drill, so, I made a hand mixer out of it and named it ‘FIXA…

    Forget buying, you can absolutely make this stylish raffia bag

    I decided to make the bag because this year raffia bags are in fashion and the first thing that came to mind were the IKEA placemats. It took me 3 days because I had to think about how to do each of the pieces and which one would go before the next.…

    RFID Shelf for little kids to select their favourite music or stories

    When you look at this living room, you don't assume I live in rural Nebraska, do you? Now that you know that, you assume my neighbors assume the worst. You'd be correct. There's one fucking good thing about Nebraska though, and it's all I can think o…
