Need help with ideas


Ok so I work at an electrical cooperative so I know a bit about this stuff, I'm 19 and just got my own place and I have plenty of materials I'm just looking for ideas to do a little fun home improvement and I'm big into homemade unique ideas for ex: I created my own lamp out of an old meter box we were throwing away. If you have any ideas plz help

Make a cool looking Murphy Bed...when it is folded up to the wall...use the wall for a dart board!

Kind of hard to give ideas when I have no idea of what materials you have.

Materials are not necessarily a problem bc I can get materials. I'm just looking for creative ideas.

I don't want to dampen your fun, but I'd be careful about making homemade electrical appliances. With no UL rating your insurance company would have a good argument against a claim if there happened to be a fire.

There are all kinds of projects that could be done. The list would be endless.

Pick up a couple boxes of bandages when you buy the beer.

I agree with you about the insurance which is why I do not use the lamp except to show it off, it's more for decoration, I keep it on maybe 1 or 2min at a time
