Our Favorite Summer Projects: Den/Living Room Improvements

Jun 22, 2012

Summer is the time for making everything better at the home. It’s the perfect time to remodel a room, repaint and leave the windows wide open. This summer we plan to go over simple renovations and improvements for every room of the house, how to get the right cables for the job and make a quick fix when necessary. This week we’re focusing on the home office area.

Tired of staring at a screen all day? Brighten the room with a lighter color carpet and walls, so things aren’t so gloomy. Rearrange the room so when sitting at a computer, you face a window. This way you still have a connection to the outdoors.

Get organized. It doesn’t cost a lot to go through the old filing and storage cabinets and make space for what’s actually needed. Make sure that all of your labels are accurate and up to date. Don’t throw additional items into a drawer if they don’t belong there. Invest in new storage racks, such as

Set up the technology first aid kit. Running to the store for a new router or speakers is silly when you could get the right items from the start and quickly assess the situation and identify the problem. Make sure you have additional Ethernet cables on hand, cable tester to identify the problem and crimpers and tools to fix the problem.

Fix it Up: Dad’s Testers and Tools for Any Problem

Jun 14, 2012

Some Dad’s are the duck tape and super glue sort, where any and every problem can be solved with just a little sweat, grease and tape. It doesn’t matter what the problem is, a broken door, a leaky faucet, or even a loose thread. Other Dad’s appreciate using the right tools to solve every problem. Methodical, organized, he’ll fix the problem and do it right the first time so it won’t have to be ‘patched up’ every month or so with new tape.

For the Dad who is always on the ball, make sure his tool box is filled with all of the essentials this Sunday for Father’s Day, and every day you need to call on him.

Testers and Tools – Don’t risk electrical shock or unnecessary work when there are faulty or potentially bad wires at risk! The right testers will let him know exactly where the problem is.

Tool kits – Does Dad deserve a new toolkit or chest to hold all of his handy helpers in? A new chest will look great in the garage, and keep all the small bits nice and organized. Or maybe he needs a new complete service tool kit to do the job!

Power, & More Power – Dad should have the power to do whatever he needs and wants. Power extension cords are one of the most handy things you could ever give Dad. More power is better! 

Fun Summer Video and Audio Projects

Have an old overhead projector?

Rather than toss it, transform your own overhead video projector for big screen projections. You can take your old projector, transform it and with a power cable sit it outdoors so it can project into a large sheet or painted wall. What do you need:

  •  LCD Flat Screen
  • Overhead projector
  • Tool kit
  •   And to watch this video!

Want to redo the basement?

If even your summer nights are sweltering, it’s time to retreat to the basement where things will be cooler with a lot less effort and costs. If your basement is currently being used for storage or is unused, clear out the old or reorganize to transform your basement into an entertainment center.

  • Before bringing any equipment down, make sure your place is mildew resistant.
  • Run any wires down from upstairs and be sure to cover any new outlets or wires with wall plates and a fresh coat of paint to impress the guests.
  • If you’re looking for theatre style comfort, get a large screen and comfy couches to make the seating. If not, scope the yard sales for a large TV to put in downstairs for your heat escape!

Run a lower electric bill by entertaining outside or downstairs where the heat isn’t needed. What other projects do you have planned for the summer?
