These lodgings that are non-traditional would enable people to discover and immerse themselves within the magnificent landscape close to the Nam Poung hamlet.
Constructions like insect and bird nests inspired sleeping pods were suspended by these. The frameworks attached to nearby trees and are fixed via tight cords. They are made from lumber and bamboo, using a basket-woven foundation that goes up two feet, ensuring guests they possess some solitude. They are also protected by lightweight, hydrophobic material and mosquito nets line the inner part of the cottage. Two individuals can rest in regions that are different or, instead, the space could be joined into one big bed.
Along with the pods that are sleeping, Cole Company’s job contains lumber observation deck and a raised bamboo. It could undoubtedly be a trip that visitors would not soon forget.

And there was light. Boring old light switches and fittings do not actually do it justice though, do they? That single lamp shade is quite slow as it’s, but so much more can be achieved, from decorating the lampshade to illuminating a whole room with a star field effect, and even more.
We’ve accumulated nine inspiring DIY illumination projects that you can use or accommodate around your property. I believe you will agree, the results are stunning.
Lights in a Bottle
Recycling used glass bottles is no doubt the best way of disposal after a dinner party, but having the glass melted down and reused isn’t necessarily the best answer: upcycle them instead!
Keep hold of the bottles, drill a hole in the side of each stuff them full of Christmas lights? The results are certain to impress, and would enhance the ambience of rooms of all sizes. Follow these steps to make your own ambient wine bottle lights. You might even develop the idea, perhaps employing an Arduino and some colored RGB LEDs display useful notifications.
Create a Galaxy on Your Ceiling
Children love looking up at the night sky and pointing at the stars, so why not bring them closer?
This example uses fiber optics and when combined with a remote controlled fiber optic illuminator, you can get great results with different brightness and colors. It requires a lot of work with a drill and a trip into the attic (or room above) but you might forego this in favor of a large black sheet with holes for the fiber optics.
Here’s a great lighting project you can install for under $30 – a lighting system that enhances your media center, reflecting the dominant color of the movie or TV show you’re currently watching. As with the wine bottles project above (and to an extent any lighting project) the use of lights in this way will change the ambience of your TV or computer viewing area.
More recently, James build a more complex version of the DIY Ambilight with NeoPixels, which he demonstrated with the help of a psy-trance trip from YouTube.
With this build, you get the benefit of using a more advanced form of RGB LED strip and more accurate color reproduction at the edges, but both types can be useful, depending on how close you plan on sticking to the instructions or adapting them to something more suited for your purposes.
Reflecting on Infinity, and Beyond
Also relying on an LED light kit is the amazing infinity mirror, which requires an old frame or even the entire mirror, a lot of woodwork (check theseYouTube channels for woodworking help) and an IR sensor to activate the LEDs whenever someone is present.
Rather than using a standard mirror, the project uses two-way mirror glass, so while a small infinity mirror might be a relatively inexpensive build, the larger variety seen here and explained in this Instructable will probably be quite pricey, and set you back nearly $100.
Illuminate the Rain
Take your DIY lighting projects outside with this Instructable detailing the steps required to build an electric light umbrella!
The project requires 64 surface mount LEDs, and a simple umbrella (preferably with a hollow shaft and without the spring release) and uses a compact control pack to switch the lights on and off. The results are stunning, and you’ll certainly stand out!
Amazing Multicolored Lights with Bounce
The beauty of LEDs is, as you might have noticed from the suggestions so far in this list, their immense flexibility. This is thanks to their compact size, and in this DIY lighting project a string of Christmas lights is fed into a number of ping pong balls(144 balls for around $10 on eBay), creating a string of fun, colorful, diffused lights.
With a drill and a glue gun to hold the lights in place, this is one of the simplest but most effective builds in the list.
Atmospheric Cloud Lamp
Clouds don’t usually light up, do they? Well, yes, they do. During the day, clouds are illuminated by the sun, light bouncing off them on sunny days and sucked into the greyness of rainclouds on overcast days. And who can forget the way a bolt of lightning irradiates through the surrounding clouds during a storm?
This superb cloud lamp – again demonstrated by MakeUseOf’s James Bruce – shows just how you can do this for around $100.
Note that the build includes two Arduinos, and requires a bit of work with a jigsaw on the MDF.
The results, however, speak for themselves!
Stunning Cityscape Lampshade
If you’re looking for simplicity, why not look at what you already have lying around and adapt that? With an LED lamp (or even a standard one) all you need is black acrylic paint to coat the lampshade inside and out, a guide drawing of a city skyline (or any other image that takes your fancy) and a map pin.
Using Arduino microcontrollers, German DIYer Edo built this amazing coffee table with 64 RGB LEDs, capable of lighting up any room and looking, frankly, awesome. Edo doesn’t go into details with this, but we reckon it should be pretty straightforward to work out where to go:
I used one Arduino Duemilinove to control 12 TLC5940 Chips. There is one 5mm RGB LED in each of the 64 sections. The dimensions of the table are 50x50x12 centimeters. The cladding is made of self-brushed aluminum. In the future I’d like to take an Arduino BT to program the table wirelessly.
Normally DIY Projects look fantastic, but if you want to make your DIY Projects look expensive and fancy – you’ll need to go that extra mile!
Ranging from how to make hexagon dining table, turn an empty wall into an art gallery with framed marbleized artwork or even transforming your boring pillows into something super classy with golden brush strokes.
You may think can expensive do-it-yourself projects will cost you lots of money, but these projects explain how you can use budget materials that are affordable to get that expensive look.
Many of us loved playing board games are children and some of us still play them as adult, but the design of popular board games like Scrabble, Chess and Monopoly haven’t changed very much in their lifespan – but wouldn’t it be cool if someone redesigned these iconic board games?
A board game is a game that involves counters or pieces moved or placed on a pre-marked surface or “board”, according to a set of rules. Games can be based on pure strategy, chance (e.g. rolling dice), or a mixture of the two, and usually have a goal that a player aims to achieve.
Early board games represented a battle between two armies, and most modern board games are still based on defeating opposing players in terms of counters, winning position, or accrual of points (often expressed as in-game currency).
Today we’ll be featuring some brilliant and crazily cool redesigned classic board games – many of them are available to buy! These restyled board games look amazing and are quite beautiful!
A Swedish student named, Oskar Pernefeldt from Beckmans College of Design in Stockholm decided to take the task of branding the Earth’s own flag as his graduation project. The end result is a simple but beautiful white geometric design on top of a cobalt blue background.
With 196 Countries in the World, they each have their own unique flag to represent each of them it’s only a matter of time before our planet has it’s own flag! The International Flag of Earth looks amazing! and will surely be a brilliant flag when the human race explores the depth of space!
The final design wasn’t an isn’t task, Pernefeldt’s design proposal explains the science named, vexillology. He decided to take this into consideration when creating the International Flag of Planet Earth. He explains:
Centered in the flag, seven rings form a flower – a symbol of the life on Earth. The rings are linked to each other, which represents how everything on our planet, directly or indirectly, are linked. The blue field represents water which is essential for life – also as the oceans cover most of our planet’s surface. The flower’s outer rings form a circle which could be seen as a symbol of Earth as a planet and the blue surface could represent the universe.
Do you want to revamp your entryway but don’t know where to begin? The entryway is one of the most important features of a house as it’s the first thing people see, so why not spruce up your entryway with these simple ways to greatly enhance your entryway including inspiring examples!
An entryway is a hall that is generally located at the front entrance of a house. An entryway often has a coat closet, and usually has linoleum or tile flooring rather than carpet, making it an easy-to-clean transition space between the outdoor and indoor areas. Many houses do not have an entryway; in these the front door leads to a foyer, or directly into the living room or some other room in the house.
Many suburban American houses have a mud room, a casual, generally secondary entryway intended as an area to remove and store footwear, outerwear, and wet clothing before entering the main house. As well as providing storage space, a mud room serves to increase the cleanliness of a house proper.
