As I was scrolling through my morning emails (of which there are sooo many) this particularly one caught my eye and made me chuckle.
Of course, I had to click on it to see what exactly this meant. I have seen redneck swimming pools (essentially a pickup truck with a plastic tarp liner filled with water) before, but this was a new one for me. This person, NKY DIY is a member of the Google + social media network, where folks add their DIY and home improvement projects to share with others, This particular member, NKY DIY (there isn’t any other information, so I really can’t tell you more about him…) has posted many interesting YouTube videos with various helpful hints on everything from sightseeing and gardening, to this particular DIY Redneck Air Conditioner project. Watch the video here:
It’s cheap (essentially the cost of a Styrofoam cooler, a small portable fan and a PVC pipe, plus some empty 2L and gallon jugs filled with water and frozen.), requires no tools to build and no Freon!! Of course, can’t say it will do much for your decor, but I am certain that all of you DIY’ers out there can make this look beautiful!! Grab those old wooden pallets and start building your own decorative DIY AC Unit, if you are fortunate enough to be needing an air conditioner right now (we are at 40 degrees in Boston). Have a (hopefully warmer) Wednesday everyone. Susan
