For those of you who enjoy DIY home improvement projects, we have some great tips.  First, you can change the layout of your furniture in any room. Sometimes, even the smallest change can make a big difference! One idea is to move the furniture away from the windows to let in more natural light. Another tip is to remove any unnecessary furniture to help make a room look bigger. Simply getting rid of clutter can also make a world of difference. A unique one is 3D printers! Did you know you can use 3D printers to add quirky and interesting touches to your home?

Currently, there's so much research and development ongoing in the 3D printing space. Hence, these machines are becoming ever more useful, capable, efficient, versatile and user friendly. While you and I may not be able to 3D print our own homes just yet, there is a lot we can create and customize with the help of 3D printers.


What you can do right now with your home 3D printers

 


Joshua Stellini, an artist and student at the University of Melbourne used his imagination and a 3D printer to create a unique two-in-one piece of furniture. He created a table that is also a comfy seat – a 3D table with cushiony, 3D printed seating surfaces. The device helped standardize processes and made labor simpler.

And what can you do with a home 3 D printer? Amazon has home printers like a 3D pen to create doodles in the air. They are abstract masterpieces born out of your own imagination! You can also print fabricated parts using PLA filament, a nontoxic resin made of sugar from field corn. PLA filaments can create customized 3D models of various objects like toys, models and miniatures and more with the bigger machines with better features.

You can also use scanning software to create a digital image of the object you want to create. For example, printing out a miniature of a vintage car (a nostalgic conversation starter!). Creating amusing and unusual toys for kids and grandkids is also another great idea. Another cool project is making one-of-a-kind jewelry. You can also make your own replacement parts and tools to your own required specification.

This article outlines some really cool household and home improvement items you can 3D print. For example: a wine rack, a drink dispenser, a portable combination safe, outlet protectors, unique penholders, bottle openers, coasters, wall mounts or hooks, even a shower head and so much more.

3D Printer Services

 



If you're ready to go the DIY route with a 3D printer, there are services that will do this for you. For instance Lowe's Innovation Labs. Lowe's brings you a simple and fun experiences to design and make items for your home. This helps you customize objects such as knobs and handles for your home – items that can be as cute, quirky or unusual as you want them to be.

For just $5 to $20, you can create unique wall prints, handles and other home improvement items. If you're willing to shell out more, there are more premium options. Like having a stainless steel, titanium and gold objects printed out to your specifications.  Lowe's printing specialists will help you choose the color, the material and the shape of the unique objects you want to create. So how about printing an out-of-production antique? Or perhaps you have the fragments of a broken object that you loved? These can be pieced together to create a 3D model for printing so you can replicate it!

Other organizations such as Singularity University Labs also helps in creating products for your business. Authentise Tech and Services is another service devoted to helping businesses find the kind of solutions they are looking for: designing and delivering 3D printing strategies and building tech to empower 3F printing and 3D design businesses.

We love to hear about home improvement stories and DIY projects that our readers share with us. If you have any to share about any DIY 3D printing projects that you were involved in at home or work, we’d love to hear about those as well!

It can be a great idea to create wall art from your own photos, particularly wedding photos. This is one of a kind, personalized wall art that is special to you. It's a home décor that you can make at home without any special equipment or knowhow. You can get great results, including vintage or distressed looking images if that is what you're looking for.  Here are some tips to get you started on creating truly memorable wedding photo canvases!

Picking the Best Photos

You likely had (or plan to have) a professional photographer to take pictures at your wedding. In that
fun wedding photos

case you probably have a great bunch of pictures to choose from. However, don’t pick only the most obvious posed pictures. Some fun ideas are: a rear view of the wedding couple, a close-up of the rings, the bridal bouquet or even the wedding shoes (one or both pairs), dad’s hand holding the bride’s as he gives her away, or a close up of the groom with his grandpa…. Pick photos that are unusual, meaningful, or which are interesting because of their angle, lighting, and so on.

You could also pick a series of photos which tell a story. You could also use stylized initial letters or dates (date of the wedding, the day that you met and so on). And don’t hesitate to add photos not related to the wedding – the bride or groom as a baby and then at the altar.

Another idea: how about creating a photo canvas out of your wedding vows? Especially, if you wrote them yourself! You could play around with textures, borders, filters, and tints (i.e. monochrome, sepia) as well. You could even break one image up into several parts, and print them out in parts, and then place them in the correct sequence on the wall to create a jigsaw like effect.

How to Make a DIY Wedding Photo Canvas

You will need:
  • Blank canvases (check out these specially-priced canvas, cloth and fabric canvases here)
  • The photos you’ve picked out (consider larger sizes or magnify one portion of a photo) in the shape of the canvas you plan to use
  • Mod Podge (matte finish)
  • Craft scissors or knife
  • Brushes (paint brush, foam brush and so on)
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Sand paper

Print out your pictures on good quality photo paper using the best quality settings on your printer. Now smooth the surface of the canvas using some sandpaper to make the Mod Podge adhere well). Coat the surface of the canvas with Mod Podge and position the photo over it carefully – make sure it is properly aligned and not askew. Let dry and set. Trim the sides of any excess using a knife or scissors. Now coat the picture with a very thin layer of matte finish Mod Podge (it may look opaque at the moment but will dry out clear, never fear). While that layer is still wet, use a spare canvas and press that down over the photo and pull away to get that canvas texture. Now let this dry again. Paint the sides of the canvas with black acrylic paint to finish.

Position your canvases on walls, doors, or other strategic locations such as the side of your staircase etc. Consider creating a collage of canvases on your wall. This can be a series that tells a story or a collection of pictures in a shape of your choice. For example, a large heart shape, one central photo with several smaller ones on the side and so on. Check out some fun, interesting ideas on Pinterest: here and here.

recycle ink and toner cartridges
There is no doubt that plastics, and their various applications, have revolutionized the way we live. It has increased our comfort and convenience manifold. Yet, it is also a fact that the disposing of plastics presents one of biggest challenges of modern living. Discarded cartridges ending up in landfills, is no solution. So what is? And how can your used cartridges help feed the poor?

Recycling and our Fundraiser

As a company we are environmentally conscious,  and are always striving to make a difference to the problem of plastic waste disposal. Our Ink Cartridge Recycling Program is the result of this. Earlier this year, we launched this program to both recycle cartridges and help raise money to feed the hungry.

We’ve been asking you to mail us your empty ink and toner cartridges. We recycle these for you by sending bulk quantities to GreenHippo.com, who pays for these cartridges. In turn, the money we collect from this recycling program goes to FoodForThePoor.org . This is a nonprofit devoted to feeding the hungry (read more about our Food for the Poor program).

What is FoodForThePoor.org?

FoodForThePoor is a nonprofit dedicated to providing food, housing, emergency relief to "the poorest of the poor".  Particularly, in the Latin American and Caribbean regions. This organization also strives to meet the physical and spiritual needs of underprivileged families. They do this by providing clean drinking water, homes, food and the opportunity to lead a better, more dignified life.

The result so far? FoodForThePoor has fed millions, built over one hundred thousand housing units, and provided $11 billion in aid. They have been key in changing many lives for the better. Please check out these inspiring and heartwarming stories from real people FoodForThePoor has helped:

Maudiel in Nicaragua lived in a shack held together with sticks, palm fronds and plastic which flood each time it rained.  Thanks to FoodForThePoor.org, Maudiel now lives in a proper home – beautiful, solid and safe for him and his entire family.

Choupette, living in Grand Boulage, Haiti had to face a daily struggle gathering water for her family. A treacherous road led to parasite and feces infested water. Choupette and her community now have their own reservoir that collects rainwater. They no longer have to struggle for water and Choupette isn’t sick all the time.

Wilson, living in Guatemala was severely malnourished at age 2. His parents barely earned enough to keep everyone fed. Wilson eventually had his stomach infested with parasites and his hair was falling out. Thanks to a stint at a Food For The Poor-supported nutritional center, Wilson is now a healthy, active little boy.

Bibi and her children lived in a zinc shack. Junick in rural Haiti lived in a crumbling, treacherous dwelling with her two children and mother. Leisha and her two little kids lived in a dilapidated coal shed in Jamaica. Their lives were also changed thanks to kind donors from the Food For The Poor organization. Which made it possible for new, safe, secure homes to be given to them.

There are countless other such stories where the efforts of Food for the Poor have managed to transform lives for the better. Literally, giving families and communities a new lease of life. We like to think that thanks to you, our readers and customers, our contribution to this nonprofit also helps to make a difference to someone out there. We hope you to send in your empty cartridges, so we can make a difference – to landfills and to the hungry people in the world!
