DIY air conditioners, while handy alternatives to running an actual air conditioner, often look pretty ugly. With some paint, a fan and a bucket, though, you can make a DIY air conditioner that not just cools you but looks cool too.
The supplies for this cost under $US60, and Buzz Feed shows that the air coming out of it is a cool 17-18 degrees. The best thing about this project, though, is that you can paint it any way you like to fit in with your room. Or perhaps paint it to look like R2-D2.
