Growing up, I was a walking, talking prune.
Every year, all summer long, if you needed to find me, you’d know to look no further than our little pool. The only thing that could drag me out were trips to the bathroom, a drink of cold soda, and of course bedtime.
But if I knew about this incredible trick, I don’t think I ever would have gotten dry.
Without a doubt, there are tons of amazing do-it-yourself tricks out there, but this one has got to be one of the most brilliant I’ve ever seen.
And to do it, all you’ll need is a cheap plastic tub, a pool noodle, and a bit of string to make your very own floating cooler.
It costs less than $5 and takes only about 30 minutes to assemble. Seems like a pretty good deal for a revolutionary trick, right?
Who knew an old pool float could have so many incredible uses?
If you’re looking to transform your summer, look no further than this amazing DIY project from Instructables user Macgeek.
To begin, you’ll need a cheap, medium-sized plastic box.
You’ll also need a foam pool noodle. These can be purchased at most dollar stores.
Cut the noodle up into four pieces, two long, two short.
Next, grab some waterproof nylon rope and cut a length of it.
Slip the rope inside the noodle holes and tie the pieces together.
Then wedge your plastic box inside the pool noodle rectangle.
Grab some ice and a few of your favorite beverages, then head to your pool.
