By the end of this year, people will be able to make their own skateboard design using a few simple steps: a skateboard, some PVC tubing and some sandpaper.
The materials needed to make these can be purchased online or at hardware stores.
The best way to get started, however, is to learn how to make your own DIY surfboard and build it yourself.
Here are the steps involved.
If you’re new to making DIY surfboards, check out our article How to Build a DIY Surfboard with PVC Tubing and Sandpaper.
Once you’ve mastered the basic construction of a DIY surf board, you can then add sandpaper, paint, a couple of feet of PVC tubing, a few screws and you’ve got a DIY living room.
It can even look more like a living room, which is the purpose of the DIY living area design, says design blogger Andrew Cottrell.
“The only way to really get creative with DIY is to spend a little time on it and see how it all works,” he says.
“It’s like trying to paint a room using your imagination.”
So how do you get started?
Cottrell suggests painting a room in your studio with acrylic paint and using some sort of paint sprayer to get the right level of gloss and colour.
The easiest way to paint is to spray the room with a clear solution, then use a paintbrush to paint over it.
If you can get your paintbrush right, it will get very easy to paint the room, and there’s no need to buy anything to do it yourself, Cottrel says.
You can also get a paintbrushes from the hardware store or DIY surf shop.
Here’s a quick tutorial video to get you started.
The DIY living areas that are popular these days can look like a traditional living room or kitchen, but they’re more like living rooms with lots of furniture and decor, and it can get messy.
So Cottrill suggests that you buy an empty living room that’s a little bit larger than your current living space, and paint it a white colour to create a living space with a lot of furniture.
“For the dining area, I’d recommend painting a dark, muted colour, and using a paint brush to paint that,” he adds.
For the living area, the most important thing is to be careful when it comes to the paint that you use.
“You should use a clear sprayer, not a clear-to-black paint, because it’ll stain the board, and the board will be more difficult to clean and maintain,” he explains.
“When you have a paint that’s not as strong as you’d like, you’ll end up with a mess.”
If you’re planning on painting your DIY living rooms, be sure to read the detailed instructions for each section below.
To paint a DIY room, use paintbrush, paint stick and paint gun.
Make sure the paintbrush is clean, but not so dirty that it will stain the boards, and use a brush that’s about 3cm thick.
Make a base layer of paint using a clear paint spray, then paint the top layer using a stick or paint gun, depending on how big the paint is.
This layer should be about 1cm thick, and if it’s too small, you may have to use a mask to cover up the area.
Take a few minutes to get everything right.
Then, take the next step and start painting.
If everything is perfect, you should see the top coat in the centre of your painting.
You can paint with a stick, paint gun or paint stick stick.
“A paint stick is a paint stick with a handle,” Cottrier says.
If it’s a stick that has a handle, you will need to hold it with one hand, and then place the paint stick on the paint base using the other hand.
“Once the paint has been painted, you’re ready to use the stick,” he continues.
“If you’ve made a good first impression, the stick will hold your paint.
If not, just paint over the areas where the paint washes off with a clean brush and try again.”
Once everything’s perfect, paint the other two sides of the room.
The two walls of the living room should look like this.
Using a paint gun and stick, you paint the outside of the walls and the living areas.
When it’s all finished, you need to add a layer of glue to the base of the boards.
Finally, it’s time to put it all together.
Use a paint sponge and a stick to cover the entire area.
Then apply a layer using the stick or sponge, then the sponge, and repeat the process.
Cotta and sand paper are the best choice to finish up the design. Have fun!
