Roofers are working when music comes on. Man in blue quickly brightens everyone’s day

Andrew Wilcox was helping build a shed next to a home when he just couldn’t help himself. Enrique Iglesias’ song “Bailando” started playing on the radio. He and another roofer were working on the roof on the shed while listening to some tunes.

Andrew heard the song playing and couldn’t stop himself from feeling the music. But what he did next has people everywhere laughing out loud.

Andrew just had to get his groove on and stopped working for less than a minute. He started swaying his hips, shaking and boogieing to the hit song.
He was hilarious to watch! Someone else just had to capture Andrew’s impromptu dance performance on the roof – and then Andrew shared it on YouTube where it’s gone viral.

More than one million YouTubers have watched it and several commentators gushed over Andrew’s smooth moves high up above the ground. In fact, one roofing contractor shared that he has his workers stop swinging hammers periodically and take a dance break, too.

Andrew, who is wearing the darker blue shirt, travels between two structures while he dances, completely with choo-choo train arms and swaying hips. He busts out doing the salsa, then executes several hilarious dance moves on the roof.

A few of those moves make you wonder if he might slide right off the roof! His one leap is impressive, albeit startling considering he’s on a roof.

The heel click and hand stand are particularly impressive. He has moves like you wouldn’t believe! Most people couldn’t execute those moves standing on the ground, let alone a slanted roof!

Eventually, his roofing pal just can’t contain himself and joins in on the fun. Both guys are hysterical to watch! You literally will not be able to take your eyes off these two!

When Andrew wriggles the tool belt off his hips, it’s a hoot, but then one of his final moves will leave you awestruck. You have to see this comical rooftop dance routine for yourself. This guy’s awfully good!

Who says that work has to be boring? You’ll get a good laugh out of them rocking the rooftop during their workday.

Woman took 43 wooden pallets and created an adorably chic corner in her yard

Most people throw away or even burn wooden pallets, however, this clever woman decided to store them. When an Imgur user, RedheadFox, had plenty enough, she created something stunning.

It took 43 pallets to make her sketches a reality.

At first, she needed to smooth the surface of the wooden pieces and eliminate the dirt.

Next, RedheadFox painted the pallets and let them dry.

She placed a geotextile fabric(4 x 6 meters) and built the floor.

Added a few more pieces and…

Done!

The perfect terrace to have coffee with your friends or sun-bathing.

To make it cozier, the woman placed some pillows and hung lights.

What do you think of this DIY terrace? Will you now start collecting wooden pallets?

You can totally paint your countertops, and this gorgeous makeover is proof (+6 tips)

Countertops are an integral part of your kitchen and your bathroom. Since they cover so much space, they’re easily the first thing you see upon entering these rooms. That being said, changing the countertops can give the entire room a brand new look.
Instead of paying someone top dollar to redo your countertops, DIY the job yourself and save money. This also allows you to customize the counters to your own specifications. There are many ways you can alter the look of your counters without breaking the bank, and it will freshen up the room, too!

1. Faux granite (h/t Love & Renovations)
Create the look of granite without the hassle using paint. This effect creates a standout countertop without the work and money it would take to use real granite.

2. Spray painted counter (h/t Ad Aesthetic)
Use a simple can of spray paint to totally transform your bathroom simply by changing the color of the counter. This is an easy, cost-effective way to DIY a countertop.

 

3. Chalk paint countertops (h/t Lolly Jane)
Do something different in your kitchen by using chalk paint. This creates a cool, shabby chic and rustic look, and you can always make notes or write recipes right on the counter!

4. Faux concrete (h/t A Beautiful Mess)
Give your counters the cool, chic, minimal look of concrete without the hassle of the real thing. Concrete paint mimics the look and makes it easy to make over your kitchen counters.

5. Faux wood grain (h/t Little Green Notebook)
Craft a faux wood finish using a technique called bois painting. Though it may take some time and effort, the results are simply stunning, and this is versatile enough to use on any type of countertops.

6. Faux marble (h/t Designing Vibes)
Get the look of lovely marble counters using a specific paint process. Priming is the key, and it may take time to achieve this look, but your bathroom will look brand new when you’re done.

Heavy snowfall hits Tokyo, and the results are pretty much what you’d expect

Downtown Tokyo saw its heaviest snowfall for years this Monday, causing travel chaos throughout the city. Cars were stranded and abandoned on roads, trains stopped running and people were left stuck at the airport as 250 international flights were cancelled.

“It hasn’t snowed in Tokyo in four years,” Tokyo resident Yukimura, which coincidentally enough means ‘Snow Village’ in Japanese, told Rasplove. “Four years ago we had even heavier snow and a lot less prep. This time everyone except me knew it was coming, apparently. Was a fun surprise for me though!”

What to do in the face of such a situation? Make snowmen of course! But wait, before you grab a carrot, some pebbles and a couple of sticks for arms, remember, this is Japan. Your three-ball standard fat guy snowman ain’t gonna cut it here. Yukimura explains the story behind the Japanese snowman. “The name for snowman, Yuki Daruma, doesn’t mean snowman, it means snow daruma,” she told us. “Daruma is from the Daruma doll, which is based on Bodhidharma, a Buddhist monk who, according to the tales, had his arms and legs fall off during meditation. That’s why Japanese snowmen have only two layers.”

It appears the Japanese attitude to snow sculptures is much more developed than what we are used to in Europe and North America. What else would you expect from the land that produces some of the most beautiful, creative and cool artworks and innovations in the world? Tokyo is dotted with snow sculptures that will put a smile on your face, and put old carrot nose in your backyard to shame. They are being shared on Twitter via the trending hashtag #雪だるま, and are proving to be wildly popular!

Did Yukimura get out and make a snowman herself? “I did! I had to clean up a bunch of snow outside of work today, and while I was waiting for a turn with the snow shovel I made up a little one for the sign leading to our cafe,” she told Rasplove. “It’s not as cute as the rest though!”

Scroll down to check out some of the best examples out there, compiled for your convenience into a list by Rasplove. Don’t forget to vote for your favourite, and let us know what you think in the comments!

Man builds stunning tiny home – it’s the hidden treasures inside that are most impressive

Situated in Battle Ground, Washington, is one of the most idyllic tiny homes ever to be created. All thanks to a man with a unique artistic vision — Matt Impola.
Matt Impola is the founder of Handcrafted Movement, a construction firm that focuses on building high-quality and handcrafted tiny homes, furniture, and other products. Impola is also the director of the Artisan Academy, so, it’s safe to say he is bursting with creativity and has a keen eye for detail.

Impola’s pride and joy is the ‘Pacific Harmony,’ a 238-sq-ft jaw-dropping home that offers one surprise after another.


The exterior of the home is absolutely gorgeous. It’s a dreamy, little cottage-on-wheels with beautiful lines and a unique design.

Once inside Pacific Harmony, you’re greeted by tall, vaulted ceilings and a bright, open living space.

The gorgeous chevron-patterned wood flooring flows throughout the seating space, small breakfast bar, and into the kitchen. Impola’s use of white paint throughout the home makes the space feel extremely open and welcoming.


The kitchen is surprisingly spacious with full-size appliances. The remarkably tall ceilings give the illusion that you’re in an upscale traditional home, not a 238-sq-ft tiny home.

The quartz breakfast bar can fit up to three stools, and there is hidden storage underneath. There is also a stainless steel gas range with oven, and a full-size refrigerator as well.

Use the hidden ladder to climb up to the 90″ x 92″ sleeping loft.


The ladder is made from salvaged walnut and can be stored away when not in use. The sleeping loft is small; however, the tall, light-colored ceilings and large window help make the space feel larger.

Past the kitchen, and underneath the sleeping loft, is the generously-sized bathroom with a quartz bath vanity and vessel sink.


The sleek bathroom features a 38″ by 38″ shower, an energy efficient, flushing toilet, and washer/dryer hook-ups. The shower is heated by a tankless water heater.

Looking opposite the kitchen, you’ll notice another area past the seating area. Surprisingly, that particular room has multiple functions.

For instance, a table can be folded down from the wall to create a more “formal” dining room.


There is an extra bench for seating with extra storage underneath, and windows surrounding the room let in plenty of natural light.

The room could also serve as an extra sleeping space for guests. Just tuck away the table, and pull down the Murphy bed.


Want to provide you or your guests some solitude? No problem, just draw the privacy curtains.

Every room in Impola’s Pacific Harmony has a fun trick or hidden treasure somewhere inside — and for just $69K, it could be yours! Learn more about this gorgeous home at the Handcrafted Movement website.
