Inspiration abounds! For one solid hour, imaginative ideas for home improvement projects flew through the Twittersphere during our final #SeizetheIdea party with @Techlicious. From tips for organizing your home office to recipes for homemade cleaning supplies and clever ways to remodel a bathroom, participants showed us all the fantastic things you can create at home with a little resourcefulness.
So read through some of the tweets from that party and get inspired to start–or finish–your own home improvement project. And don’t forget, there’s still time to enter to win an Acer Idea Kit in their “Seize the Idea” Contest. What would you do with an Acer Idea Kit? Share your creativity with Acer by midnight on February 28, 2015!
