Hack a Laundry Hamper into a Light Tent, Redux

Last week we showed you a clever way to turn a laundry hamper into a light tent. If that method involved too much modifying for your taste, this new hamper-based technique is as simple as it gets.

IKEAHacker reader Shirley Cambell used two IKEA SKUBB laundry hampers. The hampers are already constructed using a white cloth so all you need do is buy two of them, clip them together, and open one of the side panels to create an open ended box. Hit up the link below for more pictures and step-by-step instructions.

Jason Fitzpatrick is a warranty-voiding DIYer who spends his days cracking opening cases and wrestling with code so you don't have to.
