Make Your Own Radiator Cover To Give It An Update

There’s really no way around it: radiators are necessary but quite an eyesore. In older buildings, they’re there to heat up the place (and many times, overheat) and that’s pretty much as good as it gets. Most city dwellers know how ugly and bulky these radiators can be, and everyone is always looking for ways to make it look better.

Here’s a great way to cover up that eyesore without having to buy one, which can run up to $200. It’s time to use your DIY skills and improve the look of your apartment.
