When it gets hot outside, people tend to find extremely creative ways to beat the heat. If you don't have a pool, that's no problem! You can easily make your own pool with inexpensive materials you might already have in your garage! Makeshift pools aren't always pretty, but Facebook user, Torben Jung shows us that it doesn't take much to make a pool that's both functional AND pretty.

He started by laying out a tarp for the base, and using the pallets to create the “bones” of the pool. Torben used nine pallets for his pool, but you can add more if you want a larger pool.

Then he added a liner to seal the pool, and used towels to create padding for the corners.

For a smoother user experience, and added water-proofing, Torben covered the tarp with a pool liner. He also covered the pallets and added trim to make the pool more aesthetically pleasing.
