Not only does DIY’ing save money, but it can be a fun pastime. And, if you do it yourself, then you’ll feel even more proud of your brand new room or home. Unfortunately, not everyone has the skills to do it themselves… Over the years, we have seen some truly terrible home renovation fails, that will make you want to call in a decorator for your next project.
As humans, we live in a consumer society where we can show off who we truly are with the things we buy. We can show our love for fashion by the clothes we wear or our chic side with the interior of our homes. The things we own are our identity and what we want the world to see of us. So, it makes sense that people want their homes to look as creative or intriguing as they feel. If your home doesn’t show off who you are to visitors, then it may be time for a little home renovation.
A trip to the DIY store, a weekend off, and perhaps a willing volunteer or two is all you need to transform a room… Most of the time. However, if none of you have ever even lifted a paintbrush before then you could be in for a bit of a shock. DIY is not as easy as they make it look on TV or in magazines. One wrong sweep of the paintbrush can totally ruin the room’s vibe.
Luckily, you can always repaint a room or move some furniture to fix most DIY problems. For these home renovators, however, that isn’t always the case. If you are planning on sprucing up your home any time soon, then you may want to scroll through these fails to make sure you don’t commit the same DIY crimes as these people. If it’s taught us one thing, it’s that if we ever want to do any work on our own homes, we can’t just rely on Pinterest. We may need to call in a professional!
