Art some point we have all been there. We recognise a DIY job in need of attention and think to ourselves “that should be easy enough”. However, the end result is not exactly how we planned. Here at HeitonBuckley, the home of DIY, we take a look at 8 ridiculous DIY fails we came across and wanted to share. Enjoy.
1) Toilet fail
Now we’re all for making use of small spaces, but there’s saving space and there’s just plain stupid, not to mention unhygienic.
2) Headlight fail
These guys are miles ahead than the previous DIYers as at least they’ve thought of the indicator with this one. Still not advisable but in the world of dodgy headlights, they’re one step ahead.
3) Double lightswitch fail
It probably does work, and it’s fine if you’re not bothered about aesthetics or respect for your craftsmanship. Like, at all. In the slightest.
4) Hedge trimming fail
We sympathise with all the gardeners out there with tall hedges and the nightmare it is to keep them in shape, but this really takes the biscuit. We definitely don’t recommend you try this, for so many reasons.
5) Roofing fail
Not quite a DIY job but it doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in the professionals does it?
6) Outdoor painting fail
When you hear of someone painting outdoors, you think the outside of a house or perhaps a fence. Not the side of a massive cliff. Apparently this man in Qijiang, China man painted the side of a cliff green as he claims it would improve the feng shui of his nearby home. We don’t know if it worked but we do know it’s just plain wrong.
7) Sink fail
Sometimes it’s best to wait for the correct fixtures rather than hoping it will do. So close, so close.
8) Stair fail
Now technically these stairs do the job but you wouldn’t want to be in a hurry and take that corner at any high speed.
