12 Most Hilarious DIY Home Improvement Fails

We know April Fool’s Day was a handful of days ago, but we figured you could use a little pick me up! Not only are these DIY home improvement fails ridiculously funny, they are also relatable. We have all had a project (or seven) that we start with the utmost confidence and then, BOOM, catastrophe strikes. There’s no need to feel alone in your home improvement hiccup. We’ve all run into the same things… probably. 

These DIY fails were all sourced from the DIWHY subreddit. It’s a great page to scroll through to make you feel better about your own failed projects.

Is This Seat Taken?

Have you ever looked at your old pair of jeans and thought “Hmm, these would make a fantastic bar stool?” Well, somebody did. And no, we don’t just mean using the denim to make a cushion.

sew chic

Sew Chic

Vintage sewing machines and sinks go together, right? The answer should be no, but somehow this person was able to stitch this together.

pool party

Pool Party!

If you need somewhere to park your boat and also want to have a pool this is one way to get the job done. However, we highly suggest not doing any cannonballs into this pool.

noodle time

It’s Noodle Time

We are always looking for ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle plastics, but this is not exactly what we had in mind… At least you’ll know when it’s dinner time!

someone dispose

Somebody, Dispose of This!

This DIY garbage disposal has us at a loss for words. If it works, it works, but you probably shouldn’t make anymore banana smoothies in that blender.

bathroom backyard

From Bathroom to Backyard

Do you have an old bathtub taking up space? If you are desperate – and we mean desperate – for some patio furniture, here’s a terrible way to recycle your tub.

dinner show

Dinner and a Show

Um not too sure about this one, folks. Maybe we’re thinking about it the wrong way. Who knows? It could be Wile. E. Coyote’s kitchen!

this bathroom rocks 1

This Bathroom Rocks!

We’re not sure how functional this bathroom is. From the looks of it, it isn’t very comfortable. What we do know for sure is that it probably won’t be coming off anytime soon.

penny for your thoughts

Penny For Your Thoughts?

This isn’t the worst thing we have on our list of DIY home improvement fails, but it certainly isn’t the best option out there. How much do you think this would cost? We would love to get your two cents on this one.

Tile shower DIY home improvement fails

Mosaic Ain’t So!

So, we’re pretty sure you’re not supposed to use all of your tile samples in one space. On the bright side, it does look like they tried to make some sort of pattern with it.

shower with love

Showered With Love

We can’t argue that rain shower heads are an amazing upgrade to include in your next bathroom remodel, but this one is not all it’s all piped up to be.

number one fan

#1 Fan

With the temperatures getting warmer, everyone is getting their fans out. We do give this one points for creativity and resourcefulness, but at the end of the day we’re not a huge fan.
