Ask any homeowner if there is something new to be done in their house, and they will always say yes because these things are never-ending. Just when you fix the leaking kitchen tap, you have to get rid of the weeds in your garden or repaint the walls. The list goes on and on; however, these minor tasks are nothing compared to what we are about to show you, and they will have you saying, "Thank god this didn't happen to me!"
When You Live In Norway And Forget To Close The Window One Time
If you want to make a DIY indoor igloo, all you have to do is leave the window open at night. This is how this person made an igloo in Svalbard, Norway.
Now that's what we call a very chill work environment. We just hope this person created a snowman to do their work as well.
When You Finally Kill The Spider
This person claimed that they were renovating and removed a load-bearing wall, but we think there is another side to the story. Who knows? They might be trying to kill a spider with a sledgehammer.
This is more proof that DIY home renovations only work if you have experience and do your homework.
A Bird Door Instead Of A Cat Door
DIYs are fun as you get to create something without professional help. It is not only a good way to kill time, but it saves money as well.
This person made a minor mistake, and the cat must be thinking, "challenge accepted." Maybe they should put a little ladder there, and the problem is solved.
When You Spray Weed Killer Instead of Weed-And-Feed
Maybe it's just us but doesn't the pattern actually look cool? We understand that this person used weed killer instead of weed-and-feed, but they need to go back to school because their spraying sucks as well.
Our suggestion is that don't use chemical pesticides. They are terrible for the environment.
Did Elsa Cried Here?
We must admit that this looks like a cool disaster. These homeowners forgot to shut off the main water valve for the winter in a cabin, and it turned into a frozen bathroom.
Too bad it is not a big bathroom, or else they could ice-skate in it. Hey, at least they have plenty of ice for drinks.
The "I Told You So" Moment
This hilarious fail shows a woman's foot coming through the ceiling, and her husband must be thinking, “Oh, look, my wife is falling through the ceiling! Quick, let me snap a pic."
She wanted to get their Christmas tree from the attic, and her husband told her not to step on the drywall. After this happened, she admitted that she didn't know what drywall was.
The Wife is Always Right
This person's wife told him to measure the door frame, but he said, "All doors are the same size." He didn't know or want to believe that his wife is always right.
Leave the DIY to your wife. We really want to see his reaction after his wife said, "I told you so."
How You Know It's Summer In Australia
It is so hot in Australia that even the outdoor lights melted. If different types of animals in Australia can't kill you, then heat will definitely do the job. Some may say that the lights look kind of cute when they're bent.
Have these people ever thought about moving somewhere colder, like an active volcano or the surface of the sun?
A Cursed Closet Door
If this doesn't make someone believe that the Boogeyman lives in their closet, we don't know what will.
The good thing is this person now knows the monsters are no longer in there; they are probably under the bed.
Only The Tough Survives
How many of you know the phrase "Survival of the fittest" from Darwinian evolutionary theory? Does that apply to this photo too?
The little nail survived while two hammers died. Was the nail made of Krypton? What this person needs is Thor's hammer.
Well, That Sucks
This homeowner went down to the basement to do laundry, and now they have bigger problems than dirty laundry.
It almost looks like a sinkhole started! They must have said, "Honey, we now have a patio door in the basement."
The Haunting of The Kitchen Cabinet
These homeowners were scared after hearing a loud noise at four in the morning. They came out to see what happened and found this disaster waiting for them.
After seeing this, everyone should make sure nobody in your household has an imaginary friend.
Everyone After Eating Taco Bell
When this woman bought a new plant pot, she decided to put it on the shelf over the toilet. An hour later, they heard a crash and found this mess in the toilet.
At least no one was on the toilet. That's a crappy way to go. The only good news is that the plant survived, and the weak toilet didn't make it.
Common Sense Is Rare These Days
Thanks to the COVID-19, most of us are confined to our homes. This person saw too many lockdown home renovation videos on YouTube and Instagram, so they decided to do it too.
Well, they didn't use common sense and take the clothes out first before painting. This is how 5-minute crafts end up if you don't have any experience or common sense.
The Grill Needed to Cool Down
A storm came through, and the funny part is that the plastic furniture barely moved while the grill blew 30 feet into the pool.
It's because the grill is on wheels that weren't locked. The poor grill just wanted to cool down for a moment.
Call the Glitter Infestation Center
This is something no parents want to see. If something like this happens, just pack your things and move out.
If you don't move out, even your great-great-great-great grandchildren are still going to find specks of glitter in the house.
When You Decide Not To Use A Professional
You may say that plumbing is not for everyone. Some may say physics is not for everyone. Others may say perspective isn’t for everyone. We say common sense is not for everyone.
There should be a petition to rename "Common Sense" because it clearly isn’t common. The only positive thing we can see here is that it won't get clogged so often.
You Had One Job
What would be your reaction after seeing that your fire alarm caught on fire? Honestly, this is the definition of ironic.
The fire alarm could save others from death but not itself. RIP you warrior who died protecting no one.
Live By The Freezer, Die By The Freezer!
This person saw the mess in the morning and remembered that they wanted a cool soda and forgot to take the tin of coke out of the freezer. Lessons were learned that day.
How many of you are laughing inside because it has happened to you as well. We can tell it is not a pleasant experience at all.
"They Don't Make Them Like They Used To"
We feel for this guy. He got up in the middle of the night to drink water, and just as he opened the fridge, the door fell off in his hand. Of course, it happened in the middle of the night when you don’t feel like dealing with anything.
Well, that's what you get for eating too much spinach. Now, he can keep the fridge door next to the nightstand.
Reminds Us Of The "Final Destination" Franchise
This person slipped in the shower and landed on the toilet. Luckily, there were no serious injuries. However, it did remind us of that bathroom scene in the movie Final Destination part 1.
Use a non-slip mat for the shower and the tile floors! Or it would be best to use non-slip tiles for the bathroom floor.
The Floor Is Concrete Lava
This person's friend posted this photo of their job site, and it looks terrible – the moment you realize you screwed up.
Instead of grabbing a shovel and working fast before the concrete becomes hard, they could just smooth it out and let it set. Maybe that would work.
RIP New Glass Stovetop
This person installed a brand new glass stovetop, and the cabinet decided it was time to cause havoc in the kitchen.
Well, at least we know what is under the glass stove top now. It seems pretty clear by now that the cabinet does not like the stove. It was like, "I'd rather die than see that stove every day."
Hey, At Least It Didn't Leak
This is what happens when the contract goes to the lowest bidder. The husband was like, "We should have checked it better before purchasing."
Honestly, this is just disgraceful. It is not only dishonest but illegal as well. We hope they catch the contractor who worked on this house.
Attack of The Lawn Chair
It is amazing and scary to see 110+ mph winds impale a house with a lawn chair in Iowa. Hey, we feel bad for the homeowner, but you have to admit that this is impressive.
Was the chair angry with the homeowners? Maybe they broke one of its brothers, and it wanted revenge. Maybe we will never know the truth behind it.
It Always Happens At 3 AM!
This person was scared when their glass sink/counter randomly exploded in the middle of the night. Was it random, or did a ghost break it?
Whether you believe in ghosts or not, something like this can really spook you in the middle of the night.
That's One Judgmental Toilet
This one is hilarious and sad. This guy lost 1/3rd of his weight and finally felt he wasn't too fat anymore. Well, the mean toilet disagreed.
Good for you, man, that you lost so much weight. Hey, don't listen to that stupid toilet – they talk crap all the time anyway.
Did They Fill The Cracks With Cream?
Someone saw this post on Facebook of a homeowner who was asking for a contractor. Well, they don't need a contractor; they need a sorcerer. We'd get the hell out of there as soon as possible.
The contractor will say, “A hundred and fifty tonnes of soil, rock, and clay, all pushing against the basement wall? Just squirt a bit of expanding foam in the gaps, and you'll be golden, good as new, my friend."
Did You Try Turning The Fan Off And On?
This person should have gone for a bigger basket after turning the fan on and off didn't work.
But no…they were like, "I should take a photo before trying to find a bigger bucket."
We Call It Accidental Art
This is how gravity always wins. At least this person lives to tell the tale. Either this person has a very strong head or soft walls - we'd go with the second one.
We think we know these homeowners. Hey, does your kitchen cabinet keep falling as well?
Was There A Scary Girl Inside?
This person fell 30 feet down a well through the floor of their house they did not know even existed. You can say a well sucked that person up.
We can't even imagine the amount of therapy needed to function normally after that incident. Just imagine how helpless that person would have felt if he lived alone.
When You Forget The First Rule Of Painting
These unlucky homeowners were left scratching their heads when they got their doors painted during a remodeling job, and the painters forgot to put the plastic covering on the ground.
Someone is getting new floors. Do you think the painters should have compensated the homeowners or not?
When the governor ordered all "non-life sustaining" businesses to close (that included contractors and construction as well), this is the current state of this person's only bathroom. Maybe he could use the bathroom at the governor’s house.
This is a toilet with the highest difficulty setting on. Well, at least that bucket can solve part of their problems. Think Positive!
Some Assembly Required
This person waited 6 weeks for an expensive toilet to arrive so they could fit it at a client's house. This is how it finally arrived. Now, this person does not believe in the quote of Aristotle, “Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.”
We really think it came with a note stating"some assembly required." We had no idea that IKEA sold toilets as well.
When It's Just Not Your Day
This unlucky person came home to this mess. The cabinet fell off the wall and shattered all the handmade dishes she had collected from little shops and farmer markets over the years.
That's not it. The cabinet also knocked open the fridge door, ruining all the food inside it. That’s like killing two birds with one stone. We now know cabinets are the real villains.
He Couldn't HANDLE It
This person broke the door handle of his apartment and got himself locked inside. We can understand that this person wanted to take a picture of it, but wasn't there a key to the apartment near him? Or did he throw the key outside when he broke the handle? We are a bit confused here.
Why are we sensing that this person made up the entire “locked in the apartment” story? He may have broken the handle, but the other part is a bit too much to digest.
That Is Alcohol Abuse
This person bought a house in July, and the previous owners were gracious enough to leave a mini-fridge in the basement. So, this person moved all the beer and alcohol downstairs (because who doesn't love chilled drinks) and then discovered it was a freezer. The ice on the top shelf should have given it away.
We think the problem is that he did not drink the beer often enough to determine it was freezing, so he needs to drink beer more often.
Living In A Tree House
We feel bad for this person as a tree tipped over onto their apartment. But let's take a look at the other side of the picture as well. For years, we have been cutting trees to make our homes, and now these trees have finally started to fight back.
Maybe the tree saw how much fun these people used to have in the apartment and just wanted to join them. As much as we know, the rent just went up because treehouses are not cheap to live in.
That's SHOCKING News
This person had two outlets in the house he bought two years ago. The sockets didn't work, so he purchased two new outlets to replace them. Well, it turns out there were no wires in the outlets to connect them.
Even the newly purchased sockets look surprised. This person should feel relieved because at least there is no wiring issue.
We Would Hate To Have To Clean This Up
Here is another picture where someone has not cleaned their room before posting online. Jokes aside, no one was hurt. Honestly, we would hate to have to clean that.
On the bright side, this person can now upgrade to the fancy foam insulation easily.
When There Is No Need for Morning Coffee
Imagine waking up and seeing your kitchen smiling back at you. We bet you won't need any morning coffee. You will be like, "Today is going to be my day. Oh...Screw it; I'm going back to bed."
We are pretty sure the cabinets were like, "Oh, look, a penny!" Why do we have a feeling that the same person is installing all these cabinets?
It's Called Modern Art
So the fiancé was being thoughtful when he decided to take the paint cans to the basement. There was nothing wrong with his intention, but the execution was flawed. He tried carrying too much at once. Now she is dying inside because they just bought the new house.
Why do we have a feeling that plenty of rich people with bad taste in art would pay good money for this?
Sometimes, Size Matters
This person found out the hard way that they don't own a queen-size mattress, and we actually feel bad for them. Always measure, even if you "think" you know the result.
They should try putting the frame in the washer or something. Who knows, maybe it will shrink.
Hang It Up As An Art Piece
This person was waiting for their brand new smart TV, and this is how it arrived. Who left it blistering in the sun?
Honestly, it does not look like a smart TV. It seems more intellectually challenged. The person who dropped it must be like, "Don't worry, boss, it was just a nudge."
Bye-Bye Deposit Money
This person decided to clean their flat after their 2-year tenancy was about to end. Just before they were ready to move out, they hit the oven door and broke the glass. They instantly knew that they were not going to get the deposit money.
So, the moral of the story is that you shouldn't clean when leaving the apartment. If something like that happens with you, just go and buy a new oven door. We are guessing it'll be cheaper.
