We’ve all been there.
It’s a Saturday afternoon and you’re getting ready to start a DIY home-improvement project. Maybe it’s fixing a leak in the shower, or maybe it’s finally getting around to mulching your flower beds. You get started, everything is going great, you’re feeling like a pro, when all of a sudden, something goes horribly, yet hilariously wrong.
At Zabitat, we love a good DIY project, but we also love not taking ourselves too seriously, and having some fun along the way. Check out these funny videos of our favorite home-improvement fails. We think you’ll get a laugh out of them and maybe even find them inspiring!
Should Have Worn a Hard Hat
Lesson learned. Always wear a hard hat during DIY home renovation. Luckily for this man, drywall is a fairly lightweight material.
Water, Water Everywhere
We have a feeling an indoor pool wasn’t in this man’s renovation budget.
Note to self: Always switch off the water mains before any bathroom home-improvement project!
Better Call Zabitat
Ladder fail. Good thing we know a place where you can find beautiful, affordable front door glass to replace your current broken glass.
Screen Door: 1, Man of the House: 0
We get it. Screen doors break easily and are frustrating to get back on track. Luckily, we’ve got a solution for that problem, too! Check out our retractable screen doors here..
Even something as seemingly simple as changing a lightbulb can be potentially hazardous. Stabilize those stepladders, everyone!
A good reminder to double and triple check those measurements when redesigning your kitchen. Make sure all your cabinets, cupboards, and drawers do what they were designed to do … open!
Too bad our Measurement Guide doesn’t apply to kitchen cabinets as well.
How Not To Trim A Tree
Not much to say about this one except that communication is key when it comes to successful landscaping projects. Talk to your partner and please, oh please, wear a hard hat!
