DIY Fail – when not to throw in the towel

What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.  If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Or  this Japanese proverb: “Fall seven times, stand up eight.” This time of year, many of us try to achieve our New Year’s resolutions, or attempt some new DIY projects, for ourselves or our homes.

But …    most of us are not Martha Stewart.  And most of us just throw in the towel. But we’re here to let you know, never give up – your failed project just might be salvageable!Cookie Monster Cupcake fail

This woman’s blog tells the story of a DIY fail that was  rescued from the ashes of despair. What seemed like a simple bed restoration project, then turned into a nightmare of painting, sanding, repainting… and wasps.  Yes. Wasps.

If you’ve run into a funny DIY fail or have a story of your own, please share it on our Pinterest DIY board, or post it on our Facebook page!  If you get it in before Monday, January 21, we’re selecting one winner to receive our customer fave Bamboo towels!
