To begin with, this is not a blog discouraging Do It Yourself projects. We love DIY! Some amazing things have come from people learning to do things themselves. Pinterest has provided endless ways to be your own personal chef, to build your own dining room table, and to create multiple ways to entertain your kids in the summer.
But there are some projects that ultimately should’ve never been categorized as DIY. These usually end up as what has aptly been coined “Pinterest Fails”. Google it sometime when you need a laugh and reality check of your own limitations and capabilities. Some examples include replacing shingles on your roof, trimming your teen daughter’s hair, and decorating your own wedding cake. Unless you have previous experience, we don’t recommend these things! They should be left to a professional; people who have studied and honed this particular craft to bring you the best results. We feel the same about pest control, and we provide some examples as to why that is with some FAQ below – besides the obvious, of course.
