How many projects have you undertaken that have… well… failed? It’s okay, we get it. Sometimes things just don’t turn out like you expect them to. As a result, you might be less willing to take on the next DIY project on your list.
We’ve compiled a little best-of-the-web list of confidence building DIY projects. We hate to call them totally foolproof, but they’re pretty close!
DIY Workout Shirt
How many old t-shirts do you have around the house with holes in the sleeve or stretched out necklines? Turn them into cute workout t-shirts with this clever idea from Rabbit Food for My Bunny Teeth. This project is super easy, and if you mess up, it’s a small loss. After all, you can always go dig up another t-shirt out of the bottom of your dresser!
No Glue, No Nails Bookshelf
Okay, so we covered four bookshelf ideas a couple weeks ago. However, we’re back for more. (We told you we have a lot of books!) This clever idea requires no nails, glue, tools, anything. All you need is two ladders and a few planks of wood. Set up the ladders, lay your planks between the steps, and add books.
Visually, this concept can be really hit or miss. Ugly ladders and too many books will look junky. However, select aesthetically pleasing ladders, some nice, stained or painted wood and leave a good amount of space on the “shelves,” and you can get a great result!
To see a more visually attractive one-ladder version of this concept, check out this image.
Install a Bike Rack
Instead of buying a bike rack, why not make your own out of wooden pallets? The pallet rack in this example is okay looking, but we think you could improve upon it with some fun paint and designs!
