Are these the worst DO IT YOURSELF fails ever?


Don't try to play Jenga! Someone very unwisely decided to use books for structural repairs instead of the more conventional choice of bricks 

Rather than buying a new table you can just stick some wood on the legs to make the one you have higher 

This water bottle found a new lease of life when the tap broke 

If you don't have the correct plug to fit the socket, there's no need to worry! 

A broken toilet that ended up being repaired with a seat of a different kind 

Books seem to be a popular choice when building materials are in short supply 

You've heard of up-cycling and so has the creative person who managed to combine a cooker and a washing machine in one 

Empty bottles of whiskey and wine can come in handy when they toilet flush is broken

A humble bottle of shower gel became an important component of the bathroom lighting in this house 

Shower at your own risk! Bare wires make having a scrub a precarious endeavour in this home 

Some crafty individual found another use for a butter knife when they lock on the toilet door broke 

Meccano magic: It's probably fair to say the bricks belonged to someone not old enough to shave 

A unique toilet roll holder certainly made a visit to this bathroom a unique experience 

Some cars come fitted with on-board entertainment, but others have to improvise 

If you can't find a chair, precariously balancing on a water bottle is an alternative you've probably not considered before 

If the spout on the coffee machine is broken, you could just stick a fork in as an alternative 

This dangerously propped up air conditioning unit looks as if it could buckle the stool at any moment 

Can't find roller skates to fit? Just tape some wheels on to your boots

A lack of a plug doesn't have to stop you charging if you have some screwdrivers to hand
