When you get the DIY bug, it bites hard. You start to see potential all around you. Creativity sparks at the strangest times, with seemingly little inspiration. Every pallet looks like a new coffee table and every water jug becomes a funky lampshade. It becomes less about filling a need than making something cool.
But the line between what’s cool and what’s ridiculous can blur quickly. And then what do you have? Something that’s both silly and useless. It’s DIY gone too far.
