Hi Stephen Fells - I look at some of them and wonder what were they thinking.

I think some of these are done by people who didn't want to do them in the first place and made sure they would never be asked again!  that was the way my husband got out of grocery shopping.   I asked for 6 lemons for a recipe- he brought home 3 because I surely didn't need 6 lemons - etc - I stopped asking after that

Those are pretty shocking DIY projects. If they paid someone for this work, I truly feel sorry.

I hate to admit it, but I have done the door knob thing.  No pictures, though.  Who needs that kind of proof?

Thanks Stephen for this post, always good for a laugh. It reminds me of some of the things that I've seen over the years, including equally scary repairs below the finished surfaces.

I see this is Part 1, looking forward to seeing more!

Funny, although using the door knob as a door stop can have it's advantages

A lot of thought went into some of those projects. And now we're thinking... what were they thinking.
