My personal favorite is the yeehawt tub.

You know what they say, "If it ain't broken, don't fix it." But you know what? Even if it IS broken, maybe you still shouldn't fix it. Here are 17 mind-boggling pictures from r/DiWHY of DIY attempts gone sooo wrong:

1. This person's garage was too small to fit their car, so the next step was, of course, to make a Kitchen Hole™:

2. This EXTRA above ground pool:
