‘Well, That Sucks’: 99 Times Homeowners Had Their Day Ruined (New Pics)

The pandemic has turned us all into make-it-yourselfers, more or less. And while most of us have had our inspo put into practice either by trying a recipe that under normal circumstances we’d never dare to challenge, or making a nesting box, others set out on way more elaborate endeavors. As a result, there was an unprecedented boom in homeowners with days that have been ruined beyond repair.

The reasons for this curious phenomenon can be traced back to the seemingly innocent urge for renovation. After all, we all spent a shamelessly huge amount of time in the comfort of our homes that became the target of our idle hands.

Fast forward to today and we now have quite a solid collection of pics that document these home disasters. Thanks to the corner of Reddit known as “Well That Sucks” that has a whopping 2.6M members, we have a lot to learn from what not to do with our home, shelter, rented flat, Airbnb, roof, ‘cause… well, the pics speak for themselves.

Psst! Part 1 with more homeowners having a pretty bad day await right here.
