2.Vision vs. Reality


When Karah of The Space Between blog tried to DIY this pallet walkway in her yard, it didn’t turn out exactly as planned. “I don’t know if it was just the perfect storm of pallet walkway killing events. We had a rain storm pretty much immediately after I finished it. Then the sun shone so hot and bright I could almost see the pallet slats warping before my eyes. They even cracked when we stepped on them.” And while she’s a pretty experienced DIY-er, she dubbed this project a “total DIY fail” — proof that even the handiest homeowners experience fails.
