We’re concerned. We’ve talked to your housemates, your parents, your partner, even your gerbil, and these DIY home improvement projects, they’ve…they’ve got to stop. It’s time to put down the duct tape. You can’t rely on 3-D glasses to function as well as safety goggles and no, baking soda doesn’t get rid of all stains. And the employees at your local hardware store. They’re weary. They can only custom cut so many sections of PVC pipe before they start using it as a shield against you.
But we understand. You’re unique- you dig self-discovery, you crave ownership of your space, and you want your pad to scream “ME!” So might we suggest these easy DIY wall art ideas to upgrade your space instead? No knowledge of electrical circuitry necessary, minimal assembly required. Win for you, win for your walls, win for all your loved ones.
Sincerely, your Mom, friend, coworker, neighbor, partner, gerbil, and that guy at the hardware store

Or that medieval watchtower you tried to install as the first line of defense against those pesky utility bill deliveries? It’s walls are looking bare and so…feudal.

It’s time to go find yourself in some art- you deserve it.
