DIY is not always foolproof and I am proof of that!

23 Aug

Welp, this was Luke’s highchair as of earlier this week.highchair2

This is Luke’s highchair now, boo :(!

highchair fail

Yep that’s right folks, not every DIY project always pans out. The homemade chalk paint I made from baking soda and paint, well that didn’t mix very well with my homemade cleaning solution made from vinegar and water. If you have ever made a homemade volcano, you know that vinegar and baking soda react together and that meant that the highchair started fuzzing as soon as I sprayed it down. Haha, I am laughing at myself right now! The paint started peeling up immediately and Luke’s cutey cute highchair was no more. Welp, looks like this girl is going to be breaking out her electric sander soon.

For those of you how have tried to DIY their own project and had a super-fail moment of their own, you are not alone so don’t give up!

Until next time, Katrina

    I’ve had plenty of DIY fails. It’s all part of the learning process!
