My DIY Confession- Win a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3!

Mon 21 Jul 2014 admin

How many of us have spent our evenings and weekends hopelessly attempting to finally put together that flat-pack cabinet for the bedroom, or somehow get that shelf up on the wall? Unfortunately not all of us have the know-how to make every DIY project perfect, but here at Poles Direct we believe we shouldn’t be ashamed of it.

What we’re looking for from you

Poles Direct are looking for bloggers from a wide range of backgrounds to confess to their DIY disasters.

We want you to write a confession detailing how and why you failed to complete a home-based DIY project properly. We then want you to take a photo of your failed DIY project with your confession in plain sight and upload it onto your blog for your followers and the whole world to see, with the title, ‘My DIY Confession.


What’s in it for you?

The winning entrant will receive a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 and two lucky runners up will get to select a new set of blinds for their homes!

Not only will you get the chance to win some great prizes but you also get the chance to talk about something different and hopefully make a few people smile and feel better about their own failed DIY and decorating projects.

How to get Involved…

 Create a blog post and add the title “My DIY Confession.

Take a photo of a written or printed confession detailing why you failed the project (what’s wrong with it) next to your failed project.

Upload the photo to your blog and add it into your post.

Give your readers the background to the DIY fail.

Include a do-follow hyperlink to in the following or similar text:
