Why Show Off Your “Worst” Renovations?

How Can You Win This Prize?

To be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do is share an image of your worst DIY renovation and post it to Instagram. 

This can be a DIY tragedy that you live with right now, or one you’ve since made good with some improved DIY skills – we want to see how bad things are (or were) for you!

Follow these simple steps and £500 worth of DIY vouchers could be yours!

Follow @BestHeatingUK & @interior_styling_18 on Instagram.

Upload your worst DIY nightmare image using the hashtag #MyWorstReno (so we can track your entries!) being sure to tag both accounts in your post.
