Unexpected Homemade

Expanding beyond simple DIYs, consumers are making unexpected items themselves

Implications - The concept of DIY has been quantified by sites like Pinterest that keep the parameters within a certain range to ensure that participants aren't overwhelmed, but there is a growing movement of DIYers putting skills to extraordinary use by creating automobiles and furniture themselves. This bold move against the corporately manufactured economy signifies an increase in those wanting to indeed make it themselves, but also that the desire for rustically designed, recycled goods is showing no sign of letting go of its in-vogue status.
