Have you ever done something so terrible that it turned out to be good in its own way? Well, here we have featured 30 pictures that are the perfect example of this thing. 

Also, there is an entire Facebook group dedicated to this thing. It is called Terrible Art in Charity Shops (TAICS). In this group, people are posting pictures of one man’s terrible art that have become another man’s home decor piece. Scroll down to have a look.
