DIY Mistakes

It's DIY month here on AT, which got us thinking on past projects completed, and also some of the mistakes made along the way. The latest being our duo-tone dining room paint job...

A result of failing to mix the two cans of paint we used in order to prevent any slight discrepancies in the store's mixing process from being noticeable on the wall (yeah, it can make a big difference). What are some of your worst DIY mistakes? Or if you're cool as a cucumber, what tips can you share with the rest of us for a job well done?
