Here at Apartment Therapy we are all about the DIY, and any DIY-er worth their salt knows the wide range of materials, projects, and (let's face it) injuries we deal with on a regular basis. In Jenny's case, she wrestled with an unruly mess of wire fencing (which she turned into a fab table, by the way!) which landed her in the hospital exactly eight days later with, you guessed it, tetanus.
So, first up on the list of things to tackle in 2013: find out when your last tetanus shot was, and check with your doctor to see if you're up to date or if you need a booster (Every 10 years is often the time frame).
And a note to Jenny: We're glad you're okay; thanks for sharing your story as a great reminder to the rest of us!
