Tell Us: What's Your Biggest DIY Disaster?

Pin it button big

There was the time I decided to make my own mosaic mirror, and broke enough mirrors to guarantee bad luck for life. Or the time I decided to tackle the small task of repainting my bathroom and ended up peeling off the bubbling, existing paint in huge sheets for days before I could even get started.

For every DIY project that makes it onto the site, there's another that doesn't turn out quite how I'd imagined (I sometimes give a project a month to see how it holds up before posting it). And I'm sure I'm not the only one. So I want to hear your stories, the over-sprayed paint on expensive lawn furniture, the time the dog rubbed up against the freshly painted wall, or the piece that just didn't come out the way you saw it in your head.
