Theodore Roosevelt once said: "The only man who never makes a mistake is the man who never does anything." Heartening words, my fellow DIY'ers. Because every man or woman who has ever wielded a paintbrush or screwdriver also knows the taste of failure. It's good to remember that those failures make us better at what we do.
Welcome to DIY Disasters, a brand new, very fun feature here at DIY Life. Join us each week as we explore the ways that DIY projects of all shapes and sizes can backfire! We're kicking off the series with my new photo gallery, "Messy Paint Mishaps."
