We've had drywall dust EVERYWHERE at our house for about 4 months... and my FEET are a wreck too. AH!
I've been waiting for this post since your posts on Twitter and FB! Sounds like you learned a lot! xoxo
Amen! I will use this list next time someone suggests DIY.
I'd add a #7 for me: You'll get distracted halfway through the project with a ton of other things to do and it will lay for years afterwards mocking you with its half completion!
TechyDad - you see? That's exactly why I was desperate to get this stuff done while my husband is away in England. Cuz that's what he does!!! And now I need him to come home and fix it. It's the freaking jugular of irony, I tell you.
Hilarious! I have been following you on twitter and sheepishly have never had the chance to see your blog. Now that we are G+ friends, I have had the chance! I am so happy I did, you are funny!! Love the blog!Stephanie~
maybe stick with smaller projects next time...
24-7-365 mom - But then there would be nothing funny to write about! I really think I should get some credit for having a go....*pouts*
So now we know, we learned, we move on. And have a glass of wine.Would you like to link up your list to my Monday Listicles? Would love to have you. Sure all will forgive the lack of 4.
Don't forget the missing body parts!
plus the fact that the guys who sold you all this stuff have consistently avoided explaining the bits of the job that would have had you abandoning the project before the get go
DIY is impossible to accomplish without copious amounts of profanity. DIY network and virtually all instruction manuals never mention this. Forewarned is forearmed. This has been a public service announcement.
Oh, I am sure there is SOMETHING you could write about on a smaller DIY project... On my most recent small DIY project, I was making a paper mache Beehive for a baby shower, and I managed to some how end up covered in glue... literally, covered in glue. It was in my hair, all over my clothes, my arms and legs.. How is it that paper mache is so messy? The beehive turned out cute though!!
Thank you ever, ever, ever so much for the warning. Does that apply to cooking too? Baking? Cleaning the floors behind things...? Right???@writewrds
I completely agree. I love it!I told my husband before we got married that the 5 divorcing words were "I CAN DO IT MYSELF."Lorie of The Shewbridgeshttp://wmljshewbridge.blogspot.comLJSBlog@aol.com
