Do have professionally coiffed tresses and make up, perfectly manicured nails, crisp and spotless attire, and that come-hither look so natural to all Queens of DIY.

Don't wear the only pair of rubber gloves you can find if they're XXL, then drop the can of stain straight down on the concrete and try and catch it before it hits the ground (therefore finding your face inches from the can when it hits). Trust me. It's not good.
This is my first post for Tongue-In-Cheek Tuesday; thanks for the invitation Bliss.
So many faux pas in my repertoire to choose from. Thankfully they don't all have photos to document them, like this one did. I stripped the white paint from my great grandmother's dresser and was staining it a dark walnut when I made this classic move. Lots of scrubbing with a stiff brush and soap and it still took weeks for the stain to completely fade. Nice.
Thanks for visiting -- and be careful out there.
