When DIY Goes Horribly Wrong

I cried. I cried some more. I am home by myself. The cabinet came straight out of the wall, flipped and landed on my new floors. Damn.  It had to be the cabinet full of alcohol. Damn again.

"I thought I drilled into a stud but I was a little worried" said Byron.

I am not speaking to him at the moment.

Sweetie- You will laugh about this.... someday. I'm so glad that no one was hurt. You definitely need to be taken out to dinner! Lori

Karen said...

That would truly be an awful end to my day!

Dori said...

Thanks for showing real life DYI. It's good to know it's not just us. So sorry it happened!

Katie@YogaGal said...

Oh NOOOOOO. Marc and I just stared at your pictures in horror. Is it terrible that he laughed at Byron's statement?

michelle said...

OH NO!!! I am so sorry!!! I hope something really good comes out of this for Byron's sake!!

Angie said...

OH you poor thing!!!! And of course you can't have a drink to dull the pain!!!!!

Erin @ The Little Apartment said...

Oh that just breaks my heart ):

Rachel said...

Oh my gosh. I made my husband read this post. His comment was 'man fail'. And we laughed. I'm sure your hubby feels awful.

Jane said...

Mary Lynn said...

You are hysterical!! Poor you. POOR BYRON!

Under the Willow said...

From a family of home improvement "events" I would have cried too!

Michelle @ Dream Home DIY said...

Oh no!! LOL I promise, this will be one more thing you look back on and giggle about together :0)

Melissa @ The Inspired Room said...

Oh, :-(.

Reminds me of the time our cable guy came to install our new cable line and dropped our mammoth TV on my new bamboo floors, ruining the floor and denting my new cabinets along the way.

Sigh.

Sadness for you.

I have to agree. You will laugh. One day. Today, you cry. I am so very sorry. I'd say lick up the alcohol, but that damned broken glass would probably get in the way. LOL. Bless yoru heart. I'll come over and take you out to dinner...let me know! I wanna meet my new "neighbor" anyway!

KM said...

ohhhhhh MY!!!! You have been through so very very much! I'm sorry! I agree with the rest... someday you WILL look back on this with a giggle. maybe someone is telling you it's time to cut down on the alcohol... :):):) Hang in there!!!!

Kara said...

Damn - not the alcohol!!

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

Ohhh noooo! What a mess! Well, bless your heart. The way you told the story made me laugh out loud, though. "I am not speaking to him at the moment." It reminded me of that "Modern Family" episode when there's an earthquake and the hutch crashes to the ground. Phil says, "Claire had been nagging me to anchor that to the wall for months, so I finally gave in and told her I did it." :-)

Carmie of the Single Nester said...

Oh no. I hope all is better now and that you didn't lose special items.

Julie @ Knitting and Sundries said...

Just ... wow! NOT the alcohol, though!! It could have been worse and landed on the laptop ... I guess ... :( .. I'm sorry, but you WILL laugh actually ... maybe even you're at the point where you can laugh NOW ... but, yeah .. I'd have been bummed .. poor hubby!
