Pinstrosity!

Hello friends!

So Pinterest has changed everything, huh?!!
Everywhere you turn, someone is doing something they saw on Pinterest.
While everyone loves to talk about their successful endeavors...
what about the EPIC FAILS?


I know I am not the only one out there with some pretty big disasters!
So I was SO happy to stumble upon 
"This isn't a site to just laugh and make fun of projects gone wrong (although occasionally giggles and guffaws do come out), but also to help troubleshoot and learn from the Pinterest Fails we all have."
Here is a FAIL that was on their blog today. I think this is my favorite Pinstrosity yet...
"Over the weekend I was taking the idea of this pin (http://theparishfam.blogspot.com/2011/01/booya-birdies.html) , but on a bit [of a] larger scale. I had a large cheap floor mirror (you know, the one every college girl has in her dorm), I knew I would never use it again, so I thought well why not break the mirror and use that frame for this project?

So on Saturday I sat outside on our apartment balcony and began smashing the mirror out of the frame using a hammer. In the meantime, my 11 month old son was inside and I had the screen door shut so he wouldn't come outside and get into the glass. My son is in this phase where he recently figured out how to scream. Not because he's in pain or frustrated, he just thinks it's cool the noise that he can make. I didn't think anything of it - he just screams a lot lately. We moms have a gift of tuning out our children at times, right?!

About the time I've finished my very fun mirror smash, my husband is now outside helping me clean up, and 3 police officers show up at our balcony. Our neighbor had called in a domestic disturbance reporting violence and a lot of screaming! Needless to say the police officers had quite the chuckle that all the noise was due to a Pinterest project. My husband has informed me that I'm not allowed to do any projects in the future that involve the breaking of anything :-) The picture I've included is proof of the police officers in our home. I'm holding my son and the officer is waving at him :-) Hopefully the actual project won't turn out to be a Pinstrosity - I'd love to have an epic story to tell about decor hanging in my home!"

Moral of the story, be careful of where and when and how loud you are DIY-ing..."


We have to laugh at ourselves, right? :)
